D.C. United plays their second consecutive rivalry game on the road when they travel to Red Bull Arena for a showdown with New York on Sunday. United is coming off a thrilling last-minute victory against the Philadelphia Union on Jan 16.
New York pulled within striking distance of D.C. atop the Eastern Conference with the point they earned at BC Place in Vancouver, but this was on Wednesday night, making the Red Bulls the more travel weary team.
United coach Ben Olsen seems pretty excited about the matchup.
"When the league changed the schedule where we would play New York and Philly and New England more I was pumped," Olsen said earlier this week on the Capital Soccer Show. "I liked playing in those games as a player, I like coaching in them and I think people enjoy watching them."
The match begins at 7 p.m. ET and will broadcast on the NBC Sports Network.
