On Thursday, Revs and Orlando were held to a 1-1 draw at Gillette Stadium. As things stand, Revs are currently 6th with 20 points from 24 matches, while Orlando sit in 5th, with 22 points from 24.

It was an impressive opening from Revs, when Carles Gil gave Revs the lead in the 22nd minute. However, their celebrations were kept brief, as Jansson equalised for The Lions, 35 minutes in, concluding the first half 1-1. The second part ended with little further action at either end and goalless.

Substitutions for Revs included Mcnamara, Altidore, Boateng and Traustason for Polster, Kaptoum, Borrero and Lletget, repectively. Orlando replaced Mulraney, Pato, Pereyra and Torres for Michel, Kara, Perea and Akindele.

There were bookings for Kaptoum, Farrell, Borrero and Dejuan Jones from Revs. For Orlando, Jansson, Mulraney, Schlegel and Smith saw yellow.

Revs next face Cincinnati and Orlando are at home to D.C. United.
