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


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

Frankie’s in Form

Midfielder Frankie Amaya put in one of his best performances of the season on Wednesday against league-leaders FC Cincinnati.

With his team’s back against the wall, his goal and performance in the midfield sparked a 2-1 win.

Against a Toronto FC team that has not shown much fortitude defensively or in the midfield, Amaya could be in for another Man of the Match-like performance.

No Scoreboard Watching

Three points is a requirement for the Red Bulls on Saturday.

In a cluster of seven teams vying for the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference, the Red Bulls have the most favorable matchup on paper.

While the other six teams battle tough tests, or matchups against each other, the Red Bulls need to have their focus solely on securing a home win.

For the Fans

Despite a rocky season for the Red Bulls, result-wise, the fans at Red Bull Arena have been by the team’s side.

In the final home match of the season, three crucial points would be a reward fit for Fan Appreciation Night.
