FC Cincinnati hit the road to do battle with the New England Revolution on Saturday, in a match that is sure to be a test for the Orange and Blue. The Revs come into this one top of the table in the Eastern Conference and have seen success at their home venue, Gillette Stadium, this season. Let’s break down the matchup, by the numbers.
One goal was all that separated these two teams last time they met, with a 70’ goal from Adam Buska giving the win to the Revs. Chances abounded for both squads in the match, but the Revs sole finish landed them on top.
FC Cincinnati are a tough team to beat at the moment, as they have picked up four straight results. The four-match unbeaten run is tied for the longest in the club’s MLS history, a feat the orange and blue have achieved twice already this season.
Luciano Acosta is a lethal goalscoring threat year-round, but his form in the month of August has been stellar throughout his career. The Argentine has scored eight of his 28 MLS goals in August, and he will have two more chances to add to that total, including Saturday night.
New England Revolution currently sit atop the Eastern Conference and atop the Supporters Shield standings with 46 points. The Revolution have been a dominant team at home (8-1-1), posting the second-best point total at home and the most wins of any team in MLS.
