MLS Classics: New York Red Bulls, DC United square off in wild 2019 Atlantic Cup clash

The Atlantic Cup clash between the New York Red Bulls and D.C. United on August 21, 2019 was a wild one, featuring two red cards (including one to one of the most iconic players to ever play in the league), a legitimate golazo and a controversial penalty kick for good measure.

It was certainly a memorable chapter in one of the league's most historic derbies, which has roots that date back all the way to the inaugural MLS season of 1996. The whole match between the East Coast foes will be streamed in its entirety right here as part of our MLS Classics series during Heineken Rivalry Week starting at 4 pm ET.

Before the stream kicks off above, be sure to catch up on all that history with this deep-dive on how the Atlantic Cup became one of the most contentious rivalries in MLS.
