Coming off back-to-back wins, including an impressive 3-2 victory over the LA Galaxy, the New York Red Bulls hope to continue to climb up the Eastern Conference table when they host the Montreal Impact Wednesday at Red Bull Arena. 

The Red Bulls (3-4-2) rallied from a halftime deficit to beat the Galaxy with Amro Tarek, Marc Rzatkowski and Derrick Etienne each scoring their first goals of the season in the resounding victory. The Impact (5-4-2) are coming off a listless performance in a 2-0 home loss to New York City FC Saturday, which came on the heels of a pair of shutout wins over New England and Chicago. 

The Red Bulls have won all nine of their previous meetings with the Impact at Red Bull Arena, outscoring Montreal, 28-8.
