Sounders FC v. New England Revs, preview & broadcast info

Sounders FC at New England Revolution – September 4, 2010 at 4:30p.m. PT at Gillette Stadium; Foxborough, Mass.

Playing with a combination of grit and flair, the Seattle Sounders FC looks to further boost its postseason aspirations as it travels 2,500 miles to the east to Foxborough, Mass. on Saturday, to face the New England Revolution at 4:30 p.m. PT.

On Wednesday night, Nate Jaqua scored twice and Steve Zakuani supplied two assists as the Sounders FC advanced to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final with a 3-1 victory over Chivas USA in the semifinal.

The Rave Green will continue its bid to repeat as Cup champions when it hosts the Columbus Crew in the Open Cup Final on October 5 on the Xbox Pitch at Qwest Field.

Over the past two months since beginning Open Cup play, Sounders FC (9-8-5, 32 points in league; 12-10-7 overall) has been on domestic tear, losing only once in 11 games.

After coming from behind to beat the Chicago Fire, 2-1, at home last week Sounders FC rides a franchise-best seven-game unbeaten (5-0-2) streak into New England. The 3-0 win over the Revolution on June 5 matched the biggest victory margin for the club. The Revs (6-12-3, 21 points) have lost three in a row but are 5-4-2 at home. New England lost at home to Monarcas Morelia, 2-1, in the SuperLiga final on Wednesday.

Seattle’s surge to begin the second half of the season has propelled it into the second of four wild card slots. Eight teams qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs: the first two teams in each division and the teams with the next four best point totals.

Seattle returns home on September 9 to play reigning MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake in a nationally televised contest on the Xbox Pitch at Qwest Field.
