The Red Bulls look to earn their sixth win in seven games when they take on the Columbus Crew Sunday for the second time this season. New York is unbeaten in its past six (5-0-1) and is most recently coming off a 1-0 win over the two-time MLS Cup defending champion LA Galaxy. Columbus snapped a two-game losing streak when they topped Toronto FC, 1-0, on the road last weekend. New York beat Columbus, 1-0, on May 4 at Crew Stadium. The teams will also play again on Aug. 10 at Columbus.


RED BULLS VS. COLUMBUS CREW – MAY 26, 2013 – 5:00 PM ET

BULLETIN BOARD RED BULLS BATTLE CREW, LOOKING TO EXTEND EAST LEAD The Eastern Conference-leading New York Red Bulls will look to extend their unbeaten streak to seven when they take on the Columbus Crew at Red Bull Arena on Sunday at 5:00 PM (TV: MSG, UniMas; Radio: ESPN Deportes Radio Nueva York 1050 AM). New York (7-4-3, 24 pts.) enters the second match of a three-game homestand with a three-point lead in the Eastern Conference over second place Sporting Kansas City. The Red Bulls are 5-0-1 in their last six matches, most recently defeating the two-time defending MLS Cup Champion LA Galaxy, 1-0, last Sunday at Red Bull Arena in front of a sold out crowd of 25,219. Midfielder Tim Cahill tallied the game winner in second half stoppage time to give the Red Bulls the three points. The Red Bulls will host a Columbus Crew side on Sunday that snapped a two-game losing streak when it beat Toronto FC, 1-0, at BMO Field behind a Dominic Oduro strike. With the result, Columbus improved to sixth place in the Eastern Conference with 15 points and a 4-4-3 record. This will be the second of three regular season meetings between the Red Bulls and Crew. New York beat Columbus, 1-0, on May 4 at Crew Stadium on the back of a Cahill 80th minute goal and a Luis Robles penalty kick stop. The Red Bulls swept the season series with the Crew for the first time in club history in 2012, going 2-0-0 in regular season play. The Red Bulls, who are currently unbeaten in their last five against their Eastern Conference rival (3-0-2), are 25-23-7 all-time and 14-9-4 at home. The Red Bulls have another match in Columbus on Aug. 10. LAST GASP CAHILL GOAL LIFTS RED BULLS TO 1-0 WIN OVER LA GALAXY Midfielder Tim Cahill’s 91st minute goal and a stout defensive performance helped the Eastern Conference-leading New York Red Bulls extend their unbeaten streak to six, as they topped the LA Galaxy, 1-0, in front of a sold out crowd of 25,219 at Red Bull Arena Sunday afternoon. The win, which kicked off a three-game homestand, moved the Red Bulls to 24 points and a 7-4-3 record. Played under soggy conditions, the match seemed destined to end in a scoreless draw until Cahill rose above the Galaxy defense and flicked home a Juninho free kick in second half stoppage time for his fourth goal of the year. New York is 5-0-1 in its last six MLS games and its attendance on Sunday equaled an all-time high set on Oct. 20, 2012 (vs. Sporting Kansas City). Prior to Cahill’s match-winner, both sides had chances to find the back of the net. In the first half, Red Bulls forward Fabian Espindola ran onto an Eric Alexander through ball in the 28th minute and chipped it goal bound over goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini. However, Galaxy defender A.J. DeLaGarza was able to clear it before the ball crossed the line. On the other end, Robbie Keane’s free kick moments before the break was tipped over the bar by goalkeeper Luis Robles. Robles and the defense, led by Man of the Match Jamison Olave, earned the team’s fourth shutout of the year, keeping the Galaxy’s attack headed by Keane and Landon Donovan mostly at bay. Keane had a terrific chance to give the visitors the lead in the 89th minute, heading a Gyasi Zardes cross just wide. Earlier, Espindola had a few long range efforts and forced Cudicini to make a stop in the 57th minute. New York Red Bulls 1, LA Galaxy 0 May 19, 2013 – Red Bull Arena – Harrison, NJ

The last time this occurred was from April 19, 2003 to May 31, 2003 when New York went 5-0-2. It was the first time that the Red Bulls has not lost in six consecutive matches from April 28, 2012 to May 23, 2012. During the current run, New York has conceded just four goals and earned two shutouts. Its last loss was on April 17 – a 1-0 home defeat to Sporting Kansas City. In addition, after failing to win in their first four away games, New York has gone unbeaten in four road matches (3-0-1), improving their record away from Red Bull Arena to 3-3-2. The Red Bulls are 4-1-1 at home. The other time that New York had an unbeaten streak that was seven games or longer was when it went nine matches without a defeat from June 17, 2000 to July 22, 2000 (7-0-2). LATE GAME HERO CAHILL KEEPS ROLLING Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill continues to find the back of the net, scoring his fourth goal in five games in New York’s 1-0 win over the LA Galaxy. Cahill rose up and headed a Juninho free kick in the back of the net in the 91st minute. It was the third game-winning goal that Cahill has scored in the 80th minute or after this season. (April 27 at Toronto FC, May 4 at Columbus the others). Cahill was named MLS Player of the Week for Week 9 on April 29 following his two-goal performance in the Red Bulls’ 2-1 win over Toronto FC at BMO Field on April 27. Cahill followed that performance up by scoring the game-winning goal against Columbus in a 1-0 victory a week later. This season, Cahill has recorded 13 starts, notching four goals and two assists. After joining the Red Bulls on July 26, 2012, Cahill started in 12 regular season matches and two postseason games, notching a goal and three assists that year.

