A battle on Saturday will determine who sits atop the Eastern Conference by the end of the weekend.
With Philly sitting top of the conference, RBNY are just one point behind.
The winner will help set the pace for the rest of the teams -- as well as setting the tone for the I-95 Derby.
If we're just talking goals for and goals against, New York and Philly are pretty much on the same level this season.
Both defenses have allowed just eight goals this season.
New York has scored 16 times on the year, while Philly had scored 15 goals.
New York is looking to set the record for most wins to start an MLS season on the road.
RBNY are undefeated so far in 2022, a perfect 5-0-0 in MLS play (as well as 2-0-0 in the 2022 U.S. Open Cup).
If the Red Bulls win, they will be the first team to ever win the first six matches to open a season in MLS history. The record for longest road winning streak at any time during the year is seven matches.
