New England Revolution

Last updated: Sat 23 March 2019 22:31
In Brief

A tough night against Toronto despite playing very well for much of the match. Still on the hunt for a first league win of the season. Friedel only has Angking out with injury. But Rennicks and Somi are on international duty.

Looking Back

Conceded 3 very disappointing goals. But will feel hard done by with an offside decision going against them.

Carles Gil looks an excellent signing by Friedel and it was his brace in the match which gave them a chance of earning points. His brace makes it 3 goals in 3 games for the Spanish international.

Looking Ahead

Friedel will be targeting a much needed win having not won thus far. New England are looking to avoid a 3rd straight league defeat. Isaac Angking is out with injury.

Junior Caicedo and Andrew Farrell back from injury. Farrell could make his first appearance against FC Cincinnati. Gabriel Somi and Justin Rennicks are away on international duty.

Points of Interest

First meeting between the two clubs. Carles Gil is the only player to score for New England so far this season.

In Brief

Jimmy McLaughlin out injured. Fanendo Adi also expected to miss out. Przemyslav Tyton questionable. Allan Cruz, Kendall Waston, Frankie Amaya, Darren Mattocks and Alvas Powell on international duty

Looking Back

Marked their first home game in the MLS with a convincing display as they beat Portland Timbers 3-0

Have shown improvement in each of the three games played and will now be looking for their first away win

Looking Ahead

Koch will be missing a number of players with Waston, Mattocks, Powell, Amaya and Cruz all called up for international duty

Adi is a fresh concern with the attacker being withdrawn at halftime against Portland with a knock and Koch revealed he will not be available for Sunday

Tyton is also a doubt as he recovers from a hamstring injury while McLaughlin is a long term absentee

Points of Interest

Cincinnati's only previous meeting against New England came in a pre-season friendly last season which had ended in a 1-1 draw
