The New York Red Bulls face DC United Sunday in a sold out MLS match at Red Bull Arena at 7 p.m. ET (TV: NBC Sports Network). The sold out game is a chance for the Red Bulls (8-4-3) to move into first place. They currently stand in third, just three points behind first place United. A two goal win, then, would see them move into the conference lead.
The Red Bulls have faced DC United once already this season, a bitter 4-1 loss back in April. United is coming in on a four game win streak, while the Red Bulls most recently managed a loss and a draw in a two-game road swing. Playing at home bodes well for the Red Bulls' chances. They're 4-0-2 while playing in front of their own fans.
