RECENT FORM VS. D.C. UNITED

It's been a little more than a month since the Revs and D.C. squared off at Audi Field, where New England took down the hosts, 2-1, behind goals from Gustavo Bou and Teal Bunbury. Bou opened the scoring in the 26th minute with a strike from distance, before Bunbury – following a 46-minute weather delay – doubled New England’s lead in the 38th minute with a headed goal off a corner kick.

It was the Revs' first-ever victory at Audi Field, where they are 1-1-1 in their three games played at D.C.'s new stadium, and their first victory at any venue in D.C. since July 2013.

These two sides know each other well, as this will be their third meeting this season. They also squared off about two-and-a-half months ago in the group stage of the MLS is Back Tournament – a match that also counted towards the MLS regular-season standings – playing to a 1-1 draw at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

D.C. are winless in their last four games, while the Revs are coming off a galvanizing 3-1 home win over the Montreal Impact. With that three points, New England improved to 5th place in the Eastern Conference with 18 points, which is seven points ahead of D.C., at the bottom of the Eastern Conference in 14th place. As New England look to continue their momentum with another victory, this will be a game that you won't want to miss. 

Overall Record vs. D.C. United: 28-34-15
Away Record vs. D.C. United: 10-24-5

Last Meeting at Gillette Stadium: Revs 1, D.C. 1 (May 25, 2019)
Last Meeting at Audi Field: Revs 2, D.C. 1 (August 25, 2020)

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.
