The New York Red Bulls are set for a battle in Harrison against Inter Miami CF.

Dennis Gjengaar will make his first MLS start for New York, while Ryan Meara will be in net.

This will be the eighth overall regular season meeting between New York and Miami, with the Red Bulls holding the advantage in the series with a 5-3-0 mark.

Gjengaar will be joined in the attack by Dante Vanzier, returning from injury, as well as Lewis Morgan and Wiki Carmona.

The Red Bulls are currently on a four-match unbeaten streak at Red Bull Arena across all competitions, including two-straight regular season wins.

Peter Stroud and Frankie Amaya will look to control the central midfield.

Kyle Duncan, Sean Nealis, Andrés Reyes and Dylan Nealis start along the backline. Sean will captain the side.

Reyes finished last season ranked second in MLS in interceptions and tied for third in aerial duels won. The Colombian defender will be making his fourth appearance against his former club. Reyes has scored four goals in his MLS career.
