RECENT FORM VS. PHILADELPHIA UNION

The New England Revolution and Philadelphia Union have already met twice this year – once in the Round of 16 at the MLS is Back Tournament, and again in a regular-season battle at Gillette Stadium. Now they'll square off for a third time at Subaru Park this Saturday.

Most recently these two sides met just three weeks ago, playing to a scoreless draw at Gillette Stadium. Looking back, the Revs have won just once in their past 11 matches against the Union (1-7-3).
 
The last time the Revolution traveled to Philadelphia they were under previous leadership, and this will be the first visit to this Eastern foe under the guidance of head coach Bruce Arena. 
 
Philadelphia is coming off a 3-0 win over the New York Red Bulls on Sunday night. The Union have gone 3-1-1 since returning to league play in-market in August. Meanwhile, the Revs have gone 2-1-2 over the course of their five games in that span. Philadelphia currently sits second in the East with 18 points, with the Revs four points back sitting in fifth place. With how close these two teams are in the standings, this will be a game that you won't want to miss.

Overall Record vs. Philadelphia: 6-14-6
Road Record vs. Philadelphia 3-9-2

Last Meeting at Gillette Stadium: Revs 0, Union 0  (August 20, 2020)
Last Meeting at Subaru Park: Union 6, Revs 1 (May 4, 2019)

SHOW YOUR COLORS

Break out “The Colonial!"

The Revs will be sporting their sleek secondary kits, which take inspiration from uniforms the colonial generals wore in the Revolutionary War.

These jerseys sport a white front with light blue sides and sleeves, and are tied together with navy blue trim. The light blue sides continue to cover the back of the jersey, topped near the neckline with the classic image of the Flag of New England.

You can own "The Colonial" by visiting the Gillette Stadium Pro Shop, or clicking HERE.
