Keys to the Game

KEYS TO THE GAME, pres. by Honda: New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls


Who’s in Goal?

New England had an All-Star in net when these two clubs last met in the Leagues Cup group stage. Now, they have a question mark.

Earl Edwards Jr. got the start in goal for New England’s last match, a 1-0 loss at Montréal.

Edwards Jr. has made 11 total appearances for the Revolution, allowing 17 goals and recording only two clean sheets.

They also signed goalkeeper Tomáš Vaclík as a free agent, but Edwards Jr. will likely be in net on Wednesday day at Gillette stadium.

Who’s Up Front?

Who will be leading the attack for the Red Bulls?

Elias Manoel started the past two match against D.C. United and Inter Miami, but failed to register a goal contribution.

With Dante Vanzeir not in the roster on Saturday against Miami and Jorge Cabezas Hurtado making his MLS debut, there is a question mark when it comes to leading the attack.

Road Trip of Rivals

Wednesday night kicks off a three-match stretch that includes away matches against New England, Philadelphia and New York City.

With the Red Bulls in a precarious spot when it comes to making the playoffs, this is a crucial road trip that will require results in all three matches.

That starts Wednesday at Gillette Stadium against a Revolution team that the Red Bulls are undefeated against in their last four matches.
