INSIDE THE 18: Regulars Looks To Rebound

Head Coach Chris Armas and the New York Red Bulls are looking to rebound from a two-game streak without a win.

Armas will roll out the regular lineup, with Bradley Wright-Phillips starting up top and Luis Robles captaining the side and in goal against Toronto FC on Saturday afternoon.

Wright-Phillips is one goal away from becoming the first MLS player to notch three separate seasons of 20+ goals.

The attacking midfield will see Kaku, Marc Rzatkowski and Danny Royer in the Starting XI, with Tyler Adams and Sean Davis holding down the defensive midfield.

The back line in front of Robles will feature Kemar Lawrence, Tim Parker, Aaron Long and Michael Amir Murillo.

Lawrence scored the game-winner last time out against Toronto, a low screamer, in the fourth minute.

Armas will have Ryan Meara available as backup goalkeeper, as well as Fidel Escobar, Connor Lade, Alex Muyl, Derrick Etienne, Jr., Andreas Ivan and Brian White as possible substitutes. 

Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. ET with coverage on MSG, MSG GO and New York Red Bulls Radio in English and Spanish on TuneIn.

Coverage of Saturday’s match on MSG begins at 4:30 p.m. with Honda Red Bulls Game Night. Steve Cangialosi will have the primary play-by-play responsibilities and will be alongside Shep Messing and Michelle Gingras.
