MLS Preview: New York Red Bulls (2-4-6) at Toronto FC (2-4-6)

The New York Red Bulls have lost only one of their 10 matches against Toronto FC since the start of the 2018 season (W7 D2). New York Red Bulls have scored in its last 16 matches against Toronto FC (including playoffs), the longest scoring streak for the Red Bulls and run of games without a clean sheet for Toronto FC in each club’s MLS history.

After a run of five straight unbeaten at BMO Field (W2 D3), Toronto FC has lost consecutive home matches in all competitions. The Toronto FC Reds haven’t lost three straight home matches in all competitions since a five-match losing streak in March-May 2012.

The New York Red Bulls have won each of their first matches under Troy Lesesne in all competitions, including a Hudson River Derby win over New York City FC on Saturday. Lesesne is the second coach in the New York Red Bulls history to win his first two matches in charge of the club, after Hans Backe in 2010.

The two shots Toronto FC attempted against CF Montreal Impact on Saturday were its fewest in any league match since 2010. It also equaled the fewest by any team in a match this season (Atlanta United FC at Columbus Crew SC in March and Portland Timbers at Vancouver Whitecaps FC in April).

The New York Red Bulls held 31.5 percent possession in their win over New York City FC on Saturday, the seventh time since the start of the 2021 season that the New York Red Bulls has won a match while holding less than 33.0 percent of the ball. No other team has more than four such wins in that time.
