Red Bulls Host Left Coast 'Caps

By Sean McCaffery, May 21, 2019

You may see Felipe as you nosh on $1 hot dogs and if a college student a $10 ticket tomorrow. Yes the winners of the last 4 out of 5 and finally finding their form, NY team will be inhospitable hosts to the 3-6-4 Whitecaps as they hope to melt them in RBA one day from today. Like always, the NYRB Radio show begins @ 7 p.m. with Countdown to Kickoff, by Honda with Matt Harmon & Steve Jolley, En Espanol with Ernesto Motta from 7:30 with the play-by-play. This is the 10th meet between these teams with the 'Caps ahead, the score, 3-2-4 but NY is set to gore them to even the series up, as they are on a 2-0-1 tear facing them, meanwhile they still hold the distinction of being the sole MLS team with a winning record at the fortress of RBA as Vancouver stands at 2-1-2 over all games. Are NY the Beast of the East, maybe, they have a ridiculous record against the Western Conf., 13-2-2 a crazy goal differential, +22, have hit for at least two goals a bakers dozen times with 3 shutouts. This year despite not yet finding their stride, NY holds sway with a pair of wins facing playoff teams and overall 3-1-1. Daniel Royer, more renowned for his shooting is tops in assists on the team with 4 in MLS and 5 overall, 3 have been game winners in the last 4 wins for his side, the long distance assist for the man down Men in Red was a work of art to Barlow. Another fast turn around for Red Bull as they then have the 3rd game in 6 days off in CIncy.
