Get to know who the Red Bulls will be playing in their upcoming matchup.
How they’re doing
After only picking up one point in their first four MLS matches, Montréal has put together a stellar season that sees them in second place in the Eastern Conference.
They are unbeaten in their last eight and haven’t lost a match at Stade Saputo since the beginning of July.
They’ve scored 49 goals so far this season, which is fourth-best in the league.
In 27 total matches, Montréal and New York have evenly split the series, 12-12-3.
The series, however, has heavily favored the home side. The Red Bulls have only won once on the road against Montréal, a 2-1 victory on May 5, 2012.
The last time New York took a point from a road match at Montréal was 2015. In the last six meetings, the Red Bulls have only scored once.
Player to Watch- Forward Romell Quioto
The Montréal has been a breakout star, and has been one of the major reasons behind their successful season so far.
Quioto has 15 goals and four assists in 25 appearances so far this season. He also leads the team with 63 total scoring attempts.
Before this season, Quioto’s previous goal-scoring high for a season was eight in 2021.
In his last four appearances, Quioto has tallied six total goals for a Montréal team that has scored two or more goals in six of their last seven matches.
