Defender Nick Hagglund and midfielder Haris Medunjanin earned a place in the Starting XI for their performances at New York Red Bulls.

FC Cincinnati claimed the club’s first win since the MLS is Back Tournament by defeating the New York Red Bulls, 1-0, at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night. In addition, the club recorded its sixth clean sheet in 12 matches.
