Team News: New York Red Bulls
Lewis Morgan (Hip Injury), Steven Sserwadda (Sideband tear in the knee) and Serge Ngoma (Muscle Injury) will not be able to play for New York Red Bulls boss Troy Lesesne.
Team News: Austin FC
Thanks to a mainly full-strength group, there is only a single fitness worry for the Austin FC boss Josh Wolff to be concerned about. Zan Kolmanic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
We’re of the opinion that Austin FC will have to play well to put one past this New York Red Bulls outfit who we reckon should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore fancy a good tussle with a 1-0 advantage for New York Red Bulls when the full-time whistle blows.
