After dispatching Atletico Pantoja in the Concacaf Champions League Round of 16, the New York Red Bulls take a step up in class when they meet Mexico's Santos Laguna in the quarterfinals with the first leg at what is expected to be a frigid Red Bull Arena Tuesday. The Red Bulls fielded a rotated starting XI in a 1-1 draw with Columbus Crew SC Saturday so they should have fresh legs for a Santos side that blasted Marathon from Honduras, 11-2, on aggregate.
