The New York Red Bulls are red hot after finishing off FC Cincinnati as they continued their five-match unbeaten streak. So far, they have earned three wins and two draws while scoring eight goals and allowing two. Carlos Coronel has picked up three clean sheets during this fantastic run and in the last game, the birthday boy Andrew Gutman got his own present by scoring the match-winner at the TQL Stadium.
But now, the Red Bulls will turn their attention to this coming Saturday as the club will once again face Inter Miami to attempt a continuation of their unbeaten streak and to pick up points for this game at hand.
Back on Saturday, July 17 the original date for this match that was supposed to be played was washed out with the tropical storms moving up from the eastern coast of Florida and dumping over significant amounts of rain and lightning striking overhead of Red Bull Arena, that it was deemed to be too dangerous to play the match.
Now, during the international break, the rescheduled date is this coming Saturday, October 9 at 6 PM, which means Inter Miami are starting to lick their chops after what they experienced from this young and hungry Red Bulls side about over two weeks ago. A four-goal soul-crushing loss in front of their supporters down at Dry Pink Stadium in Fort Lauderdale.
Goals by Patryk Klimala, Omir Fernandez and two from Fabio which were scored in the second half took down the high-priced south Floridian side, and we all know that manager Phil Neville was not happy about that performance from his side at all. We all know that revenge will be on the minds of Inter Miami and it's up to this Red Bulls side to make sure that their guests won't be successful.
"Right now we have the chance to get another result and another good performance against this team. This will be a completely different game than it was when we were away, I think they will come for the points as well," said Gerhart Struber. "Right now they need the points so they can try and qualify for the playoffs like us."
"This is a big chance for us with a big attitude and big energy to make it difficult for them, with our style of play and get to this direction with our power and control of the ball, we have big dreams for us and the big possibilities for us. This is my focus for the game and hopes to pull it off."
As we remember back at the road match against Inter Miami after Klimala converted the opening goal, the next attacking run towards the Miami net he was tackled down harshly by Leandro Gonzalez Pires, as he was booked and it caused a giant angry group of Red Bulls to go after him, as Pires also taunted down at Klimala as well.
"We are going to put a goal past them again, that is what we are expecting to do. We can't worry about them having their feelings hurt, we know they have a very good team and they have been playing better since we defeated them down there. We need to continue to play at our best," said Tom Edwards.
Red Bulls Ready to Defend Red Bull Arena
The players know that they are going to have a target on their backs, as inter Miami is going to try and steal points at Red Bull Arena. All the kids need to do is remain calm and continuing their success just like it got started down in Fort Lauderdale on this five-match unbeaten streak.
