Columbus Crew vs New York Red Bulls Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Columbus Crew extended their unbeaten run to six MLS matches after a 2-2 draw with Vancouver Whitecaps. Fredy Montero provided the lead for the home team just 15 minutes into the game. However, Ola Kamara scored against his former club in the 19th minute while Kekuta Manneh’s fabulous strike put Columbus ahead in the 63rd minute. Vancouver’s chase for an equaliser paid dividends close to the final whistle, as Tony Tchani capitalised on a brilliant ball from Montero. New York Red Bulls could only manage a goalless draw with Philadelphia Union at the Red Bull Arena. The home team dominated the game with no less than eight shots on target but were unable to find a way through. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The away trip to MAPFRE stadium comes at a bad time for New York Red Bulls, who have been struggling for wins. They are up against a Columbus Crew outfit who have won four out of the recent five league matches at home. Furthermore, the home team has come out successful in five of the six recent games between the two clubs. I would go with a win for Columbus Crew.

New York Red Bulls have conceded more than 1.5 goals in four out of the last five away games. Columbus Crew have been quite prolific in recent home matches after scoring more than 1.5 goals in three out of the last four games at the MAPFRE stadium. I would go with Columbus Crew to score more than 1.5 goals in this match.

Columbus Crew Preview

Columbus Crew are close to cementing their place in the top six of the Eastern Conference and reach the play-offs. The team has been able to establish a substantial five-point advantage over Montreal Impact, who sit just outside the top six. As a result, manager Gregg Berhalter may be starting to think about the play-offs. One of the few shocks for Columbus Crew may come in the form of teams below them putting a string of good results. Unlike the teams below, Columbus Crew have only four matches left in the MLS 2017 regular season. Ola Kamara was able to extend his lead in the goalscoring charts to 16 for the season.

Columbus Crew Team News

Gaston Sauro (cruciate ligament), Ben Swanson (ankle), and Waylon Francis (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Columbus Crew.

New York Red Bulls Preview

Manager Jesse Marsch is now waking up to the real possibility of New York Red Bulls missing out on the play-off places at the final stages of the regular season. The club are sixth in the table with five matches left in the season. Even though the club have a six-point advantage over Montreal Impact, Marsch has seen his team go on a very mediocre run of form. New York Red Bulls have not been able to win any league match in the last five, and they have been involved in four straight draws. Bradley Wright Phillips is the club’s top scorer with 15 goals.

New York Red Bulls Team News

Mike Grella (knee), Gideon Baah (leg), and Aurelien Collin (heel) are the players ruled out, while Daniel Royer (knee) is doubtful for the game.
