Midfielder Eric Alexander scored in his first start as a Red Bull in the loss. United is 1-1-0 and is coming off a 1-0 home opener win over Real Salt Lake.

RED BULLS VS. D.C. UNITED – MARCH 16, 2013 – 12:30 PM ET

BULLETIN BOARD NEW YORK BATTLE D.C. UNITED IN HOME OPENER After playing two consecutive west coast matches, the New York Red Bulls come back to Red Bull Arena for their home opener on Saturday against long-time rival D.C. United. New York is coming off a 2-1 loss to 2012 MLS Supporters Shield winner, the San Jose Earthquakes, last Sunday. Midfielder Eric Alexander opened the scoring for New York but a late strike from Adam Jahn and a Chris Wondolowski second half stoppage time penalty kick conversion sealed three points for the hosts. The Red Bulls host a United side that is coming off a 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake last Saturday at RFK Stadium. Forward Lionard Pajoy scored the only goal in a tight encounter. D.C. lost its first match of the season, 2-0, to the Houston Dynamo on March 2 away from home. Last season, the Red Bulls went 1-1-1 in regular season action against United, most recently tying 2-2 on Aug. 29, 2012 at RFK Stadium. This is also the first time the sides have met since D.C. knocked out New York 2-1 on aggregate in last year’s Eastern Conference Semifinals Series. After the rivals played to a 1-1 tie at RFK Stadium, a Nick DeLeon 88th minute goal was the difference maker in the second leg played at Red Bull Arena on Nov. 7. The teams will be vying for the Atlantic Cup, the trophy given to the club that earns the most standings points in the series between the two sides. United took the cup back from New York last season (D.C. led in goals scored in the series – the first tiebreaker) after the Red Bulls held it for two-straight years. In D.C.’s only visit to Red Bull Arena last year on June 24, former United player Brandon Barklage scored two goals to help propel the Red Bulls to a 3-2 win in front of a record sellout crowd. FOR STARTERS New York is 11-3-3 in its home openers, including a 6-0-3 mark since 2004. The Red Bulls’ March 3 showdown against Portland (3-3 tie) was the 11th time the New York franchise has opened its season on the road (out of 18 seasons). All-time, New York is 7-7-4 in season openers and 2-6-3 in the 11 times it started its campaign away from home. In its first road matches of the season, New York has a total record of 6-7-5. This is the fourth season in club history that New York has started its campaign with two-straight matches on the road (1997, 1998 and 2012 were the other times). In the three other seasons, New York started the year 0-2, meaning that its 3-3 tie at Portland was the first time that it has earned a point under this scheduling scenario. NEWCOMERS GET OFF THE MARK Three offseason acquisitions have all accounted for the team’s goals so far this young season. Former Real Salt Lake duo Fabian Espindola and Jamison Olave made their Red Bulls debuts on March 3 at Portland and both scored. Espindola tallied two goals in the ninth and 24 th minutes with a pair of left-footed shots that beat goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts while Olave fired home a Heath Pearce cross in the 28th minute for his first goal since July 23, 2011 – a 4-0 Real Salt Lake win over San Jose. Espindola became the first player in club history to score two goals in his debut. The Red Bulls acquired Espindola and Olave from Real Salt Lake on Dec. 3, 2012 in exchange for allocation money. Last Sunday at San Jose, midfielder Eric Alexander, acquired in an offseason trade with the Portland Timbers, recorded a first half goal in his first start as a Red Bull. Alexander’s last MLS goal was on Sept. 16, 2010 for FC Dallas. The opponent? New York.

PETKE MAKES DEBUT Mike Petke officially made his head coaching debut in New York’s 3-3 tie with the Portland Timbers. The 13th individual to earn the New York top position, Petke faced off on Sunday against another first-time MLS head coach – former University of Akron head coach Caleb Porter. Petke, who is one of the club’s most popular all-time players and its leader in games played, was previously serving New York as head coach on an interim basis before being the named permanently to the position on Jan. 24. Petke, 37, finished his second season as an assistant coach on New York’s staff after an illustrious playing career. He joined the coaching ranks in 2011 following a 13-year career that included two playing stints with the club from 1998-2002 and 2008-10. The Bohemia, NY native holds the current club record for games played, with 169 (196 in all competitions), games started (158 regular season) and minutes played (14,060 regular season). Drafted by New York in 1998 with the 8th overall pick in the MLS Draft, Petke made his debut on April 17, 1998 against the Chicago Fire. He helped the team to its first Eastern Division title in 2000 and was thrice named an MLS All-Star. Petke was traded to D.C. United before the 2003 season and won his only MLS Cup in 2004 with United. He was then traded to Colorado during their 2005 campaign, helping the Rapids to reach the Western Conference Finals. The Red Bulls signed Petke again at the end of 2008 and he played 35 more matches for the team until retiring following the 2010 season. He was named the club’s 2009 Defender of the Year and helped New York to its second Eastern Conference regular season title in his final season. Petke finished his career with 307 appearances in league play (351 in all competitions), in which he scored 13 goals and added four assists. He is one of 16 MLS players who has appeared in 300 or more career regular season matches. Petke also appeared in nine playoff matches and 13 U.S. Open Cup matches as a member of the New York franchise and earned two caps for the United States. Prior to his professional career, Petke spent four years at Southern Connecticut State University, leading the team to the NCAA Division II National title in 1995. DUO MAKES FIRST START, MORENO DEBUTS Midfielders Eric Alexander and Jonny Steele made their first starts as Red Bulls in New York’s 2-1 loss to San Jose on March 10. Steele played 69 minutes before being replaced by Ruben Bover while Alexander, who scored the only goal for New York, played 87 minutes. New York traded for Steele’s rights on Feb. 20 in exchange for a conditional supplemental draft pick. Alexander was acquired from the Portland Timbers in exchange for allocation money on Feb. 11. In addition, 17-year-old Red Bulls Academy product Amando Moreno made his professional debut as a second half stoppage time substitute against San Jose. Signed on Dec. 11, 2012, Moreno became the fourth Academy player promoted to the Red Bulls First Team (out of seven) total to feature in a MLS match (Juan Agudelo, Matt Kassel and Connor Lade are the others). JUNINHO, BOVER EARN MLS DEBUTS Midfielders Juninho and Ruben Bover made their respective MLS debuts on March 3 at Portland. Juninho played the full 90 minutes while Bover started, tallied an assist and featured for 66 minutes before being substituted.
