New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls: TV Guide, Live Stream Info and Odds for MLS This Weekend

Two teams in desperate need of points meet in Massachusetts this weekend, as the New England Revolution host the New York Red Bulls in Week 8 of the MLS regular season.

The two Eastern Conference rivals have got off to a dismal start this campaign, with New England bottom of the table and The Metros just a point ahead in the standings.

When and where is the game?

The game will be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, as New England plays in front of its fans for the second week in a row and New York concludes its two-game road trip ahead of a three-match stand.

A fortress for the New England Patriots, so far this season the stadium has proved to be anything but for the Revolution, who have lost three of their four games at home.

Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 20.

TV broadcast info

The game will be broadcast live on NBC Sports Boston and on MSG in the New York area.  Out-of-market viewers can catch all the action of MLS live on ESPN+ and the game will also be streamed live on FuboTV and SlingTV.

Betting odds

Just a point separates the two sides and bookmakers expect a close game. OddsShark has New England as a +139 favorite, while a Red Bull win is at +175 and the draw is at +250. The over/under bar, meanwhile, is set at 2.75.

Recent form

Both teams arrive into the weekend in dire need of a win. New England is bottom of the Eastern Conference with just four points in seven games, the league’s fifth-worst record.

The Revs’ 2-0 reverse against Atlanta last week was their second in a row and their third in four home games this season. The Gillette Stadium, however, was also the stage for New England’s solitary win of the campaign so far, a 2-1 win over Minnesota United last month.

Most of the team’s issues stem from its lack of form in front of the onion bag. The Revs have scored a paltry five goals so far—the MLS’s second-worst record after Atlanta United—and have failed to find the net in the last two games.

New York’s situation is only marginally better, with the team currently a point clear of New England.  The Metros are without a win in the last four, with last weekend’s draw away against Sporting Kansas City brining a run of three straight losses to an end.

Series record

New York Red Bulls have a slight edge in over the last few years by virtue of winning three of the last five meetings between the two sides, including the most recent one in July 2018.

New England, however, won the last meeting in Massachusetts 2-1 just a month earlier.
