The Red Bulls certainly will have their hands full at Exploria Stadium Saturday night.

They will meet one of the hottest teams in MLS in Orlando City SC.

The Red Bulls (4-5-1, 13 points) conclude their three-game road trip at Orlando City (6-1-3, 21 points) at 7:30 p.m. The Lions are undefeated (3-0-2) at home. In contrast, New York is 0-4-1 on the road.

The match will be the 15th MLS regular season game between New York and Orlando with the Red Bulls holding an advantage in the series at 7-5-2. Since suffering their first loss of the season to New York May 29, Orlando City SC is on a three-match winning streak, outscoring its opponents, 10-4. The Red Bulls snapped Orlando’s six-game road losing streak (including playoffs), dating to the end of last season. It was New York’s longest skid away from home since losing nine straight road games from April to July 2009.

“I think it is a tough game on Saturday in Orlando,” Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber said. “We realize the whole roster from Orlando is on a very good level, from the tactical and especially the technical side. They also have some outstanding key players like Nani or Daryl Dike.”

Dike, who scored nine goals in 21 games for Barnsley in the English Championship, tallied twice for the Lions in their 5-0 win over the San Jose Earthquakes last week.

“He showed us in the last months in the Championship in England. His big abilities in depth on the ball and always off the ball,” Struber said.

City’s most recent fixture resulted in a come-from-behind 2-1 victory at intrastate foes Inter Miami CF last Friday. Gonzalo Higuaín gave the home side the lead in the 67th minute, only to be answered six minutes later from a first-time volley from Chris Mueller off a Nani cross. The captain then took matters into his own hands in the 81st with a game-winning strike from outside the area for his sixth goal of the season.

Nani’s six goals on the year are good for the team lead, followed by Tesho Akindele with three. Mueller and Akindele share the team high in assists on the year, each with four.

“Another game and certainly a good rival too that gave us some difficulties when we played at their place. [It’s] a great opportunity for us to keep adding points, but most importantly getting involved players that have not been with us lately,” Orlando City head coach Oscar Pareja said. “About the [New York] Red Bulls, we know their ways and I’m sure they know ours. We’re aiming to, as always, to be protagonists of the game and be aggressive and a team who is aiming to score goals in the way that we have and bring the victory again. We’re getting ready, but we know the opposition and we know as well that it’s not going to be an easy game.”

New York’s 0-0 draw against Atlanta United FC was the Red Bulls’ first road shutout since Oct. 10, 2020. Goalkeeper Carlos Coronel recorded his fourth shutout of the season, tied for first in MLS. New York has earned four shutouts in 10 matches this season, after only tallying five in 23 matches in 2020.

Following Saturday’s match, New York will begin a two-match homestand starting with the Philadelphia Union on Thursday, June 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
