Gustavo Bou

Forward Gustavo Bou has been one of Major League Soccer’s top attacking players since entering the league in 2019. Bou enjoyed an electric
season in 2021, scoring 15 goals to rank second on the Revolution, along
with nine assists.
The Argentine ranks second in MLS in combined goals and assists in regular season play since he arrived in MLS in July 2019 with 47 direct goal
involvements. Bou’s 29 goals in regular season play since arriving in New
England and his 28 goals from open play across all competitions are both
third most in MLS dating back to his debut on July 17, 2019:

The 2021 MLS All-Star was recognized for his blistering scoring pace with
his first selection to the MLS Best XI. Bou’s 15 goals in 2021 ranked tied for
ninth-most in MLS while his 24 combined goals and assists ranked fourth
in the league last season.
The Revolution have lost only once when Bou scores a goal and on just
two occasions when he records an assist. Bou has been known for his
late-game heroics with New England going unbeaten on seven occasions when he finds the back of the next after the 85th minute. Since 2020, New England’s splits with and without Bou show just how vital the
Argentine is to the Revolution attack:

Without Gustavo Bou 7-8-1 -1 1.4

In addition to his scoring prowess, Bou has also showcased his ability to
create chances for his teammates, finishing the 2021 campaign with nine
assists. Since the start of the 2020 season, Bou ranks second among MLS
forwards in chances created (105), including a league-best 96 chances
created from open play.
