Charlotte FC vs New England Revolution Pick

 New England Revolution to win

The home side are yet to find any fluency and have been underperforming all over the pitch.

Ideal to back the away side to pick up a win by 2+ goals, and the cards shown will be relatively low. Both sets of players do not lunge into tackles and aren’t too aggressive on the pitch in general. It should be a treat to watch, but an away win is all but guaranteed on paper, although a clean sheet is unlikely for New England.

Charlotte FC vs New England Revolution Prediction

Charlotte FC managed to get their first goal in MLS history when Adam Armour equalized against Atlanta United last week.

They are still looking for their first points of the season, though, and that hunt seems set to continue.

This weekend, they are up against the New England Revolution, the 2021 Supporters’ Shield winners. Despite not making a good start to the season so far, the away side have the significantly better team on paper and should easily start stronger side on the pitch as well.

Expect Charlotte to get on the scoresheet again, but their home fans are unlikely to celebrate their first points. The Revs tend to keep possession of the ball and could frustrate the home side throughout the game.

Charlotte FC With The Worst Possible Start To The Season

Charlotte FC made their debut in the MLS this season, and it is fair to see they’re having more than a fair share of teething troubles.

They have lost all three games so far and currently sit second from bottom in the Eastern Conference, with only Montreal having a worse start than them. They have managed just one goal in three matches while conceding six times, and have the dubious distinction of being one of two sides who are yet to put points on the board this season.

The new side kicked off their MLS campaign at DC United and were comfortably beaten. The Washington side picked up a 3-0 win thanks to Michael Estrada’s brace and Ola Kamara scoring a minute after coming on in the second half. They did dominate the possession and managed more shots on target than DC but managed to force ill Hamid to make just one save in the match.

Charlotte were handed a huge task in their first home game, with formidable opponents in LA Galaxy. The record crowd did all they could to push their side on the pitch, but the players could not get things over the line despite a relatively improved performance.

While Galaxy bombarded them with chances, it took a stunner from Efrain Alvarez to help them edge a 1-0 win and walk away with all three points. The result didn’t go, head coach, Miguel Angel Ramirez’s way, but he would have been pleased to see his plays work the opponent keeper a little more.

After failing to score in their first two matches, Charlotte did get their share of MLS history when Armour found the back of the net in the third game of the season.

They were away at Atlanta United, and Josef Martínez had just handed the home side the lead in the second half.

The goal pulled them back on level terms and looked set to get them their first points of the season. But Jake Mulraney had other plans and scored deep into stoppage time to win it for Atlanta and send Charlotte fans home disappointed again.

They will need to be much tighter at the back to stand a chance against the Revs.

New England Revolution Yet To Hit Top Gear

After winning the 2021 Supporters’ Shield, New England Revolution had targets on their backs this season.

Bruce Arena’s side lost just five times in the league last season but were knocked out by eventual winners New York City FC in the Conference semifinals.

They returned full of confidence to replicate that kind of a league record this season, but things haven’t yet worked out in that direction. The Revs have picked up just one win in their opening three games and currently sit 17th in the Supporters’ Shield standings, while languishing in 9th in the Eastern Conference table.

This season, Portland Timbers were their first opponents, and Arena’s side were made to struggle.

Despite taking the lead late in the first half, New England fell short on their game management, and the Timbers fought back to equalize in the 60th minute. Debutant Sebastian Lletget managed to get them the lead once again, but Yimmi Chará’s spectacular overhead kick saw them share the points on opening day.

The Revs then managed to bounce back to collect all three points in their first home game of the season. FC Dallas dominated the proceedings at the Gillette Stadium, but the home side defended well, and Carles Gil’s lone goal in the first-half stoppage time was enough for them to seal the three points.

When it looked like things were back on track, the Revs let slip of their lead and lost to Real Salt Lake last weekend.

They were 1-0 up at halftime, thanks to Emmanuel Boateng’s goal in injury time, before Jozy Altidore doubled their lead just after the hour mark.

Things looked set to end well for the Revs with 13 minutes to go, but the away side stunned the home crowd with three late goals.

Sergio Córdova and Justen Glad pulled the game back on level terms before Tate Schmitt scored deep into stoppage time to win it for RSL. That kind of implosion is not a good sign for the Revs, who were deemed pre-season favorites but seem half-baked at the moment.
