Get to know who the Red Bulls will be playing in their upcoming matchup.
How they’re doing
New England currently finds themselves in a dogfight for a playoff spot.
After a Supporters Shield and a record-breaking point total during the 2021 season, the Revolution fell flat to begin their 2022 campaign, only registering four points in their first six matches.
They righted the ship, though, starting in May, where they went unbeaten in 10 matches. That run brought them back into contention for a spot in the MLS playoffs.
In their last match, they took it to NYCFC in a 3-0 win at Gillette Stadium on September 5th.
With 93 matches between the two clubs across all competitions, this is the second-longest running matchup in New York’s club history.
New England owns the series with a 40-33-20 record, but the Red Bulls have dominated the series at home with a 25-12-10 mark.
Since 2010, the Red Bulls have only lost at home to the Revolution twice.
Last time out, New York left Gillette Stadium with three points courtesy of a late own goal forced by Ashley Fletcher. That was the Red Bulls’ first away win in the series since 2017.
Player to Watch- Midfielder Carles Gil
Carles Gil has followed up his 2021 MLS MVP award with another stellar season for the Revolution.
He currently leads the league with 89 key passes, with the next closest total in MLS being 72. He is also second in the league with 13 assists.
In his four seasons in New England, he’s totaled 20 goals and 47 assists in 97 appearances.
He’s been one of the driving forces of the offense since he arrived, and he’ll be the one to watch on Saturday.
