The New York Red Bulls head north this weekend to play the Montreal Impact for the third and likely final time this season. In their first meeting back in March, the Red Bulls fell behind twice in the first half but took control behind a Thierry Henry hat trick to win 5-2. New York then traveled to Montreal to play on the
carpet hardwood floor pit of spikes from Super Mario Brothers turf at Olympic Stadium on May 19. Despite the send off of Victor Palsson for a second yellow card ten minutes into the second half, the Red Bulls were able to pull off a 2-1 victory.
Since the game on Saturday will be played on grass at the Impact's new Stade Saputo, Thierry Henry will be looking to repeat his impressive three-goal performance from March to help keep the Red Bulls atop the Eastern Conference standings and in the hunt for the Supporters' Shield.
