Welcome to Tactical Sips, a semi-regular pre-match post featuring taurine-spiked breakdowns of the upcoming game.
The international break is dead. Long live the international break.
The New York Red Bulls started the season with two losses. Then the club won two matches. Next, Gerhard Struber’s side dropped two fixtures. Following the most recent 2-1 victory over Orlando City SC, one can reasonably assume that three points are all but assured.
That is what we call statistics.
This week’s opponent is the undefeated Nashville SC. Sporting a record of two wins, zero losses, and five draws, the second-year team is currently in seventh place in the Eastern Conference.
