Revolution, still in search of playoff berth, face New York City FC

With the regular season coming to a close Sunday, the Revolution travel to Yankee Stadium to face New York City FC, with a playoff berth on the line for New England.

The Revolution have failed to punch their ticket to the MLS playoffs over the last four games, going 0-3-1.

New England can clinch a berth with a win or draw against NYC, or an Orlando City draw or loss at Philadelphia. However, the Revolution have a plus-8 goal differential, so even with a loss and Orlando City win, New England could still make the playoffs.

“We win, we’re in — that’s the mentality,” said center back Andrew Farrell. “We want to take this big step.”

There are nine scenarios that could play out on Sunday, seeing the Revolution finish anywhere from fourth place to sixth place and facing one of four possible opponents. All Eastern Conference games begin at 5 p.m. on Sunday.

This will be the Revolution’s second visit to Yankee Stadium. On March 15, New England was the opponent for expansion NYC’s first-ever home game. The Revolution lost, 2-0, as David Villa and former Revolution draft pick Patrick Mullins scored.

The last meeting between the teams was July 18 at Gillette Stadium. Lee Nguyen scored in the 12th minute to lead the Revolution to a 1-0 victory.

NYC, which has been eliminated from playoff contention, is led by designated player David Villa. The former Spain international and FC Barcelona star has 17 goals this season, more than a third of the team’s total.

New England, meanwhile, has scored only twice in its four-game winless streak. The Revolution are hoping a win against NYC can boost momentum entering the playoffs.

“Going into the playoffs, it’s not necessarily how you’ve done in your last five games but your last game,” said Farrell. “You want to get that momentum going. It’s a really important game for us. We’ve got to take care of business.”

If the Revolution make the playoffs, they would play a knockout-round match Wednesday or Thursday.

“It’s crunch time,” said midfielder Scott Caldwell. “We know we need to step up.”

Revolution at New York City FC

 When, where: Sunday, 5 p.m., at Yankee Stadium, New York.

 TV, radio: CSN

 Records: Revolution, 13-12-8 (47 points); NYC, 10-16-7 (37 points).

Huge crowd expected for Revolution-Impact match

On Saturday, the Revolution will play their final home game of the season in front of what could be a record-breaking crowd at Gillette Stadium, as Didier Drogba and the Montreal Impact come to town.

Both New England and Montreal will be looking to clinch a playoff spot Saturday.

A win or tie will be enough for the Revolution to punch their ticket to the playoffs. Montreal needs a win to ensure a berth. Both teams could have clinched a spot Friday night, but Orlando City beat visiting NYCFC, 2-1.

According to Revolution president Brian Bilello, attendance Saturday could reach 40,000, which would be the largest crowd in team history. New England’s current record for a regular-season game is 39,256 for an Aug. 30, 2008, game against David Beckham and the Los Angeles Galaxy.

“You can feel the difference when you are on the field,” said Revolution defender Jose Goncalves. “It’s extra motivation. I like to play in a stadium that’s full, packed with big ambience. It will be a really good game and I’m excited for that.”

This will be the third meeting of the season between the Eastern Conference rivals, with Montreal holding a 1-0-1 advantage. The Revolution hosted the Impact on March 21 in their home opener, playing to a 0-0 draw despite being a man up for much of the second half.

The next meeting came Sept. 19, when the Impact throttled the Revolution, 3-0, in a rain-soaked match at Montreal’s Stade Saputo, as Drogba had a goal and an assist.

Drogba was acquired by Montreal in a trade with Chicago July 27, and in nine games he has tallied a team-leading nine goals.

However, it is unclear whether Drogba will factor in Saturday’s clash. Coach Mauro Biello was cautious the last time his team played on turf, giving Drogba only 30 minutes of playing time in a 2-1 loss at Orlando City.

The Revolution are looking to clinch a playoff spot for the fourth consecutive game. After going 0-2-1 in their last three matches, they hope to find their form as the postseason approaches.

Revolution midfielders Jermaine Jones and Lee Nguyen are coming off a midweek stint with the US national team, which lost to Costa Rica, 1-0, Tuesday. Jones started but played only the first half, while Nguyen came on as a substitute for the last 18 minutes.

“This is what you play for,” said Revolution coach Jay Heaps. “We’re excited that it’s going to be a good crowd, and we want to go out there and punch our ticket.”

Revolution again look to clinch playoff spot

By: Dan Shulman

The last two weekends have seen the Revolution end their winning streak and miss out on two chances to clinch a playoff berth. On Saturday, the Revolution will visit Eastern Conference rival Chicago for a chance to extinguish the Fire and earn their third consecutive trip to the MLS postseason.

The Revolution, who sit in a tie for second place in the East, only 1 point out of the top spot, are coming off a disappointing 1-1 home draw last Saturday against the Philadelphia Union. Despite outshooting their opponents, 11-2, the Revolution were frustrated by Union goalkeeper Andre Blake, who set a franchise record with 10 saves.

The Revolution and Fire have met twice this season, with New England holding a 1-0-1 advantage. The Revolution won, 2-0, at home in June before a controversial 2-2 draw on the road in late July (the Fire tied the game on a penalty call that was disputed by New England).

New England is 6-3-2 against the Fire since Jay Heaps took over as coach in 2012.

The Fire have been eliminated from playoff contention following a winless September, but Revolution midfielder Diego Fagundez said they are “still playing for pride. They want to show what kind of team they are. We just have to be ready for that.”

Chicago has undergone a coaching change. Frank Yallop was fired two weeks ago, replaced on an interim basis by Brian Bliss.

“We’re looking at film differently with Bliss there now,” said Heaps. “There’s a little different feel in how they’re set up, but it’s not a total, drastic change. It’s very hard to do that in a short period of time.”

Revolution designated player Jermaine Jones was able to play the full 90 minutes for the second straight weekend against the Union. Jones had hernia surgery in the spring and returned to the field in early August.

“In terms of what Jermaine brought from a physical standpoint, what he brought from a ball-winning standpoint, what he brought from a presence standpoint, from a leadership standpoint — that was well beyond 100 percent,” said Heaps. “I thought he was awesome.”

New England could clinch a playoff berth before the final whistle Saturday — with an Orlando City loss or tie against Montreal; that game begins an hour before the Revolution and Fire kick off at 8:30 p.m.

“We can still clinch a playoff spot, so they’re going to make it as hard as possible to get there,” said Fagundez. “We just have to do everything we can to get those 3 points.”