On May 21, Reading United qualified for the third round of the competition after knocking off USL PRO side, the Harrisburg City Islanders, 1-0, at Don Thomas Stadium in Reading, PA, earning the club’s first-ever professional upset in its history. Mario Pinto found the back of the net in the win. Reading advanced to face Harrisburg following a 2-0 victory over NPSL’s FC Lehigh Valley United Sonic in the tournament’s first round. The Red Bulls will compete in the knockout tournament for the 17 th time. Last year, the Red Bulls defeated USL PRO side, the Charleston Battery, 3-0, on the road before falling to the City Islanders on June 5, 3-1, in overtime in Harrisburg, PA. New York has never faced Reading United. Since Red Bull Arena opened in 2010, the Red Bulls are a perfect 4-0 in the Open Cup at home. New York’s best finish in the tournament was in 2003, making it to the final before falling to the Chicago Fire, 1-0. OFFENSE CONTINUES TO ROLL The Red Bulls are tied in MLS in goals scored with 20 with FC Dallas and the Portland Timbers. New York is also first in assists (26) and tied for fourth in shots (175) and shots on goal (54). Fifteen players have recorded at least one assist this year and Juninho has a team-high four assists. HENRY TAKES CHARGE New York forward Thierry Henry recorded his sixth MLS multi-goal game after scoring two in a 2-1 win over the Montreal Impact last Wednesday, May 8. Henry’s second was one for the highlight reel, connecting on an overhead kick in the 88th minute - the eventual matchwinner (LINK). The goal was also the number one play on ESPN Sports Center’s Top 10 Plays that evening. Henry is in sole possession of fourth place in regular season goals scored in club history with 36, putting him three goals behind third place Clint Mathis. He is also tied with Mathis for third in club history in multi-goal games (6), trailing Juan Pablo Angel (12) and Giovanni Savarese (10). His first tally of 2013 – a 81st minute winner versus the Philadelphia Union on March 30 – won MLS Goal of the Week honors. Entering his third full season in Major League Soccer, Henry continues to be one of the game’s top performers. In 2012, the World Cup, UEFA Champions League and European Championship winner was a finalist for the League’s Most Valuable Player and earned a spot both on the MLS

All-Star Team and the Best XI for the second-straight time in his career after tallying 15 goals and 12 assists. SAM TALLIES FIRST Red Bulls midfielder Lloyd Sam scored his first MLS goal, slotting in a low shot in the 55th minute off an Andre Akpan feed to help give New York a 1-1 tie on May 11. Sam has played in eight games this season, making his second start of the year against the Revolution. The 28-yearold made his first start on April 27 against Toronto FC, playing 71 minutes before being replaced by Kosuke Kimura. It was Sam’s first MLS start since Oct. 20, 2012 against Sporting Kansas City. The former Charlton Athletic player signed with the Red Bulls on Aug. 17, 2012. U.S. WOMEN’S NATIONAL TEAM TO FACE KOREA REPUBLIC AT RED BULL ARENA JUNE 20 The New York Red Bulls announced that Red Bull Arena will host an international friendly between the United States Women’s National Team and the Korea Republic on Thursday, June 20. The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network. Tickets are on sale through newyorkredbulls.com. Tickets can also be purchased by phone at 1-877-727-6223 (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET only) and at the Red Bull Arena ticket office (open Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.). “We are proud to host the U.S. Women’s National Team at Red Bull Arena for the second time in the stadium’s short history,” said New York Red Bulls General Manager Jérôme de Bontin. “As the top soccer stadium in North America, we expect that our arena will provide a perfect environment for both teams and we hope that fans across the tri-state area will come out to support this match.” The USA returns to Red Bull Arena for their second match at the venue following a 1-0 victory against Mexico on June 5, 2011, in the final game before the Women’s World Cup. Midfielder Lauren Cheney scored the lone goal in that game. “Any games are extremely valuable for the continued development of the team, but games against different kinds of opponents are even better,” said U.S. head coach Tom Sermanni. “We’ve played seven matches this year against European teams so it’s nice to have the challenge of playing two matches against the South Koreans, who play a different style. South Korea has been improving steadily over the past decade and over the past couple of years they have put together a young, but highly skilled team built on the back of great success at youth World Cups. With the expansion of the Women’s World Cup from 16 to 24 teams, I’m sure they have their sights firmly set on a berth to Canada.” Groups of 20 or more can obtain an order form at ussoccer.com or call 312-528-1290. Ultimate Fan Tickets (special VIP packages that include a premium ticket, a custom-made official U.S. National Team jersey with name and number, VIP access to the field before and after the game, and other unique benefits) are also available exclusively through ussoccer.com.

