Playoff Seeding On The Line In Regular Season Home Finale Against Pittsburgh

HARRISON, N.J. (October 12, 2018) – New York Red Bulls II (12-8-13, 49 points) return home to MSU Soccer Park for their 2018 regular season home finale on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds (15-4-14, 59 points). Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. ET and can be seen live on ESPN+.

Following Tuesday’s match that saw NYRB II clinch their fourth-straight berth in the USL Cup Playoffs, NYRB II turn their attention to playoff seeding.

Currently tied for fifth-place with Indy Eleven, NYRB II can see themselves finishing as high as fifth, or as low as eighth seed heading into the first round of the playoffs.

A win Sunday coupled with an Indy Eleven draw or loss will see New York begin the playoffs on the road against fourth-seeded Charleston Battery.

New York have gone 10-3-3 at home this season.

NYRB II have faced Pittsburgh once this season, dropping a 3-0 result away in June.

Sitting at 69 goals on the season, New York is tied for second in the USL in goals scored, just one behind league-leaders Louisville City FC.

Following Sunday’s match, NYRB II will hit the road for the opening round of the USL Cup Playoffs against an opponent to be determined.
