July 19, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New England Revolution News Release

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution (7-8-6, 27 pts.) will travel to Ohio for a meeting with MLS expansion side FC Cincinnati (5-14-2, 17 pts.), on Sunday, July 21 at Nippert Stadium. The match kicks off at 6:00 p.m. ET, televised locally on NBC Sports Boston with Brad Feldman and Paul Mariner calling the action. Authenticated subscribers may also stream the match on and on the NBC Sports app. The match airs locally on the radio with 98.5 The Sports Hub broadcasting the action in English and 1260 AM Nossa Radio providing Portuguese commentary.

New England's summer surge continued on Wednesday evening, when the Revs dispatched Vancouver Whitecaps FC, 4-0, at Gillette Stadium to extend its unbeaten run to nine games, the club's longest streak since 2014. In his first start with the Revolution, newly acquired striker Gustavo Bou opened his MLS account with an incredible right-footed volley to close the first half. The Revs put the game out of reach late in the second half thanks to Diego Fagundez's first goal of the year, Carles Gil's sixth MLS tally, and Teal Bunbury's seventh goal in his last eight overall games. Bunbury extended his scoring streak to four matches, tying his personal best set in 2018.

Following Sunday's match, New England will return to action on Saturday, July 27 for the club's first of two regular season meetings with Orlando City SC at Gillette Stadium. The match kicks off at 7:00 p.m. ET and will air on NBC Sports Boston, and locally on the radio on 98.5 The Sports Hub and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
