  DID YOU KNOW?
  • New England has scored just one goal this season, the fewest of any team in MLS. It also has the stingiest defense, having allowed just two.
  • Despite the lack of goals, New England has collected five points from as many games, good enough to be off the bottom of the Eastern Conference in eighth place.
  • This will be New York's third game in the space of a week. The Red Bulls beat D.C. United at RFK on Saturday before losing at home to Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday.
  • Red Bulls striker Thierry Henry has taken 32 shots so far this season, more than any other player in MLS.
  • New York midfielder Juninho will be suspended for this match after picking up a red card against Sporting Kansas City for deliberately kicking a dead ball at opposing goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen.
