ATLANTA — The New England Revolution (8-3-3; 27 points) defeated Atlanta United (2-4-7; 13 points) 1-0 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday.
Gustavo Bou delivered the game-winning goal, his team-leading seventh of the season, on a left-footed strike from the center of the box in the 18th minute. Forward Adam Buksa and midfielder Wilfrid Kaptoum registered the assists on Bou’s tally.
With the win, New England sweeps the season series with Atlanta (2-0-0) as the Revs pick up their fourth clean sheet of the season.
Bou’s first-half tally was his sixth goal over the last seven contests. The Argentinian striker, who made his Revolution debut two years ago today on July 17, 2019, now owns 21 regular season goals – fourth most in MLS during that span – with seven assists.
Buksa logged a game-high five shots and collected his first assist of the season, while Kaptoum collected his first helper in MLS. Meanwhile, Carles Gil registered game highs in touches (58) and key passes (5), in addition to three shots, including a curling left-footed effort in the 25th minute that struck woodwork.
The Revs have 27 points through 14 games and lead Philadelphia (24) and Orlando (23) in the Eastern conference and host Inter Miami CF on Wednesday in Foxboro for a 7:30 p.m. start.
