NYRB II Face ATL UTD 2 for First Time at MSU

HARRISON, N.J. (July 5, 2018) - New York Red Bulls II return to MSU Soccer Park to face Atlanta United 2 on Friday. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET. and can be seen live on ESPN+.

NYRB II is coming off a 3-3 draw to the defending USL champions Louisville City FC. When playing at home, NYRB II, who sit ninth in the Eastern Conference standings, are 5-2-1.

Atlanta United 2, sitting deep in the Eastern Conference Standings (15th), faces NYRB II coming off a 3-0 loss to Nashville SC. Atlanta also carries a six-game winless streak.

NYRB II and Atlanta United 2 previously squared off in this season’s USL Week 2 with Atlanta taking the 3-1 win at home thanks to a brace from Jon Gallagher. However, much has changed since then. Gallagher has not scored in his last six games, and Atlanta United 2 is yet to win an away game this season carrying a 0-7-2 record when on the road.
