MATCH PREVIEW: Revolution II Host Home Opener against Carolina Core FC on Sunday Afternoon


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (March 30, 2024) – New England Revolution II (0-1-0; 0 pts.) will host its home opener against Carolina Core FC (0-1-1; 2 pts.) on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. The match kicks off at 3:00 p.m. ET with Josh Tolle calling the action on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV.

New England will play against Carolina, entering its first year in MLS NEXT Pro in 2024, for the first time in Revolution II history. New England was dominant on its home field at Gillette Stadium last season, posting an 8-1-5 record in Foxborough with points in 13 of its 14 home contests. On the other side, Carolina remains in search of its first victory in MLS NEXT Pro following a 4-0 loss to Atlanta United 2 last weekend.

Revolution II fell in its season opener, 2-1, to Philadelphia Union II on Sunday. Forward Alex Monis, one of Revolution II’s offseason acquisitions, highlighted his club debut with a goal-scoring performance. Monis carried Revolution II’s attack with three shots, converting on Marcos Dias’ assist for the goal. Dias aims to build on a productive 2023 campaign, when the Brazilian midfielder netted eight goals to rank second on the team in scoring.

Alongside Monis, four additional Revolution II players logged their club debuts in the team’s Starting XI, including Hesron Barry, Andrej Bjelajac, Cristiano Oliveria, and Damario McIntosh. Oliveria and McIntosh, both Revolution Academy products, are the 30th and 31st MLS NEXT competitors to debut professionally with Revolution II.

Goalkeeper Max Weinstein led New England on the defensive end of the pitch, limiting Philadelphia’s attack with a five-save performance. The Revolution Academy product and Vermont native registered 24 saves over six games played in net in 2023.
