Here are the Keys to the Game, presented by Honda

Midweek Matchup

The New York Red Bulls are in the midst of a six-game month, and playing their second Wednesday night match in this 30-day span.

Just as they rotated 10 of 11 players for their game against FC Dallas, the Red Bulls could see a lot of players in and out of the lineup as they take on the Vancouver Whitecaps on $1 hot dog night.

Felipe, Formerly

Midfielder Felipe will make his first return to Red Bull Arena since he was dealt in the deal to acquire Tim Parker from Vancouver.

Felipe played 100 matches for the Red Bulls over the three seasons in New York, scoring 10 goals and 17 assists. He has one goal and seven assists in 38 matches with the Whitecaps.

Draft Impact

New York's last three goals have all come from MLS SuperDraft picks.

Sean Nealis (2019), Brian White and Tom Barlow (2018) have scored the last three goals for the Red Bulls in their two-game winning streak.
