Red Bulls Lawrence On Bench, Field Conditions Questionable At Pantoja
New York Red Bull defender Kemal Lawrence won't start, but according to head coach Chris Armas, the Jamaican international will be available off the bench for New York if needed in tomorrow night's important first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League first round match at Club Atletico Pantoja's Estadio Felix Sanchez.
What Armas isn't sure yet are the current field conditions at the home town's soccer stadium located in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
The stadium can hold 27,000 spectators. The field has often been known to be less than steller. Armas, speaking today to the media simply said he's not sure what the field looks like at the moment, but is quite aware that his side won't be playing on field conditions anything like those at Red Bull Arena..
Tomorrow's 8:00 pm game-time weather should be about 68 F, with humidity hitting 87% and 10 mph winds.
The match is available for viewing on Yahoosports.com in English.
The 2nd leg will be played at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday, February 27 at 8:00 pm with coverage again on Yahoosports.com in English..www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/02/19/chris-armas-new-york-red-bulls-ready-unknown-atletico-pantoja
