New York will look to build upon their last two wins with a road trip to Colorado. The Red Bulls have strung together back-to-back league wins for the first time this season and aim for three consecutive wins for the first time since July of 2017. During the stretch, New York has tallied their fifth and sixth three-plus goal performances.
The Red Bulls have scored at least three goals in six or more league matches during head coach Jesse Marsch's first four seasons at the helm. Before Marsch, New York tallied at least three goals in six or more league matches just 12 times before. In 2018, the Red Bulls have attained this feat in the shortest number of matches (8) in franchise history. Bradley Wright-Phillips has been the catalyst for New York's offense as he has strung together four consecutive matches with at least one point and leading the team in goals (6) and second in assists (4). Over the last four matches, Wright-Phillips has tallied nine points on three goals and three assists.
New York aim to buck their trend at Colorado's Dick's Sporting Goods Park since it was built in 2007. The Red Bulls have won just once in the last seven matches (1-5-1) and have been outscored, 17-4, in Commerce City, Colorado. In 2018, New York is 1-2-0 on the road as all three have been one-goal games.
New York remains on the road as they travel to Atlanta next weekend. The Red Bulls and Atlanta United FC clash in a Sunday night nationally broadcast match at 7 p.m. ET on FS1, Fox Sports Go and New York Red Bulls Radio in English on TuneIn.
