“It’s being truthful to our identity, try to play, and we know the reputation of Red Bulls. They’re a very good team on the high pressure, they like to press super-high, intensity, all together trying to block all the channels for passing lanes and stuff like that. And we just tried to do it better than them on the buildup. And that’s the intention that we will have again.” – Pineda, on the team’s last game against the Red Bulls

“It’s a very important week, but I think six points are on our minds. We saw last game we’re able to get a point on the road, but the Eastern Conference table is very tight, so we want to try and win all our games.” – Ronaldo Cisneros on the team’s next two games
