RECENT FORM VS. PHILADELPHIA UNION
This will be the second meeting between the Revs and Union this year after Philadelphia capitalized on a pair of New England red cards – including one early in the first half – en route to a 2-0 win in the season opener back on March 3 at Talen Energy Stadium.
That was the Union’s fourth win over the Revs in the last five regular-season meetings, all via shutout and all by multiple goals. New England’s only victory in that span was a 3-0 triumph in the most recent meeting at Gillette Stadium last July.
Separated by just two points in the Eastern Conference standings and battling for a coveted playoff spot, these sides will meet again in just two weeks when the Revs will make their second visit of the season to Talen Energy Stadium.
