The New York Red Bulls have just won two games in a row. One win against the worst team in Major League Soccer and another against CD FAS, a Salvadorian powerhouse who pose a threat to absolutely nobody. Not exactly what we'd call a winning streak, but in this up and down season, we'll take what we can get. This Sunday, our boys in white look to continue the success down in Washington where they'll take on their oldest and fiercest rivals, DC United. Currently holding down the #1 spot in the Eastern Conference and just two points shy of the leading Supporter's Shield position, DCU has been having a dynamite season. Getting three points in Washington won't be easy, but may be necessary.
Here's what we know:
- EJ is back (literally) and Espindola is back (figuratively).
- Dax is playing like his old self again.
- BWP is going to have a tough go of it.
Here's what we don't know:
- Can the Red Bulls win this game?
