Do New England Revolution have the talent to win 2020 MLS Cup?

After a breakout 2019 season, do the New England Revolution have enough talent to win the 2020 MLS Cup?

There are plenty of reasons to be hopeful of a strong campaign entering Saturday afternoon's season opener versus the Montreal Impact. One of them is the three-headed monster leading the Revolution attack -- Gustavo Bou, Carles Gil and Adam Buksa.

Buksa arrived over the offseason for the second-largest transfer fee in club history (around $4 million, per reports). His addition gives the Revolution three designated players (the max for every MLS roster). Buksa stands 6-foot-3, making him dangerous in the air and a difficult player for opposing center backs to defend.

Bou joined the Revolution in July of last season and instantly made an impact with a goal in his debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps. He scored nine goals in 14 league games to help lead the Revs back to the MLS playoffs for the first time since 2015.

Revolution Classics: Bruce Arena beats Galaxy in Revs head coaching debut

With no MLS games for the foreseeable future, NBC Sports Boston will give New England Revolution fans a chance to get their fix by re-airing some classic games. On Saturday, we'll take a look back at Bruce Arena's first game as Revolution head coach vs. his former team, the L.A. Galaxy, in 2019.

Arena's Revolution head coaching debut was a success as he led his new group to a 2-1 road victory over an L.A. Galaxy team he coached for nine years. Cristian Penilla scored the Revs' first goal, and then it was Teal Bunbury who tallied the difference-maker.

After a sluggish start to the season with Brad Friedel as head coach, Arena rallied the Revs to a 6-0-2 record in the first eight games of his tenure in New England. The changing of the guard helped propel the Revolution to the MLS Cup Playoffs.

You'll have the chance to relive the action on Saturday at 7 p.m, right here on NBC Sports Boston.

Revolution Classics: How to watch 2002 MLS Cup Finals vs. LA Galaxy

With no MLS games for the foreseeable future, NBC Sports Boston will give New England Revolution fans a chance to get their fix by re-airing some classic games. On Saturday, we'll take a look back at the 2002 MLS Cup Finals between the Revs and Los Angeles Galaxy.

Unfortunately, many know how this game ended for the Revolution -- a 1-0 loss to the Galaxy in double overtime -- but it's still one of the greatest games in New England's history. However, it was really cool that Gillette Stadium was chosen as the neutral site to host the match... it was basically a home game for the Revs.

Although Carlos Ruiz scored the game-winning goal, this match was probably the closest New England has ever been to a championship title. 

The Revolution and Galaxy ended the regular season at the top of their respective conferences, and it felt like they were destined for a championship clash, so it was terrific to see it actually happen. 

This is a blast from the past, and you'll have the chance to relive the action on Saturday at 7 p.m., and you won't want to miss it.
