KEYS TO THE GAME, pres. by Honda: New York Red Bulls vs. Philadelphia Union

The New York Red Bulls (12-13-5, 41 pts) kick off their two-match homestand with the Philadelphia Union (15-8-7, 52 pts) on Sunday at Red Bull Arena. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. EST with coverage on MSG, MSG Go and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.

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

Roll Royer

Daniel Royer has taken over the helm of the top scorer for New York, smashing in his 10th goal of the year against Portland Timbers FC.

The Red Bulls will look to keep Royer rolling against Philadelphia.

Three Remaining

With just three regular season games remaining before the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs, New York will need "three points" from a loss by Montreal and Chicago, and either a loss or draw from Orlando. Or, if none of that goes their way, just three points from a win over the Union. Full scenario breakdown here.

UPDATE: The New York Red Bulls have clinched a spot in the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs.

Set The Level

New York put in a strong effort against Seattle, but couldn't come away with points. Against Portland, they picked up three points on the road.

With only three Eastern Conference matchups remaining before the postseason tournament, New York needs to get into a groove.
