GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (March 23, 2018) - With back-to-back wins and its first-ever winning record in MLS, Minnesota United heads east this week to visit New York Red Bulls. The Red Bulls have been on a tear through the CONCACAF Champions League, knocking off Liga MX’s Club Tijuana in the quarterfinals 5-1 on aggregate, but the club struggled to shake off the effects of that midweek match with a 1-0 loss to Real Salt Lake last week. MNUFC will get no such advantage, as it will face a rested Red Bulls squad in a match that kicks off on Saturday, March 24 at 6:00 p.m. CT, with pre-match coverage beginning at 5:30 p.m. on FOX Sports GO and MNUFC Radio on 1500 ESPN.
