Kyle Duncan is into the Starting XI for the New York Red Bulls as they head to Yankee Stadium to take on NYCFC in the second New York Derby of the week.
This will be the ninth all-time meeting between the two clubs at Yankee Stadium with NYCFC holding the advantage with a 5-2-1 mark. The Red Bulls have outscored NYCFC in matches at Yankee Stadium, 16-15.
Duncan starts alongside Tom Edwards, Andrew Gutman and Sean Nealis.
Dru Yearwood has shaken off the injury that forced him out of the first Derby, and starts next to Sean Davis in the midfield. John Tolkin will also be on the pitch for the starting whistle.
Cristian Cásseres Jr. and Omir Fernandez lead the midfield, while Patryk Klimala starts up top.
Klimala has scored in three-straight matches and has recorded a goal or an assist in his last four matches. Klimala recorded the game-tying penalty kick in the 102nd minute in Wednesday’s match against New York City FC. His goal is the latest goal scored in MLS regular-season history. The Polish striker has converted all three of his penalty kick attempts this season.
Carlos Coronel starts in goal for RBNY.
Ryan Meara will serve as backup goalkeeper, while Frankie Amaya, Tom Barlow, Wiki Carmona, Caden Clark, Youba Diarra, Cameron Harper, Andrés Reyes and Danny Royer finish out the bench.
Fábio is being held out of the gameday roster due to a calf issue.
