The Revs were missing a massive amount of impact players in Ft. Lauderdale, but it was hard to even notice. Miami was simply horrible on the night, while New England finished off all of their first half chances.
It was a highlight night for Arnór Traustason and Carles Gil, who assisted two goals before being substituted out to miss his first minutes of the 2021 season.
‘3 MIA CHANCE Robbie Robinson beats Tommy McNamara, and takes an effort from distance that goes wide to the right of Knighton’s net
‘11 NE CHANCE The Revs thought they scored, but Bunbury was a step offside before placing his shot in the bottom left
‘14 MIA YELLOW CARD Jorge Figal
‘15 NE GOAL Carles Gil whips in a free kick, and Traustason scores his first Revolution goal with a power header MIA: 0 NE: 1
‘27 NE GOAL Bunbury lays it off for Gil, he drops to McNamara who fires, but Marsman leaves a juicy rebound and Bunbury slams it into the top of the net! MIA: 0 NE: 2
‘35 MIA CHANCE Ball whipped into Lewis Morgan is slammed off the crossbar and back out
‘36 NE GOAL After a sloppy mess in the box, Jon Bell was able to leave it for Arnór Traustason, who took a positive touch and curled it into the top right corner for a brace! MIA: 0 NE: 3
‘47 NE CHANCE Gil plays his ball across on a 3 on 1, Buksa dummies, and Bunbury is unable to finish as Marsman saves well
‘48 NE GOAL Carles Gil gets down the bi-line, crosses it into the box, and Adam Buksa slams it into the top shelf for a fourth! MIA: 0 NE: 4
‘59 NE CHANCE Carles chips a ball in for Bunbury, Marsman saves well at the near post
‘83 NE GOAL A fifth goal comes late as Bou plays an inch perfect ball in behind, and Adam Buksa chips the keeper for his brace! MIA: 0 NE: 5
FULLTIME MIA: 0 NE: 5
The Revolution rolled through Inter Miami CF with a resounding 5-0 victory, without Turner, Buchanan, and Kessler. The depth continues to prove to be effective, and New England keeps rolling. They now sit atop the Supporter’s Shield standings, first place in all of Major League Soccer. They go again on Sunday when they host CF Montreal at 6:00 PM EST at Gillette Stadium.
