KEYS TO THE GAME, pres. by Honda: New York Red Bulls vs. Philadelphia Union


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

Burke’s Breakout?

Forward Cory Burke broke through on April 29 against Chicago with his first goal in a New York Red Bulls jersey.

Now, his former club comes to Red Bull Arena. Can Burke build on the momentum of scoring his first goal of the season?

Keep it Clean (Sheet)

While New York has allowed fewer shots than most MLS clubs, they have not kept a clean sheet since the home opener match against Nashville on March 4.

Philadelphia has an incredibly potent attack, but keeping them off the score sheet would go a long way towards earning their second home win of the season.

How Can JMi Assist You?

Defender John Tolkin has already set a career-high mark for assists so far this season with four in eight appearances.

He and Cristian Cásseres Jr. are the only two Red Bulls players to have an assist in 2023.

If New York is going to get on the scoreboard against Philadelphia, the assist will likely come from Tolkin.
