The New England Revolution started the regular season 2-8-2. They’ll end the regular season with a spot in the playoffs. After adding Bruce Arena as coach and bringing in striker Gustavo Bou, the Revolution clinched a playoff spot on Sunday with a 2-0 win over NYCFC. Teal Bunbury scored the winner in the 66th minute and Bou finished the game off with a goal in the 89th minute, securing at worst the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. New England could still finish as high as fifth with a game to go. 

Bou’s late goal came on an absolutely ridiculous chip from way outside the box. Take a look:

What a goal, and what a moment to clinch a spot in the playoffs. Later in the day’s action, Real Salt Lake also clinched by beating the Houston Dynamo 2-1.

Now, all that’s left are two spots in the Western Conference to be decided next weekend.
