Last Meet with MLS Champs for NYRB with Toronto Saturday.

By Sean McCaffery, September 20, 2018

The current 2nd place team faces the reigning champs @ 5 in RBA, the champs have a very real chance of missing the playoffs and Giovenco suffered at least a bit of an injury last night facing Tigres.  As ever, coverages are by MSG, MSG GO, New York Red Bulls Radio and in Spanish on TuneIn. 4:30 kicks off coverage for Honda Red Bulls Game Night, play by play man, Steve Cangialosi with Shep Messing and Michelle Gringas. Half an hour earlier, NYRB Radio turns on with hosts Matt Harmon & Steve Jolley, Ernesto Motta takes the baton at 5 en Espanol. Hosting the title holders for the first time since the 2017 MLS Cup Eastern Semis where TFC emerged the victor via a game winning restart from the injured but I am sure will play, Sebastian @ 72'. July 1 saw RBNY gain independance from this loss with Kemar Lawrence getting the sole goal at 4' and captain Luis Robles notching yet another shutout with 8 saves to his credit. NYRB have yet to lose back to back games having a 5-0-2 record in their games following their rare losses. Only the first place Atlanta United have also not lost 2 in a row. 

Bradley Wright-Phillips struck 3x v DC United in the 3-3 tie including a bicycle kick, getting him the 5th hat trick of his MLS career, now tied for 2nd in that category. He has not been held scoreless for 3 straight games yet this year with no signs of slowing down. He has found the net in 15 out of 28 games with 3 games of more than 1 goal.
