Get to know who the Red Bulls will be playing in their upcoming match with The Other Side:

How They’re Doing

The Revolution are rolling heading into their match against New York on Saturday. New England is unbeaten in its last seven games and ranks third in the Eastern Conference.

During their streak, the Revolution have recorded a total of 16 goals, helping them earn three wins and four draws since May 27.

Most recently, New England played to a 2-2 draw at FC Cincinnati, becoming the first visiting team to register a point at TQL Stadium this season.

New England has been a mainstay at the top of the standings all season, recording 37 points through 20 games. The club is third in the league with 35 goals scored led by midfielder Carles Gil, who is tied for the team lead with seven goals. He also has a team-best nine assists, tied for second most in MLS.

Head-to-Head History

Saturday will be the 95th all-time matchup between New York and New England. The Red Bulls have faced the Revolution more than ever other team in the league than D.C. United.

The Revolution have a slight advantage in the lifetime series, earning 40 wins over New York since the league’s inaugural season in 1996. The Red Bulls have won 32 of the teams’ matches, and the clubs have drawn 20 times across all competitions.

The two clubs have yet to faceoff this season. Last time the teams met, the Red Bulls came out on top, 2-1. In the match, New York earned a come-from-behind win after New England took an early 1-0 lead.

Player to Watch: Forward Gustavo Bou

With Gil out on Saturday night due to yellow card accumulation, the Revolution will need offense to come from elsewhere on the field. That’s where forward Gustavo Bou comes into play.

Bou, a native of Entre Ríos, Argentina, has been a member of the club since 2019, totaling 41 all-time goals in 92 games played.

This season, Bou has started nine of his 11 games played, scoring four goals and recording two assists.

In the Revolution’s match at FC Cincinnati, Bou netted his fourth tally of the season. Throughout the match, he had three scoring attempts to add to his total of 15 in the club’s last five matches. His involved performance earned him a spot on the MLS Team of the Matchday for matchday 22.

With New England’s top offensive talent on the sidelines, the club will need Bou to step up to the challenge and produce if it wants to score on a Red Bull’s defense that has been lockdown at home.
