D.C. United vs. New York Red Bulls live stream: How to watch the 2014 MLS Playoffs online

Can the Black and Red spring a surprise comeback?

Despite both teams joining MLS as inaugural members in the 1996 season, the New York Red Bulls have never defeated D.C. United in a playoff series. That could change when they meet on Saturday afternoon (2:30 p.m. ET, NBC).

The Red Bulls won the first leg of this Eastern Conference semifinal 2-0 at Red Bull Arena, putting DC in a sticky spot. The Black and Red need to match that result to force extra time and win by three goals to go through. Because New York has an away goal, DC will need to score four times if they concede.

Chris Rolfe and Sean Franklin came off the bench for DC in the first leg, but should start this game. Luis Silva is likely to be fit enough to make the 18-man squad as well. New York have no fresh fitness concerns or boosts.

For American viewers who want to watch the game online, this one should be pretty accessible. It's on NBC's Live Extra service, and just about everyone should be able to watch. Unlike some streams on that service that require you to be a TV subscriber to NBC Sports Network, this one is going to be available to just about everyone because the game is being broadcast on free over-the-air TV.

This game is not being broadcast nationally in Canada, but you can catch it on BT Sports Extra in the UK. For listings from more countries, check out Live Soccer TV.
