The New York Red Bulls and D.C. United meet on Wednesday evening in a crucial match down the stretch for both clubs.
New York will deploy Patryk Klimala up top, supported by Fábio and Cristian Cásseres Jr.
Cásseres, Jr. has recorded a goal or an assist in four-straight matches, which is tied for the longest streak by a Red Bulls player this season. The Venezuelan midfielder has scored a goal in two-straight matches and earned the game-winning assist in New York’s 2-1 victory over Columbus Crew on Saturday. He ranks first in the club for game-winning goals (3) and tied for second in game-winning assists (2).
Sean Davis and Dru Yearwood will lock down the midfield, while Andrew Gutman and Kyle Duncan push forward on the wings.
In matches that Yearwood has played 90 minutes this season, the Red Bulls have recorded a 3-0-0 mark.
Along the back line, RBNY will start Tom Edwards, Sean Nealis and Andrés Reyes.
The Red Bulls will look to extend their road winning streak to five matches for the first time since 2000, which extended from June 3 to July 15. New York’s five road wins are the second most in the Eastern Conference and is tied for ninth most in franchise history.
Carlos Coronel starts in goal for the Red Bulls.
Ryan Meara will serve as the backup goalkeeper, while Frankie Amaya, Tom Barlow, Wiki Carmona, Caden Clark, Youba Diarra, Cameron Harper, Lucas Monzón and Danny Royer are all available off the bench.
