The New York Red Bulls fly to Chicago to meet the Chicago Fire FC at Soldier Field. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by Honda:
Build off Last Three Results
The Red Bulls started a string of three games at Atlanta, and thanks to Caden Clark’s first MLS goal walked away with a hard earned win.
Days later, they visited Toronto FC in Connecticut and rescued a point. In their recent home game, Brian White scored an equalizer in the 95th minute to get New York another 1-1 draw.
New York has not allowed a goal from the run of play in 305 minutes, which is one of the main takeaways from the Red Bulls recent games.
With four games left in the regular season, the Red Bulls are finding a rhythm that should have them heading into the postseason in strong form.
Deal with Toughest Remaining Schedule in MLS
The Red Bulls’ remaining opponents have an average of 2.10 points per game, which will make their next four games have a postseason feel to them.
Over 180 minutes of play against Orlando City and Toronto FC, New York conceded two goals, both from the penalty spot. After coming out with two draws from those matches, the Red Bulls are prepared to confront this tough remaining schedule.
The Fire with One Loss in Last Six Games
Chicago Fire FC are currently in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, just barely in the playoffs mix.
Their current top goalscorer is Robert Beric with eight goals, and their leading assist man is Álvaro Medran with six.
In their last six games, they’ve scored 12 goals and conceded six.
