The Red Bulls hit the road for back-to-back league games for the first time in 2019 and are scheduled to do it three more times. New York picked up at least three points in four of six back-to-back road trips and finished with a 6-3-4 mark. The Red Bulls are 0-1-1 away from Red Bull Arena with a 1-1 draw at Columbus and a 1-0 loss to Chicago.
19-year-old Venezuelan midfielder Cristian Cásseres, Jr. recorded his first career MLS goal against Minnesota United on Saturday.
