With a victory the Red Bulls would leap frog NYCFC into third place. NYCFC took the first of three meetings between the teams 2-0, but the Red Bulls have won 6 of 8 matches when these teams have kicked it off.

The Bulls are coming into the match roaring, coming off a big win over Montreal last weekend, and they are playing their finest soccer of the season. NYCFC has been nearly unbeatable at Yankee Stadium, going 7-1-3 this season.
