INSIDE THE 18: Red Bulls Ready to Keep Home Unbeaten Streak Rolling


The New York Red Bulls are unbeaten in their last nine home matches -- and will look to stretch that to 10 on Saturday night vs. Orlando City SC.

This will be the 22nd overall regular season meeting between the two clubs with New York holding the advantage with a 9-8-3 mark against Orlando.

Emil Forsberg, fresh off his first brace in MLS, starts for New York, with Lewis Morgan, Dante Vanzeir and Wiki Carmona joining him in the attack.

Forsberg has now scored six goals this season, which ranks tied for seventh in MLS by a midfielder. He has recorded four of those goals at Red Bull Arena and has tallied five goal contributions in his last five MLS matches.

The defensive midfield pairing of Frankie Amaya and Daniel Edelman link up again.

New York have scored three-plus goals in consecutive home matches for the first time since 2022. The Red Bulls have become the second team in franchise history to go unbeaten in the club’s first six home matches to begin a season.

John Tolkin, Sean Nealis, Noah Eile and Dylan Nealis start along the back line, with Carlos Coronel in net.

Tolkin is making his 100th career MLS appearance with the start.

Off the bench, Head Coach Sando Schwarz will have Cory Burke, Kyle Duncan, Bento Estrela, Dennis Gjengaar, Julian Hall, AJ Marcucci, Elias Manoel, Ryan Meara and Aidan O’Connor as substitutes.

Cameron Harper, Andrés Reyes, Serge Ngoma, Ronald Donkor, Peter Stroud and Roald Mitchell miss the match due to injuries.

Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET with coverage on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV in English and Spanish and New York Red Bulls Radio in English via TuneIn, the New York Red Bulls app and
