With just four matches remaining in the regular season, Tuesday night, New England Revolution will visit the Houston Dynamo FC at PNC Stadium. New England meets Houston for the first time since June 29, 2019, when the Revolution registered a 2-1 win in Foxborough. The club’s last trip to Houston came in March 2018, a 2-0 win for New England. The Revolution are unbeaten in the last seven meetings with Houston, going 6-0-1 since the team’s last loss to the Dynamo in 2014.
Saturday afternoon New England fell to the New York Red Bulls, 2-1. The Revolution took a 1-0 lead behind midfielder Tommy McNamara’s fourth goal of the season, before the Red Bulls came from behind to claim all three points. McNamara, who played for Houston from 2019-20 before joining the Revolution, has reached the scoresheet in six of the Revolution’s last eight games, with three goals and four assists since August 6. McNamara’s next goal will match his career high of five.
The New England Revolution are sitting three points behind Columbus (41 pts.) for the seventh and final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.
With a win Tuesday night, Sporting Director and Head Coach Bruce Arena will become the first coach in MLS history to reach 250 regular season victories.
