By tying Toronto FC 0-0 Sunday morning, the New England Revolution clinched a spot in the MLS Is Back Tournament Round of 16.
Both teams had scoring chances late, but goaltending prevailed, including this incredible point-blank save from New England goalie Matt Turner, which kept Toronto off the board in the 79th minute.
That play was followed by a near-go-ahead goal a few minutes later, but no whistle was blown on the contact between New England’s Gustavo Bou and Toronto’s Michael Bradley.
The Revs finish the group stage with a 1-0-2 record, starting with a win over the Montreal Impact before tying D.C. United and Toronto.
Their seeding and next opponent is yet to be determined, with tonight’s matchup between D.C. and Montreal still needed to finalize the Group C table.
If the Impact win or tie, the Revolution finish second in their group and will face the Philadelphia Union on Saturday in their first game of the knockout round. If D.C. wins tonight, the Revolution’s next opponent will be decided by tiebreakers involving goal differential and goals scored.
You can catch all of the Revolution’s action from the bubble on 98.5 The Sports Hub and the HD2 channel.
