Major League Soccer begins its 12th day of the championship with the leader of the Eastern Conference, the New England Revolution, visiting the Columbus Crew SC, this Saturday, July 3, 2021, at the Lower.com Field Stadium, in the city of Columbus, USA. Both teams have had an excellent start to the season, so adding 3 points in this game would help them continue to reap the victory necessary to meet their primary objectives this season. We’ll see if Columbus maintains the leadership of the Eastern Conference of the MLS or if Columbus manages to approach the first places of the table.
How do New England and Columbus arrive?
New England Revolutions are currently the Eastern Conference MLS leaders, with an excellent record of 7 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses in 11 games. This journey has a goal difference of +5 with 18 goals in favor and 13 against. Although the team has been excellent offensively, they must improve the defensive aspect a lot since, as we can see, they have an average of more than 1 goal conceded per game in the 11 games played to date.
After losing on the road to FC Dallas, New England comes to this game, the team that occupies the 11th position in the MLS Western Conference, with a result of 1-2.

On the other hand, we have the Columbus Crew SC team.

Columbus has been one of the teams that have scored the fewest goals (9 goals) in the championship. Still, the team has received the fewest goals (7 goals), so we can say that its defense has done excellent work and has had a significant impact on its team’s victories.
After a goalless draw against Austin FC, Columbus comes to this game, one of the worst current teams in all of MLS.

Betting line for New England vs. Columbus Crew MLS Matchday 12.
The game between New England and the Columbus Crew will be between two teams with a very different structure. New England is a very high-scoring team, but they don’t have an excellent defense, so if they work their defense well, they could get better results in the remainder of the season. While Columbus has the best defense in the tournament, their offense has been off; if they can get their forwards up to the scoring pace, we are confident that they will be one of the finalist teams in the championship. That said, our winner token for this match is for Columbus Crew SC.
