RECENT FORM VS. NASHVILLE SC
Saturday afternoon's clash will be the first meeting between the Revs and Nashville SC in the 2021 regular season, and only the third match in the opponents' brief history since Nashville SC joined MLS as an expansion side in 2020.
Nashville are still searching for their first win of the 2021 campaign, coming off three straight home draws despite registering a combined 24 shots on target compared to just eight for their three opponents. Meanwhile, last weekend's 2-1 win over Atlanta gives the Revs seven points from their first three games (2-0-1) to put them at No. 1 in the East and tied atop the league standings with the Seattle Sounders.
While the Revs and Nashville have only squared off two times in history, neither side has emerged victorious. In both meetings in 2020 at Gillette Stadium and Nissan Stadium, these matches ended with the two teams taking a point apiece.
The Revs will look to secure their first-ever win over Nashville SC on the road this weekend and continue their reign atop the league in a classic six-point showdown.
Overall Record vs. Nashville: 0-0-2

SHOW YOUR COLORS
On Saturday afternoon the Revs will be sporting "The Original," New England's primary kit designed as a nod to the club's original 1996 look. 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.
