Eastern Conference rivals D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls face off tonight at RFK Stadium, with second place in the East on the line in this battle of arch-rivals.
The Red Bulls come in unbeaten in four matches, and boast MLS goal-scoring leaders Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper. They take on a D.C. squad riding high off a big comeback road win against the New England Revolution.
Today's match also features a match-up of top rookies, as D.C. midfielder Nick DeLeon and Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara clash in a battle of Rookie of the Year candidates.
Both teams have had their defensive struggles this year, which could lead to a high-scoring match, though the wet and rainy conditions could make play sloppy at RFK Stadium.
