Game Preview: New England Revolution at Montreal Impact

May 17, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New England Revolution News Release

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution (3-8-2, 11 pts.) will face the Montreal Impact (6-5-2, 20 pts.) on Saturday, May 18 at Stade Saputo. The match kicks off at 1:00 p.m. ET and will be 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 contest airs locally on the radio with 98.5 The Sports Hub broadcasting the action in English and 1260 AM Nossa Radio providing Portuguese commentary.

Saturday's match marks the second and final meeting with the Impact this season, after Montreal claimed a 3-0 win over the Revs at Gillette Stadium in the teams' first meeting this season on April 24. Interim Head Coach Mike Lapper will be on the sidelines for New England for a second match. He led the club to a 3-1 win over San Jose last Saturday, courtesy of goals from Juan Agudelo, Cristian Penilla, and Carles Gil. Lapper will continue to serve in the interim capacity until newly appointed Sporting Director and Head Coach Bruce Arena takes his place on the New England bench.

On Saturday, Revolution defender Andrew Farrell could potentially make his 200th regular season appearance in MLS, all coming with New England. He would become the eighth player to play in 200 matches in a Revs uniform. Farrell has been one of the league's most reliable players throughout his career, leading all MLS outfield players in minutes (17,538) and games started (197), and ranking third in games played (199), since he entered the league as the first-overall pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.

Following Saturday's match, New England returns to action on Saturday, May 25 for a home meeting with D.C. United. That match begins at 7:30 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium and will be air locally on NBC Sports Boston, 98.5 The Sports Hub, and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
