FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution (4-10-1; 15 pts.) defeated New York Red Bulls 1-0, (8-4-5; 29 pts.) on Saturday night in front of 29,288 fans at Gillette Stadium. New England midfielder Emmanuel Boateng scored the winning goal in the 81 st minute, his first tally of the 2024 campaign, with assists from Carles Gil and Xavier Arreaga. Goalkeeper Aljaž Ivačič recorded his 10 th career clean sheet and second with the Revolution.

The Revolution controlled the run of play for much of the first half with 62 percent of the possession, threatening the New York end through clever combination play in the midfield between Gil and forward Dylan Borrero, who logged his fourth straight start. The pair combined for three shots in the first half, while Gil recorded three of his season-high seven key passes in the first half. The Revolution captain’s 55 key passes are second most in MLS through Matchday 19.

Deep into the second half, New England broke the deadlock when Boateng slotted home a cross from Gil with his first touch, beating Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara for the game’s lone tally. The Ghanaian’s goal gave Gil his 24th game-winning assist, extending his club record. Center back Xavier Arreaga, making his seventh consecutive start, helped create the opportunity with a through ball to Gil as the Ecuadorian registered his first helper since 2020.

With Arreaga and Dave Romney anchoring the backline ahead of him, Ivačič protected the net with five saves in his sixth start of the season as his record improved to 3-3-0, with two shutouts. On his 31 st birthday, midfielder Matt Polster played all 90 minutes in his 200 th MLS regular season appearance, but will be suspended for next week’s contest against the Vancouver Whitecaps due to yellow card accumulation. Meanwhile, forward Giacomo Vrioni suited up for his 50 th match for New England and had two shots on the night, including a left-footed effort that required a diving save from Meara as it curled inside the far post.

New England continues its two-game homestand next weekend, taking on the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday, June 15 at Gillette Stadium. The 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff airs live on MLS Season Pass on the Apple TV app in English and Spanish. Listen to the Revolution’s local radio calls on 98.5 The Sports Hub (WBZ-FM), with Brad Feldman and Charlie Davies, and on 1260 AM “Nossa Radio USA” in Portuguese.
