INSIDE THE 18: Marsch Turns to Veterans for Champions League

As the New York Red Bulls kick off their 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League campaign on Thursday, February 22 against CD Olimpia, head coach Jesse Marsch turns to a veteran side for his first official Starting XI of 2018.

Luis Robles makes his debut as captain of the Red Bulls, and will command a back line of Kemar Lawrence, Aurelien Collin, Aaron Long and Amir Murillo.

Felipe and Tyler Adams take charge in the middle of the field, while Alex Muyl, Daniel Royer and Sean Davis look to create in the attack.

Forward Bradley Wright-Phillips will start in his usual position up top as he looks to build on his 100 career-goal tally across all competitions for the New York Red Bulls.

Ryan Meara, Fidel Escobar, Connor Lade, Florian Valot, Marc Rzatkowsi, Derrick Etienne, Jr., and Carlos Rivas will be available off the bench.

Kickoff is set for 10 p.m. ET with coverage on Univision Deportes, New York Red Bulls Radio on Tunein and streaming on the go90 mobile app or the go90 website.
