||DID YOU KNOW?|
- New York will be the more rested side in this match, as New England had a game Wednesday, which ended in a 1-1 draw at home to Houston.
The Red Bulls experienced a disappointing 2-2 draw at home against Eastern Conference bottom side Chicago last weekend. Thierry Henry scored to re-take the Golden Boot lead with 12 goals.
- Revs goalkeeper Matt Reis will miss this match after receiving a red card at the end of Wednesday's match for what referee Michael Kennedy said was "offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures."
