New York Red Bulls II will host Atlanta United 2 on Tuesday, August 9, at MSU Soccer Park.

The back line for Red Bulls II will have Curtis Ofori, Daniel De Leon, Michael Knapp, and O’Vonte Mullings.

Mullings will wear the captain’s armband.

Giannis Nikopolidis will start in net, becoming the eighth goalkeeper in club history to appear in 10 or more matches.

The bench will consist of Christopher Cragwell, Lamine Conte, Erick Ruiz, John Murphy, Jonathan Filipe, and Jordan Adebayo-Smith. Derrek Chan will serve as the backup goalkeeper.

Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET, with coverage on ESPN+.
