The New York Red Bulls started this season on a major upswing, considering their raucous offseason. The team jumped out to a 3-win, 4-draw unbeaten streak but have found the last couple weeks a bit tougher. After a 2-0 defeat to a weak Philadelphia Union and a last-gasp loss in stoppage time against Seattle, RBNY arrive in Houston on their third consecutive road match, looking to find their footing.
Houston, conversely, managed a 1-1 draw in New York City on an excellent reaction strike from Will Bruin. That puts the Dynamo on 7 points in their last four matches, trying to reclaim ground from a poor homestand in April and May. Bruin, for his efforts, has been rewarded with four goals in his last four starts. As he continues to relish his minutes alongside the flash of Giles Barnes, Bruin is beginning to prove his influence on a team that seems to have found a rhythm.
The Houston Dynamo host New York Red Bulls on Friday, June 5th at 8:00PM CDT. Tickets are available at HoustonDynamo.com and - don't forget - this is the first match where METRORail service will be operational. The match will be broadcast on Unimas. English available via SAP button on your remote.
