Goal lovers are in store for a treat when MLS scoring leaders New York Red Bulls (45 goals scored) host a leaky New England Revolution defense that has allowed the most goals (46 goals allowed) in league play this season on Sunday, Aug. 28 (2:30 p.m. ET, ESPN/ESPN Deportes). The Red Bulls enter with one of the most dynamic attacking duos in MLS as Bradley Wright-Phillips, the club’s all-time leading goal scorer, ranks second in MLS with 15 goals, and Sacha Kljestan claims a league-leading 15 assists.
New England’s quest to make a fourth consecutive MLS postseason takes a crucial turn at Red Bull Arena. While the Revs (26 points, 6-11-8 record) are in a battle for the final playoff spot sitting two points out of contention, their I-95 rivals are looking to claim the top spot in the Eastern Conference for the second consecutive year. NYRB holds an impressive 9-2-1 record at home behind its potent attack and will look to continue its exploits in the matchup.
