INSIDE THE 18: Red Bulls Look to Extinguish Fire at Red Bull Arena


The New York Red Bulls are set to take on the Chicago Fire at Red Bull Arena with Noah Eile and Andrés Reyes starting along the backline.

Eile and Reyes pair with John Tolkin and Dylan Nealis in front of Carlos Coronel in goal.

The Red Bulls have posted an 8-5-2 mark when playing Chicago at Red Bull Arena.

Frankie Amaya and Peter Stroud look to lock down the defensive midfield.

New York enter the match with a five-match home unbeaten streak across all competitions and in their last three regular season home matches, they have outscored their opponents, 9-1, in those three victories.

Emil Forsberg, Lewis Morgan, Wiki Carmona and Dante Vanzeir push the attack.

Morgan, who tied for the MLS lead in goals scored with six, has scored four of them at Red Bull Arena and has one goal against the Fire. 

Vanzeir recorded his sixth assist of the season, which leads MLS, and scored his first goal of the season. The Belgian international ranks fifth in MLS in goal contributions with seven only behind Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Chicho Arango, and Morgan.

Head Coach Sandro Schwarz will have Kyle Duncan, Sean Nealis, Cameron Harper, Daniel Edelman, Dennis Gjengaar, Roald Mitchell, Julian Hall and Elias Manoel available off the bench. Ryan Meara will be the backup goalkeeper.

Cory Burke and Serge Ngoma miss the match due to injury.
