Following two disappointing results on the road, the Red Bulls are excited for the chance to bounce back in a high-energy game against the LA Galaxy.
“The last two years, and especially last year, the game had massive energy,” Marsch said. “We’ll be excited for it. I think our team’s anxious to get back on the field because we’re so disappointed with what happened in Philly that we want to get back home and get our winning streak back going again.”
Luis Robles agreed, saying that whenever New York takes on the Galaxy, it means they’re facing one of the best clubs with some of the best players in MLS.
“It usually means we’re playing against some of the best talent in the league,” Robles said. “This team is a little different, but nonetheless there’s some talent there. And we know that if we don’t come with the right sort of mentality and effort, it doesn’t matter where we’re playing, they’re going to give us a hard game.”
New York leads the all-time series against LA Galaxy with an 18-16-8 record, and is 12-7-3 as the home team.
The Red Bulls have not lost at Red Bull Arena since April 2016 and hope to take advantage at their home pitch again on Sunday.
“We know that we have a big opportunity because we’re at Red Bull Arena, going up against a team that is in a similar situation than us,” Robles said. “We know that we have to capitalize right now because we are coming off of two losses and we have to right the ship.”
