RECENT FORM VS. INTER MIAMI CF
Saturday’s game will be only the third-ever match between the New England Revolution and Inter Miami CF since the Floridian expansion side began its first campaign in the league in 2020.
The first meeting between these teams took place in July 2021 at DRV PNK Stadium, where New England steamrolled Miami en route to a 5-0 win. The Revs’ attack exploded in the first half with four goals, as the team finished with braces from both Arnór Traustason and Adam Buksa, as well as an additional tally from former Revs forward Teal Bunbury.
Coincidentally, those three points against Miami in July first pushed the Revolution into the lead in the Supporters' Shield race, and the team never turned back. For the following three months, New England maintained and advanced their lead to claim the No. 1 spot last season as the Supporters' Shield winners.
However, in their rematch during the regular season finale in Foxborough, Miami changed the narrative and claimed a 1-0 win over the Supporters' Shield winners directly before their Shield lifting ceremony.
A new page is turned between these teams in 2022. However, this matchup will still be heated because both of these squads are in dire need of three points.
Miami is 0-4-1 (one point) through their first five games and is still searching for their first win of the season. The Floridian side is coming off a 3-1 home loss to the Houston Dynamo, which brought their tally of conceded goals through the first five games to 13.
Meanwhile, the Revs are coming off an unfortunate 1-0 loss at Gillette Stadium, falling to their longtime rivals the New York Red Bulls. This keeps New England on four points through their first five MLS regular season games (1-3-1). It was the Revs’ fourth straight setback in all competitions after falling 3-1 in Charlotte, N.C., two week priors, preceded by a 3-0 loss to Pumas in the Quarterfinals of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League and a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Real Salt Lake at home in mid-March.
As the Revs look to snap their losing streak with three points on the road against Miami, this will be a showdown that you won’t want to miss.

SHOW YOUR COLORS
The Revs will be sporting their new primary kit, “The Liberty,” on Saturday afternoon in Miami. The bespoke pattern is inspired by Boston’s Freedom Trail, a walking trail through the heart of Boston which passes 16 historical sites from the American Revolution – which gives a nod to the club name. This sleek new look will be paired with blue shorts, conveying a defiant, bold and strong look.
The club is reverting to blue shorts for the first time since 2013 to complement “The Liberty.” This is to convey a bold and strong one-color look, in keeping with the New England’s defiant spirit while also enabling the new logo the chance to shine in its first time on a kit.
