The New York Red Bulls return to Red Bull Arena to host the New England Revolution. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by Honda:
Take Advantage of Home Stretch
After their visit to Chicago, the Red Bulls will close out the 2020 regular season with two games at Red Bull Arena and a trip to Yankee Stadium to visit NYCFC.
New York’s last home win happened on September 27th, a 4-1 win over the Montreal Impact. Tom Barlow got a brace, and Kaku finished the night with a goal and an assist.
Getting those home wins will be important as the Red Bulls seek to move up on the standings in the Eastern Conference.
Lessons from First Meeting
In their first meeting of the season in Foxborough, the Red Bulls drew 1-1 against the Revs. Omir Fernandez scored his first goal of the season.
Pinpointing what went right and wrong for New York in that visit should help shape its game plan for this week’s game.
Game Will Have Playoff Implications
New England currently has a three point advantage over the Red Bulls. The Revs are in 6th place, while the Red Bulls are in 7th place.
They’re both in the battle to determine who plays an Eastern Conference play-in game or not.
The Revs have two wins, one loss and one draw in their last four meetings.
