KEYS TO THE GAME, pres. by Honda: New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls

The New York Red Bulls (1-3-2, 5 pts) conclude their two-match road stint against the New England Revolution (1-5-1, 4 pts) at Gillette Stadium. Saturday’s match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on MSG, MSG Go and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.

Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by Honda:

Up Top

Brian White cashed in his opportunity at forward, nabbing the then-go-ahead goal against Sporting Kansas City, subbing in for Bradley Wright-Phillips.

BWP, White and Mathias Jørgensen could all be in the mix for playing time up top against New England. Having one of them put the ball in the back of the net will be important at Gilette Stadium.

Clean Sheet

New York is still looking for their first shutout of the season.

Coming off their historic 2018 season, the Red Bulls have an even goal differential, scoring eight times and conceding eight times.

No. 10

With Kaku out following his red card, the Red Bulls will need to replace their No. 10 in the middle of the field.

Vincent Bezecourt has stepped up this season when Kaku hasn't started and could be in line for another nod come Saturday. Beze's performance on the pitch could be critical against the Revs.
