Last weekend, the Revolution found themselves particularly busy putting the ball in the back of the net. But if they aren't careful against the Portland Timbers, the script could get flipped post haste on Sunday.

With prospect of facing a Timbers team that's racked up a league-best 12 goals in a few days, Revolution center back Antonio Mlinar Delamea believes the key to getting a result at Portland who'll have potent striker Fanendo Adi tow will boil down to a simple, yet difficult to adopt concept.
