Silence the Bell

New York has only shut out CF Montréal once in their last eight meetings, and have never done it as the away side.

Against an in-form Montréal with a potent attack, keeping the Stade Saputo crowd out of the match will be key to the Red Bulls’ success on Wednesday.


The Red Bulls will be without Kyle Duncan and John Tolkin for this match due to a red card and yellow card accumulation, respectively.

That’s not ideal against a Montréal team that has scored two or more goals in six of their last seven matches.

New faces will likely be needed to replace two key cogs in the lineup on Wednesday night.

The Kids are Alright

On Saturday against Inter Miami, Daniel Edelman became the fourth player 20 years old or younger to score a goal for the Red Bulls this season. Caden Clark added his name to that list shortly after.

The infusion of youth into the lineup throughout the season has paid dividends multiple times, and could do the same against CF Montréal.
