FC Cincinnati hit the road for the first weekend of July, set to take on the New England Revolution on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
Let’s break down this matchup, by the numbers.
The New England Revolution enter Sunday’s matchup on a 9-game unbeaten run. That’s the longest active streak in MLS, and no team in the league has gone more than 10 straight this season.
Carles Gil leads MLS in key passes with 55. The 2021 Landon Donovan MLS MVP has been one of the most influential players in the league again this season. Second in the league in key passes? Luciano Acosta. The FC Cincinnati captain has 47 key passes, and leads the league with nine assists to go along with six goals.
FC Cincinnati and New England are tied for fifth in MLS with 27 goals this season. Only LAFC (35), Montréal (32), NYCFC (31) and Austin (31) have scored more. The Portland Timbers and FC Dallas have also scored 27 goals.
Should he play on Sunday, FC Cincinnati defender Ray Gaddis will make his 20th all-time appearance against New England. That would mark his most against any opponent, as he has currently played 19 games against both New England and CF Montréal. He has played more minutes against New England (1,649) than he has any other individual side (2nd most, CF Montréal – 1,633).
