ABOUT THE MATCH

The Red Bulls will host a rested Sporting Kansas City (3-1-2, 11 points, third place in East) side that did not have a game over the weekend. Sporting’s last match was a 1-0 win over D.C. United at home, as Designated Player Claudio Bieler put in a Sonny Saad cross in the 89th minute to earn the hosts the three points. The 2011 and 2012 Eastern Conference regular season champion is unbeaten in its past two matches, going 2-0-2. All-time, New York is 17-18-11 versus the Kansas City MLS franchise and 10-4-8 at home. In 2012, the Red Bulls went 0-1-2 against Sporting, tying 0-0 on Oct. 20 at Red Bull Arena in the last match between the two sides.

Three days later, the Red Bulls welcome the New England Revolution for the first time this year. The Revolution (1-2-2, 5 pts.) is coming off a 0-0 tie away from home against Seattle Sounders FC last Saturday. While the Revs have only conceded a league-low two goals this year, New England has found the back of the net just once through Honduran forward Jerry Bengtson in its 1-0 season-opening victory over the Chicago Fire on March 9 at TOYOTA Park. New York has a 19-26-13 record against New England, going 15-8-7 at home and a perfect 3-0 at Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls were 1-1-1 versus the Revs in 2012, most recently tying 1-1 on Sept. 22 at Gillette Stadium.
