The New York Red Bulls (0-1-1, 1 pts.) head North to battle Minnesota United FC (1-0-0, 3 pts.) on Saturday, March 11 at Allianz Field. Kickoff is set for 8:30 p.m. ET on Apple TV MLS Season pass and New York Red Bulls Radio in English via TuneIn, the New York Red Bulls app, and NewYorkRedBulls.com.
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 22 total scoring chances, but have yet to convert in the final third.
Getting a goal early would get the monkey off the back of a New York attack looking for that first tally on the scoresheet.
Brick Wall Backline
The Red Bulls defense has been almost impenetrable so far in 2023, only allowing one goal in five preseason matches and no shots on target from open play in the MLS regular season.
Defenders Andrés Reyes and Sean Nealis lead the league in challenges won, and goalkeeper Carlos Coronel hasn’t had to record a save in open play so far this season.
Against a Minnesota team that is without star Emmanuel Reynoso, New York will look to keep their impressive defensive start going.
After a Minnesota United home victory, the supporters and team share in a group rendition of Oasis’ hit song “Wonderwall”.
New York will work to earn their first win of the season on Saturday, ensuring that song doesn’t hit the speakers at Allianz Field.
