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

Attack, Attack, Attack

FC Cincinnati has allowed 32 goals in 18 games this season, which is fifth-worst in MLS.

The Red Bulls have a 1.45 expected goal total away from home, which is seventh-best in MLS, but have only scored once in their last four road games.

There should be plenty of opportunities for the New York attack to get on the scoreboard.

Top of the Pile

For the first time this season, New York sits alone atop the Eastern Conference standings.

Owning the spotlight and coming out with another road victory will show this team is a real contender for top team in the East.

No Looking Ahead

With a derby match against New York City FC on the horizon, there can’t be any looking past a Cincinnati team that will be ready to take on the Red Bulls.

This is a Cincinnati squad that has already exceeded all expectations, but is looking to remain in the playoff places, this will be one of the biggest game of their season so far.

New York needs to make sure the motivation advantage isn’t heavily swinging in Cincinnati’s direction.
