SANDY, Utah (Friday, April 8, 2011) – Two of the five remaining undefeated teams in Major League Soccer’s 2011 campaign will go head-to-head this Saturday, April 9, when the New England Revolution (1-0-3, 6 pts.) welcome Real Salt Lake (2-0-0, 6 pts.) for a East vs. West showdown at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. Kickoff for the cross-conference affair is set for 5:30 p.m. MT, and fans all across the Beehive State can watch the Claret-and-Cobalt’s first appearance of the season on local CBS affiliate KUTV2 [2.1 over-the-air, Comcast 2 & 654 (HD)].

Real Salt Lake will be looking to extend its ongoing 16-match regular season undefeated streak (8-0-8), which stands alone as the third-longest in MLS regular season history, now three games behind 19-game runs by FC Dallas (2010) – which RSL ended in Sandy last October – and the Columbus Crew (2004-05). The stretch includes an eight-game undefeated run on the road (2-0-6), which is currently tied for the fourth-longest away unbeaten streak in League annals. On the opposite side of the field, New England will attempt to justify its surprising early-season perch atop the Eastern Conference standings, its three draws to date all coming against Western Conference opposition (@ LA, v. POR and @ VAN).

Real Salt Lake enjoys a slim advantage in its regular season series against New England, its 5-4-3 overall mark against Saturday’s opponent aided by a respectable 2-2-2 record in games contested at Gillette Stadium. Real Salt Lake tasted victory after both meetings with the Revs in 2010, following a 5-0 pasting of New England on July 2 at Rio Tinto Stadium with a gritty 2-1 triumph in Foxborough last Oct. 2. In that contest, goals from Nat Borchers and Álvaro Saborío allowed the Claret-and-Cobalt to register their first-ever road victory on an artificial turf surface, moving the Utah side’s away record on FieldTurf to 1-7-5.
