These sides have been difficult to separate since New York City FC entered the league as an expansion team in 2015, with the Revs holding a slight edge in the all-time series, 10-8-7. That includes a pair of draws in both meetings last year - 1-1 at Gillette Stadium in April, and 0-0 at Yankee Stadium in June - giving New England a modest three-game unbeaten run in this series (1-0-2) dating back to late in the 2022 campaign. But their most memorable meeting, of course, came in the 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs, when NYCFC eliminated the record-setting Revs in a penalty shootout en route to a championship.

Eliminated from Concacaf Champions Cup at the quarterfinal stage with a 5-2 loss to Club América on Tuesday night at Estadio Azteca, the Revs can now turn 100 percent of their focus to league play. After a slow start on that front, New England has responded with positive results in each of the last two games while conceding just a single goal, picking up a 1-1 draw with Chicago Fire FC and a 1-0 win over Charlotte FC. Those two games wrapped up a three-game league homestand for the Revs, who'll now be looking to carry that form onto the road.

Saturday night's hosts are off to a similarly slow start in 2024, winning just once in their first seven games to sit just one point above the Revs in the Eastern Conference. Nick Cushing's side has recovered a bit in recent weeks after losing three straight to begin the season, going 1-1-2 in their last four to rack up their first points of the campaign. That includes a 2-1 win over Toronto FC and a 1-1 draw with Atlanta United FC in their last two home games.

This weekend's visit to the Bronx begins a stretch in which the Revs will play four of their next five league games on the road, including additional trips to visit Toronto FC, Chicago Fire FC, and the New York Red Bulls in the span of a month.

Saturday night the Revs will wear their "Defiance" kit, which will serve as the team's community uniform once again for the 2024 MLS season.

The "Defiance" kit features a white jersey and red shorts, with red socks and red trim along the shoulder and sleeves. The shirt's design is punctuated by a bold red "strikethrough" across the chest that embodies New England's famous spirit of positive defiance. Revolution is the ultimate act of defiance, and the club's new kit honors that resilient spirit that sparked the American Revolution, laid the foundation for our country, and has resonated throughout the New England region for centuries.
