Our football match prediction:
New England will be aiming to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Philadelphia Union when they take on Colorado Rapids in their first home game of the season. The Revs failed to impress in their opener, but it is well known that they produce much better performances at home than on the travels. New England recorded seven wins in last seven home games of the last season, which is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday's football match. Colorado Rapids were not into action at the weekend and, no doubt, they are eager record a good result on their season debut. The club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the winter, but it remains to be seen if the new signings are going to adapt the new surroundings. Anyhow, seeing that the Revs are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that Brad Friedel's men are going to give fans some cheer this weekend.
