Two of Major League Soccer’s top teams square off in Harrison, where the New York Red Bulls have completed five of their seven wins, and FC Dallas arrives having won four straight in a seven-match unbeaten streak.

The Red Bulls have won six of the last 10 league meetings against FC Dallas (1L-3D). They have kept clean sheets in half of those matches, per Opta.

New York Red Bulls   

A year after reaching the U.S. Open Cup Final for the second time in club history in 2017, the Red Bulls (8-4-2) lost to the Philadelphia Union, 2-1, Saturday night at Talen Energy Stadium in the Round of 16.

After falling in a two-goal hole early in the second half, Bradley Wright-Phillips came off the bench to pull the Red Bulls to within a goal in the 77th minute. But they were unable to score the equalizer as New York ended a stretch of five games in 15 days with a defeat.

“Sometimes you say the break is mental. This break is physical,” Jesse Marsch said. “This team needs some time to recover and regenerate. The mental part is a piece of it too, but this team physically needs some rest.”

FC Dallas

FC Dallas (8-1-5) might be moving up the Supporters' Shield standings — currently four points behind leaders Atlanta United — but their run in the Open Cup came to an end following a 3-2 loss to defending champions Sporting Kansas City Saturday night.

Carlos Gruezo gave Dallas an early lead, but Daniel Salloi responded with a brace to put Sporting in front in the 66th minute. Roland Lamah leveled 11 minutes later, but Yohan Croizet scored the dramatic 89th-minute winner for SKC.

“Obviously disappointed with the end after such a good game we played and scored two goals in a difficult place,” Oscar Pareja said after the game. “We tied the game in a moment when we were putting a lot of things together and finishing strong.”
