MatchDay: Red Bulls vs. D.C. United (11-8-12)

Get up to speed on game notes ahead of Thursday's clash at Red Bull Arena

TRAVEL OPTIONS

Note: Shuttle service from Newark Penn to Red Bull Arena starts two hours before the match and concludes one hour after. To access the shuttle service, keep an eye out for the Red Bulls street team. They will be on hand to entertain all fans on their way to the Arena and to provide directions to the shuttle service. Be sure to look for the Raymond Plaza East - Market Street exit, located between the entrances for Track A of the PATH train.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, PATH service has been suspended to Harrison and Newark Penn. In addition, NJ Transit is running on an intermittent schedule and may not service transportation to your normal station. So for those of you who normally take the PATH into Red Bull Arena, here are a few alternative travel plans.

- Various NJ Transit train lines will be running from New York Penn Station to Newark Penn Station.  We have added additional shuttle buses at Newark Penn Station to transport fans to Red Bull Arena.  These shuttles buses are free of charge and will run in a loop from Newark Penn Station to Red Bull Arena throughout the match.

All driving directions listed in the Transportation Hub remain the same.  Please reference the Transportation Hub for driving and parking directions only.

GAME NOTES

With the Red Bulls and D.C. United tying 1-1 in the first leg at RFK Stadium, the victor of Wednesday’s second leg at Red Bull Arena will earn the opportunity to compete in the MLS Cup Playoffs Eastern Conference Final.

D.C. United scored first off a Roy Miller own goal Saturday. However, New York got on the board four minutes later after goalkeeper Bill Hamid mishandled a Heath Pearce header and put it over the end line.
