MLS: New England Revolution first qualifies for Eastern Conference final

The epilogue of the season in MLS is approaching and the first finalist of the Eastern Conference is now known, it is the New England Revolution. The Massachusetts franchise, coached by Bruce Arena, eliminated Orlando City (3-1) on Sunday. This is a surprise given the ranking of the two teams at the end of the regular season. The Floridians finished in fourth place, while their executioners narrowly qualified in eighth position.

But in the play-offs, the counters are reset and, this Sunday, the partners of Gustavo Bou, author of a double (17th and 25th) were the most realistic. The Argentine paid a vibrant tribute to Diego Maradona by waving the albiceleste flag after his two achievements. Nani could also have donned the hero’s costume if he had not missed the equalizer penalty (74th). The former Mancunien and his family then played ten after the expulsion of Peyrera (60th).

In the next round, the equivalent of the semifinals at the national level, New England will face the winner of the game between the Columbus Crew and Nashville, scheduled for the night. In the West, the semi-finals will pit Sporting Kansas City against Minnesota and FC Dallas against defending champions Seattle Sounders.
