The New England Revolution travel to Mexico City to take on Pumas UNAM Wednesday night, as the Revs look to hold on to their 3-0 win in Leg 2 and move on to the third round of the CONCACAF Champions League. Here is how Bruce Arena has the Revolution lined up tonight, as both Henry Kessler and Andrew Farrell are out.
New England Revolution lineup vs. Pumas UNAM
GK: EARL EDWARDS JR.
DEF: DEJUAN JONES, JON BELL, OMAR GONZALEZ, BRANDON BYE
MID: MATT POLSTER, ARNÓR TRAUSTASON, SEBASTIAN LLETGET, CARLES GIL
FWD: GUSTAVO BOU, ADAM BUKSA
Starting from the back, Farrell was not able to make the trip to Mexico due to soreness and rest purposes, and Kessler is still out injured. Omar Gonzalez and Jon Bell will start at CB, perhaps a shaky duo.
Arnor Traustason proved to Arena that he deserves the start over Tommy McNamara during the game against RSL most likely. The rest of the lineup stays the same, the striker duo will need to wake up and figure out how to play off of each other like last season.
The Revs go into the match with a 3-0 lead on aggregate, and just need to not allow Pumas cover the distance to advance. The Revs also look to bounce back from their ugly loss where they blew a 2-0 lead in the final 15 minutes vs. Salt Lake.
