Head Coach Chris Armas will debut two major changes to the New York Red Bulls Starting XI.

Florian Valot and Red Bulls Academy product Omir Fernandez will both start for New York in Mexico on Tuesday night in Leg 2 of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League Quarterfinals. 

The Red Bulls are facing an uphill climb, down 2-0 heading into the second matchup against Club Santos Laguna.

Bradley Wright-Phillips will start, with Kaku and Daniel Royer getting the nod, as well. Sean Davis will round out the midfield.

Connor Lade, Tim Parker, Aaron Long and Michael Amir Murillo start along the back line for the Red Bulls.

Luis Robles captains the side and starts in goal.

Armas will have Mathias Jørgensen, Andreas Ivan, Kyle Duncan, Amro Tarek, Marc Rzatkowski and Derrick Etienne, Jr. Ryan Meara will be the team's backup goalkeeper.

Jørgensen makes his first gameday roster after being signed by the club in February.

Kickoff is slated for 9 p.m. ET with coverage on Galavision, YahooSports.com and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.
