  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Despite a rotation of healthy bodies across the back line, the Revs' defense has been stingy, posting five clean sheets in eight games.
  • Both teams will be stretched this week, with New England playing New York and Salt Lake playing Montreal on Saturday. Both of New England's games are at home, while RSL will be away from Rio Tinto Stadium for its pair of matches.
  • RSL's Joao Plata is coming off a two-assist effort in the club's 2-0 victory over Vancouver Saturday night.
  • RSL is 7-4-4 all-time against New England, including a 3-2-2 record at Gillette Stadium. The club is 4-0-1 in the teams' last five meetings.
