New York Red Bulls midfielder Jan Gunnar Solli feels they go into the MLS playoffs the form team.

The Red Bulls reached the playoffs courtesy of a 1-0 win over Philadelphia in front their fourth sellout crowd of the season at Red Bull Arena.

"I think there are a lot of teams out there that don't want to see the Red Bulls in the playoffs," Solli told the New York Times.

"It's about restarting our season. We showed passion tonight. It shows we have a big potential. Yes, it's been a bumpy season, but tonight we had a bit of luck and a good performance."
