Guzan tough in goal for Atlanta in 0-0 draw with Revolution

FOXBORO, Mass. - Brad Guzan made five saves, barely deflecting Lee Nguyen's free kick in the 87th minute, to give Atlanta United a 0-0 draw with the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

Nguyen's long kick from the left side curved left, almost fooling Guzan, but the goalkeeper was able to leap and barely punch it into the crossbar. He made another save off a set piece in stoppage time.

New England (11-15-6), clinging to very slim playoff hopes, controlled possession but couldn't break through against Guzan, who recorded his seventh shutout of the season.

Brad Knighton made two saves and picked up his first shutout in three starts this season.

Atlanta United (15-8-8), which clinched a playoff berth with a win over Philadelphia on Wednesday, picked up a point in its bid to climb the standings and claim a first-round bye. United ran its unbeaten streak to eight while the draw ended the Revolution's six-game home win streak.

First look: Revolution unveil state-of-the-art training center

The New England Revolution officially have a world-class new home.

The team on Monday unveiled the New England Revolution Training Center, a sprawling complex spanning 68 acres just down the street from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.

Notable features of the $35 million facility include:

-- Three full-size, natural-grass fields (including one equipped with heating technology) totaling 337,500 square feet

-- First Team locker room exceeding 1,200 square feet

-- State-of-the-art gym featuring weight training equipment powered by a hydraulic air system

-- Hydrotherapy room with three pools, totaling 5,000 gallons in volume, slated for heat therapy, cold recovery, and accelerated rehabilitation with an underwater treadmill

-- 25-foot wide conditioning hill climbing 140 feet at a steep 10% grade on the perimeter of the First Team training fields

-- Spacious team dining and lounge space that features a 36-foot-long communal reclaimed wooden table

-- On-site barbershop

Here's a look inside the facility with photos of the locker room, weight room and more:

The new facility, located at 1776 Revolution Way, also has sustainable roots with a close connection to the surrounding environment.

The complex was constructed with locally sourced wood, glass and metal materials designed to integrate the facility into the wetlands behind Gillette Stadium, and the Revolution replanted 350 native trees, 550 shrubs and over 1,000 grasses and plants to minimize disruption to the natural ecosystem.
