The New England Revolution return to action Wednesday night when they host the Montreal Impact at Gillette Stadium.
The Revolution, who are 0-1-4 at home, will look to earn their first win at Gillette in nearly a year! The last time the Revs won at home was on September 29th, 2019 when they beat NYCFC 2-0 to clinch a spot in the 2019 MLS Cup playoffs.
Thierry Henry and the Impact will look to learn from their last match, where they took a 4 – 1 loss against the Philadelphia Union.
Matt Polster will be available for Wednesday’s game against the Impact after serving a one-game suspension for getting two yellow cards in the Revs’ match against the Chicago Fire.
Midfielders Carles Gil and Luis Caicedo are unavailable for Wednesday’s match as they recover from their respective injuries.
The Impact will be without forward Romell Quioto. Quioto was initially booked with a yellow card in the 13th minute after elbowing Union defender Mark McKenzie in the head. After a VAR review, Quioto was given a red card for the offense.

Montreal will also be without midfielders Steeven Saba, Mathieu Choinière, and Ballou Tabla, who are recovering from their respective injuries.
A win for the Revolution would be huge as the Revs prepare for the upcoming MLS Cup playoffs. The Revs currently sit in 7th place with 15 points. They trail first-place Columbus by 12 points. The Revs will have the opportunity to gain 33 more points throughout the remaining eleven games of the 2020 MLS regular season.
Wednesday’s game will now kickoff at 5:00 PM EST.
