KEYS TO THE GAME, pres. by Honda: New York Red Bulls vs. Montreal Impact

The New York Red Bulls (3-4-2, 11 pts) host the Montreal Impact (5-4-2, 17 pts) on Wednesday at Red Bull Arena to wrap-up the three-match homestand. Opening kick is slated for 8 p.m. ET with coverage on MSG, MSG Go and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.

Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by Honda

Score First

The New York Red Bulls are 1-0-1 when scoring first this season (Draw at Columbus, Win vs. LA Galaxy).

In 2018, New York was 21-2-2 when scoring first in MLS regular season play.

The Red Bulls will look to pounce early on Montreal to take hold of the match early. 

Midweek Mix

With a midweek game as a stretch of three games in eight days, the Red Bulls could look to mix up the Starting XI and roster for the Wednesday night match at Red Bull Arena.

With Kaku returning from suspension, fans could also see Vincent Bezecourt, Omir Fernandez or Andreas Ivan get starting nods.

Roll On

The Red Bulls are carrying a two-game winning streak into Wednesday's game and looking to run it up to three against the visitors from the north.

The Red Bulls have won the last two matchups against the Impact at Red Bull Arena in regular season play, 3-1 and 4-0, respectively.
