Wills makes 5 saves, Nashville ties Revolution 0-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Joe Willis made three of his five saves in a span of four minutes as Nashville played to a scoreless draw against the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

Before the game, Nashville (4-5-5) had one player test positive for COVID-19. He did not travel and is in self quarantine. The rest of the team tested negative twice before leaving for today’s game.

Tajon Buchanan had three shots for the Revolution that included a header attempt in the 61st minute that Willis tapped over the crossbar. Willis deflected another Buchanan shot from close range three minutes later. Willis then blocked Gustavo Bou’s free-kick attempt in the 65th.

Nashville’s best chance was early in the second half on a free kick that changed direction after deflecting off Brandon Bye, but goalkeeper Matt Turner lunged to his left to knock it away.

The Revolution (5-3-7) have allowed just nine goals over the last 11 games, yet had a three-game win streak snapped in their first match against expansion Nashville.
