Djordje Petrović has a habit of making the spectacular look routine, and the 23-year-old goalkeeper did it once again on Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, making five saves to keep his sixth clean sheet of the season and help the New England Revolution to a 0-0 draw with New York City FC. Petrović, who finished second in MLS Goalkeeper of the Year voting in 2022 despite arriving midway through the campaign, earned MLS Team of the Matchday honors for his efforts.
The Serbian's first big save arrived in the 23rd minute, Petrović going full stretch to his right and using his top hand to tip wide a curling effort from NYCFC attacker Gabriel Pereira.
Pereira was denied once again in the 59th minute, this time from close range. Santiago Rodríguez slipped Pereira through on goal and the young Brazilian tried to beat Petrović low, but the Revs' goalkeeper got his right hand down to push the effort wide and keep the hosts off the board.
Petrović and the Revs, who have played five of their last six games on the road, will return to Foxborough for three straight home games beginning on Saturday night against Inter Miami CF. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. on Pride Night at Gillette Stadium, and fans can watch in English or Spanish on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV. The local radio call will be available in English on 98.5 The Sports Hub, and in Portuguese on 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
