This Wednesday the New York Red Bulls visit D.C. United. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m ET.
Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by TriHonda Dealers:
Best Road Streak since 2000
After the first win in Columbus in the Gerhard Struber era and first since 2015, the Red Bulls are on an eight-match unbeaten run.
New York hadn’t won four-straight road matches in a single season since 2000, which ran from June 3 to July 8.
The wins in Fort Lauderdale, Yankee Stadium, Cincinnati and Columbus have New York above the playoff line with four games to go, starting in D.C.
With about a week to go in October, New York have recorded four-straight wins in October and have had four different game-winning goal scorers in Andrew Gutman, Omir Fernandez, Cristian Cásseres Jr., and Sean Nealis.
Multiple Key Scorers during Unbeaten Run
In this run, that has seen the Red Bulls outscore their opponents 12-3, there have been several scorers.
Patryk Klimala has scored three goals, Fernandez three and both Cásseres Jr. and Fábio have scored two apiece.
Fábio’s last goals came in the 4-0 win over Miami, but he’s coming back from an injury that kept him off the field for several weeks. The Brazilian has appeared in the Red Bulls’ last two starting line-ups.
Cásseres Jr. has recorded a goal or an assist in four-straight matches, which ties the longest streak by a New York player this season. What’s impressive is that he also flew to South America to join his National Team in the middle of this streak.
D.C. Coming into Match After Suffering 6-0 Loss
Although D.C. won the last match against New York, they’re currently going through a low-point of their season.
United haven’t won a match since September 29, and they will head into Wednesday’s match after suffering a 6-0 loss against NYCFC.
Their home record this season is 10-4-1.
