Five Remaining

The Red Bulls are looking to shore up their Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs positioning with five game remaining in their regular season schedule.

New York kicks off the final stretch with Seattle Sounders FC and Portland Timbers FC within five days, looking to grab points on the road.

Limping In

Both clubs enter the matchup at CenturyLink Field with two wins over their last seven games.

The Sounders, currently in third in the Western Conference, are 9-2-3 at home this season. New York is 4-7-3 on the road.

Rested & Ready

New York has not played a match since August 31, though many players have been away on international duty during the break in action.

The Red Bulls will look to get back in the win column, welcoming back players from their respective national teams and syncing up with the squad that trained together for the past two weeks.
