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

Rested & Ready

The New York Red Bulls rotated 10 of 11 players for their match against FC Dallas, with only Amro Tarek starting from their previous match against Montreal Impact. 

Sean Davis, Omir Fernandez and Tim Parker eventually entered the match, with Davis playing 72 minutes for an injured Vincent Bezecourt.

Home Advantage

The Red Bulls are averaging 1.7 goals at home in 2019, while Atlanta is scoring 1.0 goals on the road.

New York has only been shutout once at Red Bull Arena this season, while Atlanta have been held off the scoresheet twice on the road this year.

Twelve different players have scored for the Red Bulls this season, with Daniel Royer, Alex Muyl, Brian White and Cristian Casseres Jr. scoring a pair each, so far. 

Atlanta has four goals from two players (Josef Martinez and Ezequiel Barco), but just three other players have scored for Atlanta United in 2019.
