HARRISON, N.J. - The New York Red Bulls (9-7-4, 31 pts) hit the road for back-to-back matches, beginning with Toronto FC (7-8-5, 26 pts) on Wednesday at BMO Field. Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. EST with coverage on MSG+, MSG Go, TSN and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.

Despite injuries and International play, New York is supporting the second-best record over the last 10 games (6-2-2) to move into third place in the Eastern Conference. The Red Bulls have outscored their opponents, 22-15, and have tallied three shutouts in their last 10 matches. New York recently defeated archrival NYCFC, 2-1 to improve to 4-6-0 in one-goal games.

New York and Toronto will meet for 31st time in league play with the Red Bulls owning a 15-8-7 mark all-time over TFC. New York is 4-6-5 when playing at BMO Field and most recently earned a 1-0 win as Kemar Lawrence scored the eventual game winner in the fourth minute and Luis Robles tallied eight saves on July 1, 2018.

Midfielder Daniel Royer looks to keep his recent form heading into Toronto as he has scored goals in back-to-back matches and five goals in the last six games. Royer not only tallied his 30th and 31st career league goals on Sunday, but he remained perfect on penalty kicks as he improved to 7-for-7. His 31 goals are the 16th most and his five braces are tied for the 12th best since he was signed on August 3, 2016, per Opta.

New York completes their back-to-back road trip on Sunday at Orlando City SC. Sunday's match is slated for 7:30 p.m. EST and will be broadcast live on FS1, FOX Sports Go, and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.
