The New York Red Bulls take on Toronto FC meet in Major League Soccer action at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison (New Jersey) on Saturday evening (August 3).
This is the second meeting between these teams in a few weeks, with Toronto claiming a 3-1 home win on July 17. On that occasion, Jozy Altidore and Alejandro Pozuelo gave the hosts a two-goal lead before the half-hour mark, with Ashtone Morgan adding a third goal after Tom Barlow had briefly given the Red Bulls a lifeline.

Brian White scored his eighth goal of the season to give the Red Bulls an early lead against the Crew, but they then fell 2-1 behind before Danny Royer equalized from the penalty spot. A late Columbus Crew goal proved decisive though and condemned the Red Bulls to defeat.
