This was known on Saturday but some of us do things for a living.

New York Red Bulls II will host the Pittsburgh Riverhounds in the first round of the 2015 USL playoffs.

It will be the inaugural playoff game for the MLS reserve side's inaugural season.

Pittsburgh will travel to Red Bull Arena on September 26 for a 5pm game. The winner of the matchup plays the Rochester Rhinos in the conference semifinals.

In 2015 NYRB II defeated the Riverhounds 3-2 at home early in the season, before falling on the road 3-0 later on.

Going into the playoffs NYRB II has lost the last two on the road, while Pittsburgh is unbeaten in their last five (2-0-3).

This is a lineup prediction (4-2-3-1) for NYRB II because I need to hit 150 words:

GK: Santiago Castano
LB: Colin Heffron
CB: Jamie Thomas
CB: Mike da Fonte
RB: Shawn McLaws
DM: Speedy Williams
DM: Bolu Akinyode
LM: Marius Obekop
CM: Leo Stoz
RM: Manolo Sanchez
ST: Stefano Bonomo
