“It’s not just these two games, we think it’s important to take points from every game. But we know that these games are going to be difficult. Going to Red Bulls will be a difficult game. But we’re going there to try to get points. You know, one, three, we know we want to get points. So we’re working very hard to do that.” – Araujo
