Historically speaking, New York Red Bulls has the advantage against SJ Earthquakes. The team from the Big Apple has 5 victories, 3 draws, and only 2 losses against SJ Earthquakes.

Lineup news concerning SJ Earthquakes and New York RB
SJ Earthquakes will be happy to hear about New York RB’s recent misfortune
SJ Earthquake’s Lineup
Coach Matias Almeyda has no worries when it comes to his players – everyone is well and ready for the game. In the pre-season friendlies, San Jose did very well in attack and we expect the key players for this game to be the attackers – Cade Cowell, Cristian Espinoza, and Javier Lopez as they were the key contributors in the pre-season.
New York RB’s Lineup
Coach Gerhard Struber will be wondering what to do in the heart of the defense as Aaron Long has an Achillies tendon rupture and will miss this game. The team scored a goal in each of the 3 pre-season friendlies but also allowed a total of 8 goals so the defensive issues are there. We expect Aaron Long’s injury to affect the defense and Carlos Coronel to concede 1 or two goals.
