  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Three Union players, midfielder Gabriel Gomez and Farfan twins Michael and Gabriel, are one yellow card away from an automatic suspension.
  • The teams are meeting for the second time this year. Jack McInerney’s goal in the 90th minute, after Philadelphia’s Freddy Adu and New England’s Saer Sene traded goals, gave Union a 2-1 win at PPL Park.
  • Philadelphia has never lost to New England. The first meeting victory this year was the Union’s third in five games against the Revs; the teams have played to two draws.
  • Jerry Bengtson scored his second goal in Major League Soccer – his first since returning from the Olympic Games – in New England’s 4-3 loss in Columbus. While with the Honduran Olympic team in England, Bengtson scored three goals.
  • Despite scoring six goals in their last two matches, the Revolution are winless since early July, a club record run of nine games.
