Wednesday night, a midweek match for the New England Revolution as they hosted Chicago Fire FC at Gillette Stadium, and played to a 0-0 draw, stretching their unbeaten streak against Chicago to seven games (3-0-4) dating back to August 24, 2019.
Wednesday night was Carles Gil Bobblehead Night. The 2021 MLS MVP Carles Gil netted his sixth goal of the season in Sunday’s match, giving him 19 goal contributions on the year. The 2022 MLS All-Star has reached the scoresheet in four of the last five games, with two goals and two assists.
Before Wednesday night’s game Bruce Arena made three changes to his starting lineup from Sunday’s match against the LA Galaxy. Forward Gustavo Bou made his first start since July 16 in place of Justin Rennicks. Midfielders Maciel and Noel Buck started in place of Christian Makoun and Emmanuel Boateng.
DeJuan Jones, who talked with the media post-game, recorded a career-high 111 touches on the night and completed 93 percent of his passes.
The Revolution will wrap up their three-game homestand on Sunday, September 4, against New York City FC for an 8:00 p.m. ET kickoff at Gillette Stadium.