RED BULLS VS. COLUMBUS CREW – MAY 26, 2013 – 5:00 PM ET The U.S. team is 6-0-2 in 2013 and will play its next game on June 2 against Canada at BMO Field in Toronto.

PEARCE REACHES CENTURY Red Bulls defender Heath Pearce played his 100 th Major League Soccer regular season match in New York’s 4-1 win over New England April 20, starting and featuring for 90 minutes. This season, Pearce has played in 10 games, starting in eight and has recorded two assists. He has 98 career starts. Pearce came to MLS and FC Dallas following stints with German side, Hansa Rostock (2007-09) and Danish club, Nordsjælland (2005-07). He was with FC Dallas during the 2009 and 2010 seasons before being traded to Chivas USA, where he spent two seasons. Pearce was acquired by New York on May 17, 2012 along with allocation money and future considerations in exchange for forward Juan Agudelo. Last year, the 28year-old started in 28 games, notching two goals. A NUMBER OF FIRSTS In their 4-1 win over New England on April 20, the Red Bulls recorded a number of firsts: Midfielder Jonny Steele recorded his first goal as a Red Bull, knocking home from close range an Eric Alexander cross. Alexander also tallied his first assist for New York on that play. Steele also recorded his second assist of the year on Thierry Henry’s 82nd minute goal. For more on Steele, click here. Forward Andre Akpan made his regular season debut for the Red Bulls, coming on for Fabian Espindola. Akpan notched the secondary assist on Steele’s goal. It was Akpan’s first career MLS assist. He was acquired from Colorado on March 28. Espindola found the back of the net in the eighth minute for the first time since the team’s first game of the season on March 3 in a 3-3 tie at Portland, where he scored twice. OBEKOP MAKES DEBUT Young Cameroonian midfielder Marius Obekop made his MLS debut on April 17 against Sporting Kansas City, replacing Tim Cahill in the 77 th minute. Obekop, signed on March 18, was previously with Cameroon MTN Elite One side, Renaissance FC de Nhoumou, where he scored five goals in 18 games during the 2012 season and helped his team to the quarterfinals of the Cameroon Cup. A former member of the Arsenal de Yaounde youth organization, Obekop debuted for the Cameroon Under-20 team, appearing for his nation twice during the African Cup of Nations Qualifiers. Obekop also featured with the Cameroon Under-17 squad starting in 2010.

RED BULLS ACQUIRE AKPAN The New York Red Bulls announced March 28 that they acquired forward Andre Akpan from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for a conditional 2015 MLS Draft pick. Akpan, 25, was with the Rapids since being selected by Colorado in the second round (22nd overall) in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft out of Harvard University. Part of the Rapids squad that won MLS Cup in 2010, Akpan finished last season with a career-high three goals and 15 appearances. Akpan has featured in one match for the Rapids this season as a substitute on March 2 at FC Dallas and has amassed 29 appearances and four goals during his MLS career. The Grand Prairie, TX native was a member of the U.S. Under-20 World Cup squad in Canada. At Harvard, he was the school’s all-time leading scorer and the 2009 Ivy League Player of the Year. LUYINDULA MAKES RED BULLS DEBUT Following his official signing on March 19, forward Peguy Luyindula made his MLS debut for the Red Bulls March 23 at Montreal, earning a place in the starting lineup and playing 79 minutes before being substituted for Josue Martinez. Despite not finding the back of the net, Luyindula created chances for the Red Bulls, shooting over the bar in the first half off a Heath Pearce feed and then forcing Impact goalkeeper Troy Perkins to make a big save in the 70th minute. Luyindula most recently played with renowned French side, Paris Saint-Germain, where he began his tenure in 2007. During his time at PSG, Luyindula played in 179 games in all competitions, scoring 37 goals. Prior to joining PSG, Luyindula was with French club, Marseille, from 2004-05 before heading on loan to Auxerre (2005-05) and Spanish side, Levante at the start of the 2006 campaign. The 32-year-old started his career at Niort in 1997 before moving to Strasbourg for three-plus years. Luyindula was able to compete in the UEFA Champions League at Lyon from 2001-2004, scoring 46 goals in 126 appearances in all competitions, while helping his team win two league championships. Luyindula has earned six caps for the French National Team, scoring one goal in a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

CLEANING UP Goalkeeper Luis Robles made two saves, including a block on a Chris Pontius drive, while the Red Bulls defense held firm for most of the team’s 0-0 tie against D.C. United March 16. It was New York’s first clean sheet of the season and Robles’ third of his MLS career. Last year, New York posted eight shutouts.
