THE OTHER SIDE: What You Need to Know About FC Cincinnati Ahead of Game Two


Get to know who the Red Bulls will be playing in their upcoming matchup with The Other Side:

How They’re Doing

The Supporters’ Shield winners got their quest for the cup off to the perfect start at home on Sunday night, beating the Red Bulls 3-0.

That was their 14th home win in MLS competitions this season.

They will now look to close out the series with what would be their third win at Red Bull Arena this season.

Head-to-Head History

New York and Cincinnati are tied in their head-to-head history with a record of 6-6-3.

In their last meeting, goals from Frankie Amaya and Elias Manoel saw the Red Bulls kick their playoff push into high gear with a 2-1 win at TQL Stadium.

The home team won its first matchup between these two teams in the last ten meetings.

Cincinnati is now 2-0-0 against New York in the MLS playoffs.

Player to Watch- Midfielder Álvaro Barreal

Along with Luciano Acosta, Barreal presented a lot of problems for the Red Bulls on Sunday night at TQL stadium.

The Argentinian midfielder now has seven goals and nine assists across all MLS competitions this season. His goal against New York opened the scoring in the first half, with his second goal putting the final nail in the coffin on Sunday night.

If the Red Bulls want to continue their season, Barreal can’t have a similar performance.
