The New York Red Bulls have finally caught a break.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Orlando City FC playmaker Kaka will not be making the trip for Sunday evening’s encounter at Red Bull Arena after suffering a minor groin injury. A team spokesman is cited in the report claiming Kaka would be available for next weekend’s encounter against the New England Revolution.

The setback is a disappointing one for Orlando who missed their star playmaker in the opening three matches of the year due to a thigh strain.

However, the Red Bulls will be just fine with the news. New York is currently on a four match losing streak and have scored just one goal in that timeframe. The Red Bulls currently sit dead last in all of Major League Soccer following their 2015 Supporters’ Shield winning season.

The Red Bulls host Orlando City at Red Bull Arena Sunday evening at 7:30 p.m. ET.
