Know Your Enemy: New York Red Bulls

Philadelphia Union will travel to Harrison, New Jersey on Saturday for a classic rivalry matchup against New York Red Bulls. It'll be the fourth road match this month for the Union, but the first time the two meet this season, with kick off set for 7:00 p.m. ET on PHL17. Below is everything you need to know about RBNY:

Team: New York Red Bulls
Venue: Red Bull Arena — Harrison, New Jersey
Kick Off: 7:00 p.m. ET on PHL17
Record: 7-3-0, Fourth in Eastern Conference
Last Meeting: Nil-nil draw at Red Bull Arena on September 17, 2017
Starting XI From Previous Match: Ryan Meara — Michael Murillo, Tim Parker, Aaron Long, Kemar Lawrence — Sean Davis, Tyler Adams — Florian Valot, Kaku, Danny Royer — Bradley Wright-Phillips
Player to Watch: Bradley Wright-Phillips

Red Bulls greatest threat to the Union is the always dangerous Bradley Wright-Phillips. The two-time Golden Boot winner, alongside Atlanta United forward Josef Martinez and Columbus Crew SC's Gyasi Zardes, leads the league this season in goals scored with eight. The Red Bulls striker is coming off a tremendous performance against Atlanta where he earned himself a brace, scoring back to back goals in the 51st and 55th minute to help New York seal their third road win of the season. When the club travels to Red Bull Arena Saturday, the Union defense will need to keep a close tab on Wright-Phillips and keep him off the board.
