Match preview

Will New York Red Bulls move top of the Eastern Conference, for 26 hours or so at least?

On Thursday night, Gerhard Struber's side pulled off a remarkable comeback against Atlanta United in New Jersey.

Lewis Morgan equalised from the penalty spot just seven minutes from time, before 16 year old Serge Ngoma fired home an 89th minute winner.

The latter means RBNY have had three different 16 year olds score for them, the first club to achieve this in MLS.

The Red Bulls have now alternated between winning and losing in the last seven, also beating D.C. United, TFC and NYCFC in Harrison.

On the road, New York have lost their last three matches, last claiming three points on the road in Chicago in April.

This is concerning ahead of their U.S. Open Cup semi-final which will be away from home against Orlando later this month.

Back in MLS, the Red Bulls are currently second in the east, level on points with leaders CF Montréal who aren't in action until Monday night.

Here, roared on by their home fans, can Sporting Kansas City claim three points as they seek to climb the standings?

The Wizards finished as the best in the west in both 2018 and 2020, but are currently 13th, just one point clear of rock bottom San Jose.

Peter Vermes' men were last in action eight days ago, getting swatted aside 3-0 by Seattle Sounders at Lumen Field.

So, SKC have now lost three of their last four, only beating Colorado and Nashville since 26 March.

However, Sporting Kansas City are also still in U.S. Open Cup contention; they'll visit second-tier Sacramento Republic in their upcoming semi.

This could be a dress-rehearsal for September's final but who will claim three important points at Children's Mercy Park?
