On Sunday, the Revolution will conclude its season against the Montreal Impact. On the surface, it’s a meaningless contest; neither the Revs nor the Impact will play past October.
But the Revolution don’t want to end its campaign winless on the road. And the Impact don’t want to end its season on the heels of a five-match losing streak.
Here’s everything you need to know about match 34:
New England: L-W-L-D-W
Chances to Win
Even though Montreal has lost four straight, FiveThirtyEight still gives the club a 51 percent chance of winning. The Revs hold a 26 percent chance of walking away with three points.
Stat that Matters Most
That’s the Revolution’s record in its past 18 road matches. The team has conceded 48 goals over that span.
Even though Antonio Delamea took home Revolution MVP honors, Lee Nguyen has run away as the most productive player on the roster. His 15-goal, 11-assist campaign serves as his most balanced ever, despite earning little acclaim for his efforts. Nguyen has also created 85 chances, 5th most in MLS.
For the Impact, it’s all about Ignacio Piatti, who has found the net 17 times in 27 matches this season. Nacho has received plenty of help from Swiss international Blerim Dzemaili, who has picked up 10 assists while creating two chances per match.
