  DID YOU KNOW?
  • These teams split their first two meetings this year. However, D.C. dominates the all-time record, racking up 31 wins to New York's 20 (and seven draws).
  • Recent history favors the Red Bulls. New York claimed the Atlantic Cup the past two seasons. Prior to 2012, NY won its last two visits to RFK Stadium by an aggregate 6-0 scoreline.
  • Facing five games in a 13 day stretch, D.C. fielded a weakened lineup against the Montreal Impact last weekend and was duly spanked with a 3-0 loss. United is fifth in the East with 40 points.
  • Also last weekend, New York drew 1-1 with Sporting Kansas City in a top-of-the-table clash. The Red Bulls remain second in the East, on 45 points.
  • New York hasn't won away from Red Bull Arena in seven matches. Its last road win was on May 19, at Montréal.
