With Kaku unavailable due to the red card he obtained in Kansas City, Head Coach Chris Armas will turn to Vincent Bezecourt to fill in for the talented midfielder, when the Red Bulls take on the New England Revolution on Saturday night.
Tonight will mark the third league start of the season for the French midfielder and he'll play alongside Marc Rzatkowski, Daniel Royer, Sean Davis and Cristian Cásseres, Jr.
Bradley Wright-Phillips, who has eight career goals against New England, will play up top.
The Red Bulls backline will be anchored by Connor Lade, Aaron Long, Tim Parker and Michael Amir Murillo. Kemar Lawrence did not travel due to an illness.
Luis Robles will start in goal and captain the side.
The Red Bulls snapped their three-game losing streak last week against Sporting Kansas City, and will be looking to get their first win since they beat San Jose, 4-1, at Red Bull Arena on March 16. New York has had recent success at Gillette Stadium, owning a 2-4-0 mark in the last six matches. Prior to New York’s 2-0 win at Gillette in 2014, the Red Bulls were 4-18-7 when visiting the Revolution, with the last five matches in New England have been decided by one goal.
Armas will have Amro Tarek, Kyle Duncan, Derrick Etienne Jr., Andreas Ivan, Omir Fernandez and Brian White available off the bench. Ryan Meara will serve as backup goalkeeper.
Coverage of Saturday’s match will be broadcast on MSG, MSG Go and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.
