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


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

Up Off the Mat

Since John Tolkin secured a home win against D.C. United one month ago, the Red Bulls have yet to secure three points.

That’s a four-match winless run for a New York team that is fighting for its playoff life.

Securing three points against an Austin FC will be critical to righting the ship and starting a push towards the postseason.

No Place Like Home

It’s been almost one month since the Red Bulls played a match at Red Bull Arena, a place where New York owns a 6-4-4 record.

A home match in front of the supporters might be just what the doctor ordered for the Red Bulls.

Ready to Strike?

The frontline has been a puzzle that the Red Bulls have been trying to solve all season. Due to injuries and other unavailability, there has yet to be a consistent strike partnership.

With all forward options back on the roster and ready for selection, will the Red Bulls finally find a combo that works against an Austin FC backline that has allowed a league-high 45 goals this season.
