- 45’+2’ — NE — Carles Gil (PK) | WATCH
- THE BIG PICTURE: It was a professional performance from the Revs, who open their home slate with a fairly comfortable 1-0 win. There were chances to extend the advantage and a late opportunity for FC Dallas to level, but for the most part New England were clearly the better team. It was also yet another milestone for MLS coaching goat Bruce Arena, who set the league’s mark for all-time regular-season wins. It all sets up nicely for the Revs ahead of a Concacaf Champions League quarterfinal showdown with Pumas UNAM on Wednesday at Gillette Stadium (8 pm ET).
- MOMENT OF THE MATCH: Gil secured all three points with this clinical finish from the spot.
- MAN OF THE MATCH: Gil takes the honors, not just for the lone strike, but also for completing 82.8% of his passes, 55.6% of his duels and for the reveal in his post-goal celebration.
