FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (March 18, 2023) – The New England Revolution (3-1-0, 9 pts.) defeated Nashville SC (2-1-1, 7 pts.), 1-0, on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium. Gustavo Bou scored his first goal of the season to secure the victory, assisted by DeJuan Jones, as Djordje Petrović recorded three saves to give New England its third win and third shutout through the first four games of the 2023 season.
New England’s three shutouts, tied for the most in MLS through Matchday 4, are the team’s most after four games in any season. Nine points marks the club’s second-best start through four matches. With the shutout, Petrović becomes the fifth MLS goalkeeper to record 10 clean sheets through his first 25 league starts, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Bou broke the stalemate in the 52nd minute, collecting a through ball from DeJuan Jones and blasting a left-footed shot inside the near post. The goal was the first conceded by Nashville SC this season, snapping their shutout streak at 322 minutes. Bou, the Revolution’s leading scorer in 2022 and the fifth New England player to find the back of the net this season, moved into seventh place on the club’s all-time scoring list with his 38th regular-season goal.
Jones notched his 15th career MLS assist on the winning goal, his second helper in as many home games. Since the start of 2020, Jones ranks third among MLS defenders with 18 combined goals and assists.
