- Atlanta holds a 4-3-4 all-time record against New England in MLS regular season play: 3-1-2 at home and 1-2-2 on the road. This will be the second meeting between the teams in 2023 as the teams split the points in a dramatic 3-3 draw at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on May 31.
- Atlanta is coming off consecutive clean sheet wins against Philadelphia and Montreal and held each opponent to a single shot on target. The team will be looking to keep its third straight shutout in MLS for the first time since a five-game run in 2019.
- Wednesday’s match will feature two of the top-five chance creators in MLS in Thiago Almada and Carles Gil. Almada ranks second with 57 chances created while New England’s playmaker is tied for fourth with 52.
- Almada has recorded the second-most goal contributions (eight goals, 10 assists) in the league, trailing only Nashville’s Hany Mukhtar with 21.
- Brooks Lennon scored the decisive goal in Atlanta’s victory on Saturday, his third goal and 10th goal contribution of the season. That matches his highest goal total in a single season (2017, Real Salt Lake) and is the most goal contributions he has had in a single season in his career.
- New England heads into Matchday 23 in third place in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of Atlanta, and coming off a 2-1 loss on the road against New York Red Bulls on Saturday. The loss snapped a seven-game unbeaten streak for the Revolution, the team’s second unbeaten run of at least seven matches this season. New England is one of two teams (FC Cincinnati) yet to lose a home match this year, as the Revolution hold a 7-0-3 record at Gillette Stadium.
Giorgos Giakoumakis (Hamstring) is questionable and Miles Robinson is out on International Duty.
