Looking to forget last Saturday’s “worst loss of the season”, the New England Revolution played their first of three matches on the road. Playing in Minnesota for the first time since joining the league in 2017, the Revs were hoping a midweek match would help forget about Saturdays loss and get back in the win column.

With three players missing due to suspensions, Penilla, Delamea, and Caicedo were all out for the match up against Minnesota.

However the match didn’t start well for the Revs. In the fifth minute, Minnesota scored first. I bet Anibaba, who has had a good season so far would like to have this one back.

Just before half time, Minnesota would double the lead. A great individual play by Darwin Quintero to dribble past Revs defenders and burying his shot. Revs manager Brad Friedel was not as impressed with the goal.

Early in the second half, the Revs were able to cut the deficit in half. After a clumsy foul Alexi Gomez, pushing Kelyn Rowe down from behind. Diego successfully converted his spot shot. That would be the last goal, and Minnesota hangs on for a 2-1 win.

Statistically speaking, the Revs played a good match. It was New England who did most of the attacking, they had shots on target, even forced Minnesota’s goalie to make a good reaction save late, but just not enough at the end.
