Club América began the match on the front foot, breaking the deadlock in the 16th minute through Henry Martín. Following a Revolution giveaway at midfield, the visitors countered quickly, with the ball eventually finding Javairô Dilrosun on the right side of the penalty area. The Dutch winger sent a low cross to Martín, who turned and sent a shot through the hands of New England goalkeeper Earl Edwards Jr. for the early lead.

The LIGA MX frontrunners doubled the advantage eight minutes later, as Martín combined with Alejandro Zendejas. The striker threaded a through ball into the path of Zendejas, who cut back and fired a shot into the top left corner of the net. Cristian Calderón added a third in the 63rd minute for Club América, tapping home a rebound from close range. In the 90th minute, Brian Rodriguez finished off the scoring, slotting home a weighted pass from Diego Valdes.

New England created attacking chances late in the second half. First, Tomás Chancalay picked up a loose ball at the top of the penalty area and fired a shot that forced Club América goalkeeper Luis Malagon into an awkward save. Moments later, Ian Harkes headed a cross on frame that was punched over the bar.

The Revolution return to MLS action at home this Saturday, April 6 against Charlotte FC. The 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff at Gillette Stadium is available to watch on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV in English and Spanish. Listen to the Revolution’s local radio calls on 98.5 The Sports Hub (WBZ-FM) or 1260 AM “Nossa Radio USA” in Portuguese.
