DC United vs New York Red Bulls Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

DC United come into the game after having suffered a heavy 4-0 loss against Portland Timbers in the recent match. Despite being keen on avoiding the bottom places, DC United were unable to prevent a heavy defeat. Portland’s opening goal through Diego Valeri’s penalty just before half-time was crucial, as the home team scored further goals through Alvas Powell and Sebastian Blanco (2). New York Red Bulls were involved in a goalless with Atlanta United during the weekend. While the team dominated the first half, New York went close through the likes of Bradley Wright Phillips. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The recent games between New York Red Bulls and DC United have seen a prevalence of draws, as both teams have been unable to exert an advantage. DC United have picked up just one win in the recent six games against the Red Bulls, while there have been three draws in the last four meetings. New York Red Bulls have picked up two draws in the last five away games, but DC United have managed three wins in the last four home games. I would go with a win for DC United. Bradley Wright Phillips has a strong record against DC United after scoring eight goals and creating three in his 16 appearances. Even though he was unable to score in the game against Atlanta, the 32-year-old came closest in the second half. I would bet on Wright Phillips to score anytime in the game.

DC United Preview

DC United failed to put up much of a fight in their efforts to avoid finishing the bottom of the Eastern conference table. Just one win and a draw in the last five matches mean that DC United will be finishing several points behind Orlando City, who have a seven-point lead coming into the final weekend of the regular season games. As it stands, DC United are hoping to avoid finishing as the worst offensive team in the division. The club has struggled throughout the season and have only managed 30 league goals – one fewer than Colorado Rapids.

DC United Team News

Taylor Kemp (hip), Chris Rolfe (concussion), Robert Vincent (meniscus), Bill Hamid (back), and Patrick Nyarko (eye) are the players unavailable for DC United.

New York Red Bulls Preview

The victory over Vancouver Whitecaps appeared to provide a morale booster for New York Red Bulls, who had been slipping down the table for several weeks. Yet, it appears that the points against Atlanta was enough to secure passage into the play-offs, as New York Red Bulls have a five-point advantage over New England Revolution with one game left in the regular season. This unassailable lead might have not been possible without the win over Vancouver. The key objective for Jesse Marsch and his team will be to build momentum ahead of the play-offs by winning the final match. Bradley Wright Phillips is one of the leading scorers in the MLS 2017 campaign and he has 17 for the season.

New York Red Bulls Team News

Mike Grella (knee), Gideon Baah (leg), and Aurelien Collin (heel) are the players unavailable for New York Red Bulls.
