After their US. Open Cup win on Wednesday, the New England Revolution on Sunday played Atlanta United FC to a 2-2 draw at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Adam Buksa scored two goals for the second time this week as his scoring streak improved to six games in all competitions. Buksa scored in the 30th minute and then in the 55th minute
Buksa has tallied 24 goals from open play since arriving in New England, most in MLS by two since 2020, as he increases his totals to six league goals and 10 in all competitions.
Carles Gil registered an assist for the fourth consecutive league game, the longest streak in MLS this season, and the fifth straight match overall. The Spaniard now has four goals and six assists in his last seven games in all competitions.
During the post game press conference, Revolution Sporting Director and Head Coach Bruce Arena was asked if he feels like things are coming together more in recent games and he said, “Yes and let’s be fair, not our best day. We made some mistakes, obviously, in the game and probably could have done a little better job of protecting the lead in the second half. But the one thing that was a positive at the end of the game, we at least closed the game out and didn’t concede a goal like we’ve done in a number of games this year, so that side of it is positive.”
The Revolution are back on the road next Saturday, May 21 for a rematch with FC Cincinnati at TQL Stadium.
