RECENT FORM VS. NASHVILLE SC
Friday night's clash will be the second and final meeting between the Revs and Nashville SC in the 2020 regular season. It will also be their first-ever meeting in the Music City at Nissan Stadium. However, New England and Nashville did meet a little more than two weeks ago in Foxborough, where the Revs couldn't break through despite outshooting the visitors, 17-3, finishing in a scoreless draw.
Nashville will be on short rest after claiming a 3-0 win over FC Dallas on Tuesday night at Nissan Stadium, a result which moved the expansion side to 4-0-3 in their last seven home games and 5-2-5 overall since late August. Meanwhile, the Revs will look to bounce back from a 2-1 home loss to the Philadelphia Union as they return to the road, where they've found success with five wins in their last six games.
This showdown is another classic six-pointer, as the 5th-place Revs (7-5-7, 28 pts.) currently sit just four points points ahead of 8th-place Nashville (6-6-6, 24 pts.) in the race for playoff seeding in the Eastern Conference.
As both teams look to make history at Nissan Stadium on Friday by securing the first-ever win in their series history, it will be a game that you won’t want to miss.
Overall Record vs. Nashville: 0-0-1
Road Record vs. Nashville: 0-0-0
Last Meeting at Gillette Stadium: Revs 0, Nashville 0 (October 3, 2020)

SHOW YOUR COLORS
On Friday night the Revs will be sporting "The Original," New England's primary kit designed as a nod to the club's original 1996 look, as Major League Soccer and the Revs continue their milestone 25th season. The sleek white stripe across the jersey echoes the angled stripes across the '96 kit, while the blue top is complemented by red shorts similar to those worn by the Revolution's first-ever squad.
You can own "The Original" by picking one up at the Gillette Stadium ProShop, or by ordering online HERE.
