The Red Bulls look to start the MLS Cup Playoffs on the right foot as they take on the San Jose Earthquakes tonight at Buck Shaw Stadium in the first leg of a home-and-home semifinal series. The team arrived on Thursday and had a one-hour training session yesterday, making final preparations for the most important game of the season.
New York is missing forwards Thierry Henry and Salou Ibrahim and midfielder Tony Tchani due to injury, paving the way for 17-year-old Red Bull Academy product Juan Agudelo to make his first-ever MLS start, playing alongside Juan Pablo Angel. Here is the lineup for today:
Substitutes: Sutton, Borman, Petke, Robinson, Chinn, Hall, Ubiparipovic
Kickoff is set for 10:00 PM and the match will be televised live on MSG+2 and TeleFutura. MSG will also broadcast the match in progress starting at 10:30 PM. Make sure you follow our Twitter feed (@newyorkredbulls) for instant updates during the game. Enjoy the match and let’s go Red Bulls!
