New England Revolution and Atlanta United will trade tackles at the Gillette Stadium on Sunday, with three points on the line in the MLS Eastern Conference.

The hosts come into this game off the back of a 1-0 victory at home to D.C. United. An own goal by Brendan Hines-Ike at the start of the second half was enough to give the Revs the victory.

Atlanta United suffered a debilitating 3-0 home defeat to fellow MLS side Philadelphia Union in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals.

Kacper Przybylko scored a second-half brace to put the Philadelphians in good stead to secure their spot in the last four.

New England Revolution vs Atlanta United Head-to-Head

This will be the eighth meeting between the sides and Atlanta United have a much better record.

The Five Stripes have five wins and two draws to their name, while the New England Revolution are yet to register a victory against the Georgia side.

Their most recent meeting came in October 2019 when a second-half goal from Franco Escobar was enough to give Atlanta United a 1-0 victory.

Both sides have garnered four points from their two league matches to date. However, Atlanta United saw their unbeaten start to the season end at the hands of Philadelphia Union in continental football.
