KEYS TO THE GAME, pres. by Honda: Chicago Fire FC vs. New York Red Bulls


Get to know the matchup in Keys to the Game, presented by Honda:

Win-dy City?

New York is eager to record their second win of the season.

New York has won five of their last 10 trips to Illinois, and has only lost three times. Last year, the Red Bulls came from behind to beat Chicago 2-1 at a rain-soaked Soldier Field.

Will a trip to the Windy City provide the perfect opportunity to do just that?

Break Through

New York has been knocking on the door offensively, but has yet to find a breakthrough when it has come to putting it in the back of the net.

The Red Bulls attack has created 39 total scoring chances, but have only converted six times. They have only scored first once so far this season.

Getting a goal early would ease the pressure for a New York attack still looking to get in gear

Who’s Up?

Key players like Luquinhas, Lewis Morgan and Kyle Duncan won’t be suiting up for the Red Bulls at Soldier Field, meaning it will be a “next man up” mentality for the Red Bulls this weekend.

For a team who has only managed six goals in nine matches in 2023, who will step into the starting lineup and make an impact for the New York attack?
