Gameday: #NEvNY


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Welcome to Gillette Stadium, where a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference final between the Red Bulls (3-0-4, 13 points) and Revolution (4-2-2, 14 points) is set for Saturday at 7:30pm.

Saturday’s contest will be the first of three meetings between the longtime conference rivals. They’ll meet again on Jul. 11 at Red Bull Arena and back at Gillette Stadium on Sept. 18.

What’s at stake? The Revolution will be looking to extend their six-game unbeaten run, which has catapulted them into a two-way tie for first place with D.C. United. For the Red Bulls, it’s about getting a result from their third game in eight days, and staying undefeated early on in 2015.

Biggest question: Will Jay Heaps keep the front three of Juan Agudelo, Charlie Davies and Teal Bunbury intact? Though the trio helped send the Revolution to a comprehensive 4-0 win last weekend, Heaps was noncommittal about going with the trio against New York following the Salt Lake game.

Noteworthy: Seven different players have already scored for the Revolution this year.

Weather: Temperatures are in the low-60s with clear skies overhead at Gillette Stadium with kickoff looming.

Referees: Marcos de Oliveira will be the man in the middle for Saturday’s clash, which will be the first match he’s refereed involving the Revolution. Joining de Oliveira will be Jeff Muschik (AR1) and Mark Cahen (AR2) while Alan Kelly will serve as the fourth official.
