The New York Red Bulls return home to Red Bull Arena this evening to face the Houston Dynamo. The big news is that newly acquired attacking midfielder Dwayne De Rosario will not start -- Mehdi Ballouchy (somehow) keeps his place in midfield, while De Rosario is on the bench. Your lineups:
Red Bulls (4-4-2): Bouna Coundoul; Jan Gunnar Solli, Rafael Marquez, Tim Ream, Roy Miller; Dane Richards, Teemu Tainio, Mehdi Ballouchy, Joel Lindpere; Juan Agudelo, Thierry Henry
Subs: Alex Horwath, Carl Robinson, Stephen Keel, Matt Kassel, Carlos Mendes, Dwayne De Rosario, Luke Rodgers
Dynamo: Tally Hall, Hunter Freeman, André Hainault, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe, Danny Cruz, Geoff Cameron, Lovel Palmer, Brad Davis, Will Bruin, Brian Ching
Subs: Tyler Deric, Eddie Robinson, Mike Chabala, Cam Weaver, Alex Dixon, Kofi Sarkodie, Jason Garey
The Red Bulls lineup is identical to the team Backe picked for the first game of the season, hopefully they will have more success in front of goal than they did two weeks ago.
