RECENT FORM VS. NEW YORK RED BULLS

Wednesday night's battle at Red Bull Arena will be the 76th regular-season meeting - and 88th meeting in all competitions - between the New England Revolution and New York Red Bulls, whose rivalry goes all the way back to MLS' inaugural 1996 season.

New England is unbeaten against the Red Bulls in four meetings in all competitions since the start of 2019, going 2-0-2 in that span. Most recently these two sides squared off in August at Gillette Stadium, where the Revs came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw.

In regular-season play, home-field advantage has historically played a large role in recent years as the Revs have won five of the last seven meetings (5-1-1) in Foxborough, while the Red Bulls have been triumphant in nine of their 11 matchups at Red Bull Arena (0-9-2). Last time these two squared off in New Jersey the Revs came from behind thanks to Gustavo Bou's calm finish inside the far post to take a hard-fought point against their longtime rivals.

The Revs are 2-1-1 in their past four games since mid-October, most recently coming off a 1-1 draw at Nashville SC. New England currently sits at 6th place in the East with 29 points. Meanwhile, the Red Bulls are coming off their third straight draw and sit three points back of the Revs at 7th place in the East (26 points).

With potential for New England to punch their ticket to the postseason for the second consecutive year with a win or draw on Wednesday night over the Red Bulls, this will be a must-see battle. 

Overall Record vs. Red Bulls: 31-27-17
Road Record vs. Red Bulls: 8-21-9

Last meeting at Gillette Stadium: Revs 1, Red Bulls 1 (August 29, 2020)
Last meeting at Red Bull Arena: Revs 1, Red Bulls 1 (August 17, 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.
