Team News: Charlotte FC
Chris Hegardt (Knee Injury) and Vinicius Mello (Foot Injury) won’t be available for Charlotte FC manager Christian Lattanzio.
It seems likely that Charlotte FC should line up in a 4-1-3-2 system this time, handing starts to Kristijan Kahlina, Jaylin Lindsey, Guzmán Corujo, Christian Makoun, Joseph Mora, Brandt Bronico, Christian Ortiz, Jordy Alcívar, Ben Bender, Andre Shinyashiki and Daniel Rios.
Team News: New York Red Bulls
New York Red Bulls boss Gerhard Struber has to choose a team with limited availability. Lucas Monzón (Unknown Injury) and Andrés Reyes (Foot Injury) won’t be making appearances.
It’s our belief that Red Bulls appear most likely to utilise a 3-5-2 system using Carlos Coronel, Thomas Edwards, Sean Nealis, Aaron Long, Frankie Amaya, Dru Yearwood, Lewis Morgan, C. Cásseres Jr, John Tolkin, Luquinhas and Patryk Klimala.
Our feeling is that Charlotte FC will need to push hard to get anything against this New York Red Bulls outfit who we think should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought 0-1 victory for New York Red Bulls at the end of the 90 minutes.
There should be little in it.
