New England Revolution Player Notes: Forward Gustavo Bou

BOU KNOWS GOALS: GUSTAVO BACK ON THE PROWL IN ’21

Forward Gustavo Bou returned from a late-season injury to pace New
England with three goals in the MLS Cup Playoffs, including an iconic
stoppage-time winner against Montreal in the Play-In Round and a brace
against Orlando in the Eastern Conference Semifinal.
Since he joined the club in July 2019 on a club-record transfer fee from
Liga MX’s Club Tijuana, the Revolution have yet to lose when Bou scores
a goal. New England owns a 10-0-7 record across all competitions when
La Pantera finds the back of the net. That record improved in New England’s season opener, when Bou scored the game-tying goal against
Chicago Fire FC.

The 31-year old has a flare for the dramatic, too, having scored seven
times in the 85th minute or later in his MLS career. The Revs are 5-0-
2 in those games. Combining regular season and postseason play, Bou
ranked second in MLS last season in game-winning goals despite missing five games due to injury:
