RECENT FORM VS. ATLANTA UNITED FC

Saturday's showdown will be the second between the Revs and Atlanta this season after the sides played to a 2-2 draw at Mercedes-Benz Stadium back in mid-May. The since-departed Adam Buksa scored both of New England's goals that afternoon as the Revs extended their unbeaten run in the series to three games (2-0-1) after winning both matchups during their record-setting 2021 campaign.

Atlanta will be in desperate need of three points this weekend as they currently sit two points back of the playoff places with two games remaining, while the four teams directly in front of them all have a game in hand. The Five Stripes have kept their postseason hopes alive by going 2-0-1 over their last three games, including a road win in Orlando, part of a stretch in which they've taken points from four of their last six road games.

The Revs are similarly on the outside looking in at the playoffs, though their position is even more tenuous. Three straight losses have dropped the Revs to 11th in the Eastern Conference, four points back of the playoff line and chasing multiple teams with a game in hand. New England will need to win their last two games (Saturday vs. Atlanta and a Decision Day visit to Chicago) and get plenty of help in order to reach the playoffs for a fourth straight year.

It's an afternoon home finale and the last chance to see the Revs in Foxborough in 2022, so get to Gillette Stadium on Saturday and cheer on the Revolution one more time.

Overall Record vs. Atlanta: 2-5-3

SHOW YOUR COLORS

The Revs will be sporting their primary kit, “The Liberty.” 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.
