First place in the Eastern Conference is on the line tonight as the New York Red Bulls play host to first-place Sporting Kansas City at Red Bull Arena (7pm, MSG).
The Red Bulls are in third place, two points behind Sporting KC and enter with a five-match home winning streak. They haven't lost at home all season and enter with some momentum after a 3-1 victory against Columbus last Saturday.
Sporting KC enters the match with the best road record in the league, and have won four of their past five road games. Their defense has been especially stingy, having posted three straight road shutouts.
Another shutout won't be easy tonight against a Thierry Henry-led Red Bulls attack. Henry and Tim Cahill will have the task of spear-heading an offense that will give Sporting KC their toughest test in a while.
