The New England Revolution owns the title, Underdog, especially after the 2014 MLS regular season. Once New England found their feet after their terrible slump, no team could raise a finger to them. Behind their MLS BEST XI and MVP candidate, Lee Nguyen, the Revolution finds themselves in prime spot to pull an upset against the heavily favored LA Galaxy.

Even with the Revolution losing the only game the two teams played this season, New England fans still have a lot to look forward to. Both New England and LA have dangerous midfields. LA has experience, while New England has talent and youth.

Charlie Davies and Teal Bunbury will play a large role in the Revolutions success during the match. LA will focus most of their attention on shutting down Jermaine Jones and Nguyen through the midfield. If the Galaxy falls asleep for a minute, this Revolution squad can punish them in a heartbeat.

LA is the obvious favorite in this match, but New England has the talent to force an incredible upset and finally claim their first MLS Cup title.
