New Englad Revolution Vs. Toronto FC: 0-0 Just As Boring As It Sounds

If a game ends scoreless and almost no one was around to see it, can we just pretend it never happened? There were probably more than a few fans of the New England Revolution and Toronto FC who were wondering that very thing as the two struggling teams played to a 0-0 tie in front of an announced crowd of 6,680 people, the lowest of the MLS season.

With the Boston Bruins playing in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, a small crowd was probably to be expected, but the quality of the two teams surely played a factor as well. The Revolution came in having lost four straight, while Toronto FC had not won in their past six. Both teams created some chances, but neither was able to capitalize. Rajko Lekic, who came to the Revolution with so much expectations, missed a wide open chance on goal and has now gone eight straight games without a goal or an assist.

Major League Soccer (Mid)Week 14 Preview, Pick: New England Revolution Vs. Toronto FC

On May 14, the New England Revolution's season seemed to be heading in all the right directions. They had just beaten the Vancouver Whitecaps and had claimed seven points in their last four matches. They had also just added Benny Feilhaber and Rajko Lekic. Instead, their season was just getting ready to head off the rails.

Since that May 14 win, the Revolution have lost four straight -- all by one goal -- and are now the third worst team in the league by Points Per Match. Feilhaber has since been injured and his availability is currently unknown, and Lekic has not scored in his past seven matches. Fortunately for them, they will have a chance to turn that around on Wednesday, when they host Toronto FC.

The Reds are coming off a tie against the Los Angeles Galaxy, their fifth tie in their last six matches. They are also mired in a seven-match winless streak, though. Alan Gordon, coming off a two-goal match against his former team, appears to be healthy again and now has four goals in his past five matches.

Details: Wednesday, 8 p.m. Pick: Toronto FC 1-0.
