The Red Bulls will try to pull off a miracle when they will try avoid elimination from the Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals against Santos Laguna Tuesday night.

Facing a two-goal deficit after a 2-0 home defeat in the opening leg last week, the Red Bulls need to beat the Mexican side 2-0 to force a shootout or win by three goals.

The second leg kicks off at Estadio Corona at 9 p.m. ET (Unvision Deportes, YahooSports.com and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.

Major League Soccer teams have found it quite difficult producing wins in Mexico in the competition through the years, although it is not impossible.

In fact, New York will look to replicate its success in Mexico from last season.

In 2018, striker Bradley Wright-Phillips recorded a brace and Luis Robles made 13 saves at Club Tijuana in the SCCL quarterfinals. Wright-Phillips, who hasn’t scored in three matches this year, had only one drought of five games without goal, while scoring at least one goal within three games during 42 matches played last season.

The Red Bulls were held scoreless at Red Bull Arena for the first time since May 26, 2018, spanning 15 matches across all competitions. They held advantages over Santos in shots, 14-10, shots on goal, 6-4 and corner kicks, 7-0. The last time New York was blanked at RBA by a Mexican squad (Chivas, 0-0; April 10, 2018), it bounced back four days later with 3-1 win over the Montreal Impact.

The team bounced back from a loss with a positive result every time in 2018. In 44 matches last season, New York lost back-to-back matches only once across all competitions. The Red Bulls were 7-1-3 after a loss and had six three-goal performances following a loss.

The Red Bulls will open their MLS regular season against the San Jose Earthquakes at RBA Saturday at 3 p.m.
