Two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference were unable to determine a winner as the MLS-leading New England Revolution and Nashville SC played to a scoreless draw on Wednesday night in Foxborough, Mass.

Matt Turner made a pair of saves in his return from CONCACAF Gold Cup duty for league-leading New England (11-3-4, 37 points), which extended its unbeaten streak to five games after winning four straight entering the match.

"Just a poor technical performance on our part. We did a lot of good things, had a lot of control in the game," Revolution coach Bruce Arena told the team's myTV38 telecast. "We created not enough chances and technically weren't good on the day."

Joe Willis stopped all six shots he faced to help Nashville (6-1-10, 28 points) pick up a point on the road and stretch its own unbeaten run to nine games (4-0-5).

Nashville, which beat New England 2-0 at home on May 8, has never lost to the Revolution since entering the league as an expansion side in 2020, going 1-0-3.

Revolution captain and midfielder Carles Gil was sidelined due to an injury. Gil, who leads the league with 15 assists, is expected to miss three-plus weeks as a result of a sports hernia, according to SB Nation.

Gustavo Bou gave the Revolution a chance to pull out a win in the first minute of second-half stoppage time when he floated a ball into the box for Teal Bunbury, whose header was corralled on a bounce by Willis.

Two minutes later, C.J. Sapong was able to slip a ball through the box on the other end, but Nashville was unable to maintain possession.

Before the match, four New England players -- Turner, Gil, Bou and Tajon Buchanan -- were named to the 2021 MLS All-Star Game. Injured Nashville defender Walker Zimmerman earned the first All-Star nomination in club history.

Nashville visits Inter Miami on Sunday night while New England hosts the Philadelphia Union.
