New York Red Bulls vs. Columbus Crew: Live Match Thread

This was a long time ago.
This was a long time ago.

Another Saturday, another afternoon kickoff for the New York Red Bulls, this time out in lovely Columbus, Ohio, as they take on the Columbus Crew. The Red Bulls will be hoping for a third successive win for the first time since early last season.

We mentioned the Red Bulls' injury problems ahead of this game, resulting in Stephen Keel starting alongside Markus Holgersson at central defense. However, the most surprising change is that Joel Lindpere has been benched in favor of Mehdi Ballouchy after a poor start to the season by the Estonian international and a good substitute appearance last week for the Moroccan Maradona (hat tip to our friend @ViperRBNY for that).


Red Bulls: Ryan Meara; Jan Gunnar Solli, Markus Holgersson, Stephen Keel, Roy Miller; Dane Richards, Dax McCarty, Rafael Marquez, Mehdi Ballouchy; Kenny Cooper, Thierry Henry

Bench: Jeremy Vuolo, Jonathan Borrajo, Connor Lade, Joel Lindpere, Brandon Barklage, Jhonny Arteaga, Victor Palsson

Crew: Andy Gruenebaum, Sebastian Miranda, Eric Gehrig, Chad Marshall, Shaun Francis, Kirk Urso, Milovan Mirosevic, Eddie Gaven, Bernardo Anor, Olman Vargas, Emilio Renteria

Bench: Matt Lampson, Josh Williams, Dilly Duka, Tony Tchani, Ethan Finlay, Cole Grossman, Aaron Schoenfeld

Let's win.
