KEYS TO THE GAME, pres. by Honda: FC Dallas vs. New York Red Bulls

The New York Red Bulls (3-5-2, 11 points) head to Texas to take on FC Dallas (5-3-2, 17 points) for a Saturday afternoon match. The 2 p.m. ET game will be available on Univision, as well as in Twitter, in English. New York Red Bulls Radio will have the call, starting with a preview show at 1 p.m. ET.

Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by Honda:

Flash Forward

The Red Bulls started Tom Barlow up top just hours after inking him to an MLS deal in their midweek matchup.

With Bradley Wright-Phillips and Brian White both nursing injuries, Barlow or Mathias Jørgensen -- or both -- could see the starting nod against Dallas.

Long Shot

Aaron Long was forced to leave New York's last match with an apparent hamstring injury.

The Red Bulls could turn to back to a two-centerback look, with Tim Parker and Amro Tarek, or bring in Sean Nealis to start against Dallas.

Down Dallas

The Red Bulls have put up 4-0 and 3-0 results against FC Dallas the last two times the team from Texas visited Red Bull Arena.

When the Red Bulls head to the Lone Star State, New York has picked up two draws in the last two matches, 0-0 in 2015 and 2-2 in 2017.
