DID YOU KNOW?
  • Going by head-to-head records and points, there's very little to choose between these sides. Colorado has 15 wins to New York's 14 (five draws) all-time, and New York has two more points (29) this season after 21 games.

  • Of course New York boasts a far larger international profile, owing in a large part to its Designated Players. New signing Frank Rost will be in the net for his second match, though Rafael Marquez misses out due to injury.
  • The far bigger injury blow was Conor Casey, who injured his Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season. Caleb Folan should replace him in the starting XI.
  • The Red Bulls are winless in their last eight away matches.
  • Colorado is the reigning MLS Cup champion.
