Game Preview: New England Revolution at Philadelphia Union

May 3, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New England Revolution News Release

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution (2-6-2, 8 pts.) will take on the Philadelphia Union (5-3-2, 17 pts.) on Saturday, May 4 at Talen Energy Stadium. The match kicks off at 7:30 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 NBCSportsBoston.com and on the NBC Sports app. The contest airs locally on the radio with 98.5 The Sports Hub HD2 broadcasting the action in English and 1260 AM Nossa Radio providing Portuguese commentary.

New England will look to build on a dynamic 4-4 away result at Sporting Kansas City last Saturday, which saw first-year Revs striker Juan Fernando Caicedo open his MLS account with two goals inside the game's first 35 minutes. The first goal of the season from Juan Agudelo and DeJuan Jones' first professional tally rounded out the Revs' scoring, as New England held on for one point despite finishing the match with nine men. This weekend, the Revs will aim to snap a four-game winless streak at Philadelphia and claim a victory in Chester, Pa. for the first time since August 2015.

Following Saturday's match, the Revolution will conclude the current three-game road stretch with the season's first of two matchups against the Chicago Fire on Wednesday, May 8 at SeatGeek Stadium. That match will kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Boston, 98.5 The Sports Hub, and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
