Revolution 0, Sounders 0: Points shared after quiet affair

Not much to say about this one...

MLS: Seattle Sounders at New England Revolution Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Revolution drew the Seattle Sounders 0-0 in a game that had two shots on target.

The first half was quiet, as neither side produced much on the attacking end. The Sounders led the way with three shots (versus the Revs’ two), but none of the attempts were on frame.

The final minutes did provide some fireworks as the game got a bit chippy. In the 41st minute, Diego Fagundez earned a yellow card for fouling Cristian Roldan. Nicolás Lodeiro was disciplined a minute later for his tackle on Kelyn Rowe.

Head coach Brad Friedel made one change at halftime, replacing Claude Dielna with Gabriel Somi. The captain was forced to exit early because he wasn’t feeling well.

Friedel made his second sub in the 56th minute when Juan Agudelo entered for Scott Caldwell. Agudelo went wide while Rowe shifted into the middle. Clint Dempsey and Alex Roldan would later come on for Seattle.

The game remained tight despite the subs. The ball often moved left to right, as both teams looked to find an opening. In the 73rd minute, Lodeiro had the game’s first shot on frame when he tried to beat Matt Turner from the halfway line.

Andrew Farrell had a chance to be the hero when he sent in a cross in the 90th minute. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei was there to smoother the threat.

The game finished without a goal, as the Revs will now turn their attention to the LA Galaxy.
