The New York Red Bulls begin Atlantic Cup play Sunday night, when they visit the DC United at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C. (6 p.m. ET on ESPN2). The Red Bulls (4-2-1) will be searching to keep their unbeaten streak alive, as they're 3-0-1 in their last four games, while the United are 2-0-3 in their last five matches.
Last Saturday, the Red Bulls salvaged a 2-2 tie with the San Jose Earthquakes and earned a point in its fourth straight contest. New York's recent success can be credited to Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper who have each scored 14 of the Red Bulls 16 goals this season. Henry has earned MLS Player of the Week honors already three times this season.
Meanwhile, the United are 2-2-3 overall and are looking to claim its first Atlantic Cup title in three seasons. This will be the first of three meetings between the two clubs, as they will both meet again on June 24 and Aug. 29.
