RECENT FORM VS. NASHVILLE SC
The Revs captured their first-ever victory over Nashville SC earlier this season, Gustavo Bou's second-half goal lifting New England to a 1-0 win at Gillette Stadium on March 18. That result evened the brief all-time series (dating back to 2020) as each side has won once to go along with a trio of draws. This will be just the third trip to Nashville for the Revs, who've gone 0-1-1 on their two previous visits, but their first-ever journey to GEODIS Park, which opened last May. Originally scheduled for August 20, this match was moved to October 14 when Nashville SC advanced to the Leagues Cup Final.
Carles Gil earned MLS Team of the Matchday honors with his team-leading 10th and 11th goals of the season last weekend at Exploria Stadium, but it wasn't enough as the Revs (14-8-10, 52 pts.) suffered a 3-2 loss to Orlando City SC. New England have now lost back-to-back league games for the first time since May and sit fifth in the Eastern Conference standings, but they remain in control of the battle for third place, as a pair of victories in their final two games would see them leapfrog both Columbus and Philadelphia. In order to do so, they'll need to snap an 11-game winless run away from home as this weekend's trip to Nashville will be the Revs' final road game of the regular season.
Nashville (12-10-10, 46 pts.) has also clinched a playoff spot and can finish no lower than seventh in the East, though they could still climb higher with the right results. It's been a bit of a struggle for Nashville since making a run to the Leagues Cup Final in August, as they've won just once in eight games (1-2-5) since resuming MLS action while scoring just five goals in the process. In fact, Nashville enters this matchup having been shut out in three straight games, and with just one goal in their last three home games at GEODIS Park.
Decision Day on October 21 will see the Revs host the Philadelphia Union at Gillette Stadium, and what happens on Saturday night in Nashville will go a long way to determining exactly what the Revs are playing for in that regular season finale.
Overall Record vs. Nashville: 1-1-3
