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

The New York Red Bulls (5-5-3, 18 pts.) travel to FC Cincinnati (3-8-2, 11 pts.) for a Saturday night matchup, kicking off at 7:30 p.m. ET.

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

Rotation Reset

With seven new starters in the XI versus their previous match, the New York Red Bulls will come into Cincinnati well rested.

Tim Parker will come in with just a half hour of action under his belt of late, as he was sent off with a red card vs. Atlanta United.

White Hot

Brian White will enter the match with two goals -- and forcing a third via an own goal -- in his last three matches.

White logged 80 minutes vs. Vancouver and 55 minutes vs. Atlanta coming into the match against Cincy.

Sweep City

The Red Bulls will be looking to take the season series vs. FC Cincinnati, already besting the rookie club in their first matchup, 1-0, at Red Bull Arena.

New York has had previous success in Cincinnati, besting the then-USL side in the 2017 U.S. Open Cup Semifinals.
