July 31, 2019
The New York Red Bulls will play Toronto FC once again in the MLS on Saturday night (Aug 3) at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison (New Jersey).
These two teams played each other just a few weeks ago, with Toronto running out 3-1 winners at BMO Field. Jozy Altidore and Alejandro Pozuelo gave the Reds a two-goal cushion within the opening 30-minutes, with Ashtone Morgan adding a third goal after Tom Barlow had briefly got the Red Bulls back into the game.
New York Red Bulls vs Toronto FC Recent Form
The Red Bulls come into this game on the back of last week’s 3-2 loss at home to lowly Columbus Crew. It was the fourth time in their last 6 games that they have conceded 3 or more goals.
An eighth goal of the season from Brian White gave the NY Red Bulls an early lead against the Crew, but they then fell 2-1 behind before Danny Royer converted a penalty to draw them level. A late goal for Crew would prove decisive in condemning the Red Bulls to defeat though.
Toronto had a 2-1 win at home to struggling FC Cincinnati last Saturday, to move to within a point of the playoff line in the very competitive Eastern Conference. It was their third victory in their last 4 games.
Goals from Nick DeLeon and an excellent strike from Altidore put Toronto in control, before the visitors got a foothold in the game.
