Cincinnati vs New England Revolution: Match Analysis
A first win of the season coupled with the manner of victory will give Cincinnati a lot of confidence going into the forthcoming matches. However, it is unlikely that forthcoming openings will be defending set pieces badly like Montréal. Cincinnati were camped in their own half during the last match, but Jaap Stam will look to make improvements to the team’s possession play in the final third. Franko Kovacevic, Tom Pettersson, and Maikel van der Werff are unavailable for Stam.
New England Revolution
Bruce Arena might see his team top of the Eastern conference table by two points, but the team are far from perfect. This is apparent from the manner in which the Revolution are still waiting for the first win on the road this season. The individual errors from New England Revolution players have reduced drastically in the last few games. Christian Mafla, Collin Verfurth, and Luis Alberto Caicedo are unavailable for Bruce Arena.
