The New England Revolution are in the midst of a three games in eight days stretch. After a draw against Toronto FC on Saturday, the Revs will head into Sporting Park against Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday night.

New England picked up their first-ever win at Sporting Park in 2014, the last time they played there.
What are some important factors to look for, Wednesday? What key numbers and stats should you be keeping an eye on?

9 – Unbeaten in nine-straight games, the Revolution are currently the hottest team in MLS.

3 – Number of games in eight days for New England. They fought to a 1-1 draw with Toronto FC on Saturday. They now play Sporting KC on Wednesday and D.C. United on Saturday.

2 – In just five games with the Revolution, defender London Woodberry has appeared on the MLS Team of the Week twice. Both times, Woodberry assisted on a goal in the game while playing stellar defense.

5 – Wednesday’s match will be the fifth time the Revolution are on a nationally televised game, with ESPN2 providing the broadcast. The locals will play a total of 12 nationally-televised regular season games, including one against the LA Galaxy on May 31.

8 – The Revs scored a combined eight goals en route to a 3-0-0 record against Sporting KC in 2014. Their 3-2 win at Kansas City on Sept. 26 was the first set of three points ever collected by the Foxborough outfit at Sporting Park.

990 – Consecutive minutes played by Andrew Farrell at center back. Farrell has played every minute of every game since making the move from right back to center back full-time in 2015.

22 – With a win on Wednesday, the Revolution will have 22 points, putting them atop the MLS standings.
