For the second time in three years, the New England Revolution and Philadelphia Union face off in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals. Tonight's contest serves as a rematch of the 2014 quarterfinals, when the Revs conceded two first-half goals en route to a 2-0 loss.
Unlike the 2014 match, however, the Revs claimed homefield advantage for tonight's tilt, marking the club's first home match in tournament play. The Revs previously won road matches against the Carolina RailHawks (4th Round) and New York Cosmos (Round of 16). Mostly recently, the Revs gutted out a 0-0 regular-season draw against host Real Salt Lake.
The Union, on the other hand, have played every 2016 Open Cup match on its own turf. Earlier in the tournament, the club defeated the Harrisburg City Islanders (4th Round) and New York Red Bulls (Round of 16). Last weekend, a pair of second-half goals helped the Union earn a draw against the Red Bulls in MLS play.
The winner of tonight's fixture will take on the winner of the Chicago Fire-Fort Lauderdale Strikers match, which kicks off at 7:30 PM ET tonight.
Location: Jordan Field, Harvard University, Boston, Mass.
Kick-Off Time: 7:30 PM ET
