Columbus Crew vs. New England Revolution, first leg Eastern Conference semifinals (Lineups)


The Columbus Crew welcomes the New England Revolution to Crew Stadium on Saturday (4 pm ET) in the first leg of their No. 2- vs. No. 3-seed Eastern Conference semifinals matchup.

Two of the hottest teams finishing the regular season, neither side lost a league match to anyone other than Saturday’s opponent since the Montreal Impact dropped the Crew on Aug. 30 (the Revolution last lost to a non-Crew side on Aug. 2).

The Crew took the regular season series by a tally of two games to one, outscoring the Revs 4-3 in the process.

The Crew return to the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2011, while the Revs return to the postseason for a second straight year after taking eventual champions Sporting Kansas City to extra time in the second leg of their conference semifinals matchup in 2013.
