RECENT FORM VS. NEW YORK CITY FC

This will be the second and final meeting between the New England Revolution and New York City FC this regular season. These two teams last squared off at Gillette Stadium in late March, when they finished in a hard-fought 2-2 draw.

The sides have split their last seven matches (2-2-3) dating back to 2016, while the Revs have picked up results (one win, two draws) on their five previous trips to Yankee Stadium.

New York City FC currently sit comfortably in third place in the Eastern Conference standings at 48 points, while the Revs are tied for seventh with D.C. United (30 points each) and are looking to move up above the playoff line. With a big six-point swing in the East and an opportunity for both sides to climb up the standings, Wednesday’s midweek clash is extremely important.

Overall Record vs. NYCFC: 4-3-3
Away Record vs. NYCFC: 1-2-2

Last Meeting: Revs 2, NYCFC 2 (March 24, 2018 at Gillette Stadium)
