New York continues to have strong performance after strong performance, as they are unbeaten through the first five matches (4-0-1) of 2018 across all competitions. During their unbeaten stretch, the Red Bulls are 1-0-1 on the road with a plus-2 goal differential (3 GF;1 GA).
 
Bradley Wright-Phillips has had a hot start to 2018 and will look to carry that into Saturday's match.

In 140 MLS regular season matches, BWP has scored against 18 of the 21 MLS teams that he has faced, having not scored against Atlanta, LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake.

Head coach Jesse Marsch is in his fourth season with the Red Bulls and sits with an overall mark of 49-31-23 at the club. Marsch is the only coach in franchise history to start a fourth season and looks to become the first coach in franchise history to reach 50 MLS regular season wins.
