Two clubs from opposite sides of the country -- and on opposite sides of the red line in the MLS standings -- square off Saturday in Foxborough, Mass., as the New England Revolution host the Colorado Rapids.The Revolution (6-12-9, 27 points) are winless in their last four matches (0-3-1) and the skid has left them in eighth place in the Eastern Conference, five points behind sixth-place DC United for the final playoff spot in the conference. The blame falls on the offense as the Revolution have been shut four straight times. The scoreless streak is at 362 minutes, the longest in the clubs 21-year history.The Rapids (11-4-10, 43 points) are tied for second in the Western Conference, though they have two games in hand relative to Real Salt Lake, which also has 43 points. The Rapids lost to Real Salt Lake in their last match for only their second setback since April 9.The Revolution won the only match between the two squads last season, a 2-0 victory in Colorado -- their first there since 2002. The Rapids havent won at Gillette Stadium since 2010.The biggest difference between the two clubs this year has been defensive. In two more games, New England has scored one more goal (29) than Colorado (28), but the Revolution have allowed more than twice as many goals (47-22).New England will be without two players (Je-Vaughn Watson and Kei Kamara with Jamaica and Sierra Leone, respectively), who are away on international duty. Colorado will be short five players (Tim Howard and Jermaine Jones, United States; Shkelzen Gashi, Albania; Marco Pappa, Guatemala; and Mekeil Williams, Trinidad & Tobago).Wholesale Air Jordan . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses.

Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium.Centuries from Joe Burns and Steve Smith saw Australia gain the upper hand on day two of the second Test against New Zealand at Christchurch. Even though Brendon McCullum blasted the fastest ever Test century off just 54 balls on day one, the tourists were still able to bowl New Zealand out for 370 and opener Burns and skipper Smith shared a mammoth stand of 289 to guide their side to 363-4 - a deficit of just seven.Burns, who made 170, was imperious in going to his third Test century and highest score while world No 1 batsman Smith (138) continues to scale new heights as he struck a 10th ton in his last 32 innings.The pair were brought together in the fourth over of the day after Usman Khawaja (24) edged Trent Boult to first slip. The left-hander pushed at a delivery outside off stump and guided the ball straight into the hands of McCullum.That made it 67-2 and New Zealand thought they had the Australians 77-3 when Burns was given out caught behind off a rising delivery from Matt Henry with his score on 35.However, Burns reviewed the decision straight away, with replays showing the ball flicked his bicep and the dismissal was overturned.And it was all Australia from there as they made New Zealands attack toil on a flat wicket.There were no further scares for Burns as he brought up his century, which contained 12 fours, off 191 balls.Look back at Brendon McCullums historic century from day one Smith survived a run-out scare on 42, where a direct hit from Henry Nicholls would have sent him back to the pavilion, and also took a nasty blow to the helmet before tea but he reached three figures off 195 balls when steering a wide delivery down to third man for his 12th boundary.ddddddddddddBoth men continued serenely after reaching their landmarks, with Burns passing 150 for the first time in his career before his 321-ball vigil came to an end when he hooked Neil Wagner to square leg.Smith followed in identical fashion in Wagners following over but Australia saw it out to the close without further damage.Watch live coverage of day three from Christchurch live on Sky Sports 2 from 9.30pm.
