New York Red Bulls
Manager Jessie Marsch has been mixing things up lately and it is having success on the pitch.
There is every expectation that he will continue to be creative with such an important match on Sunday.
The Red Bulls have won their last three on the road, it has been more than 10 years (2002) since they won four in a row outside of Gotham. Key to their recent success has been the play of Daniel Royer.
He scored in all four of their July matches tallying an MLS leading 6 goals overall.
To say that the Red Bulls were hot in July might be underscoring it. They won all of their matches by a combined score of 15-3. That is the kind of play that is going to put heat on the teams above them in the standings like NYCFC.
The Red Bulls won their last match in the series 1-0 in the US Open Cup.
In contrast to the Red Bulls NYC FC comes limping into this one after losing their last game to Toronto FC.
While there is no shame in losing to the top team in the league, the 4-0 result was embarrassing. In regular season play NYC has beaten the Red Bulls earlier this season 2-0.
FC is coached by Patrick Vieira and has has instituted an attacking style. Even after getting clean sheeted by Toronto they are among just three teams that have scored 40 or more goals this season.
David Villa continues to lead the attack with 14 goals. The reigning MVP will definitely be in the conversation once again thanks to 14 goals.
He was shutout last week against Toronto but prior to that had scored in 4 straight. He and Jack Harrison have formed a nice scoring duo. Harrison has already doubled his scoring output from this rookie season.
NYC FC is playing catchup in the New York derby. They have only beaten the Red Bulls twice in 7 tries. If they lose this one they will be behind their rivals in the standings.
