The New York Red Bulls begin a two-match road trip as they take on Toronto FC at BMO Field.

New York's last game against Inter Miami was postponed due to severe weather in the New Jersey area with a future date and time to be announced, allowing them extra rest while the Reds drew 1-1 against Orlando City four days ago.

Team news

Toronto will be without Richie Laryea, Kemar Lawrence, Jonathan Osorio and Eriq Zavaleta, who are all on international duty. Ayo Akinola suffered a torn ACL while with Canada at the Gold Cup and is out for the rest of the season. Ifunanyachi Achara is also out after having ACL surgery while Quentin Westberg is questionable with a hand issue.

New York is still missing Youba Diarra (hamstring), Aaron Long (achilles), Andres Reyes (hamstring) and Daniel Royer (thigh) from its lineup. Andrew Gutman has been upgraded to questionable with his knee injury and Sean Nealis' status is up in the air with a thigh issue.

Previous meeting

On May 8th at Red Bull Arena, New York came away with a 2-0 victory to stretch their unbeaten run against Toronto to four games. Frankie Amaya opened the scoring in the 32nd minute from a low shot inside the near post after a beautiful layoff from Fabio.

The Red Bulls doubled their lead in the 68th minute as Dru Yearwood played in Fabio, forcing goalkeeper Alex Bono off of his line. The ball caromed off of him and Caden Clark was there to fire home into the empty net.
