New York Red Bulls vs DC United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

New York Red Bulls lost a second consecutive match, as they suffered a 3-2 loss against Columbus Crew at the MAPFRE Stadium. Jesse Marsch’s team were undone by set pieces, as goals from Jonathan Mensah and Joshua Williams – either side of a Justin Meram’s goal – proved crucial. Bradley Wright Phillips and Gonzalo Veron (penalty) were the scorers for the Red Bulls. DC United made an emphatic return to form by beating San Jose Earthquakes 4-0 at the RFK stadium. Patrick Mullins came in with an outstanding display to score all four goals in the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

DC United were able to score all four goals against San Jose either through set pieces or crosses into the box. New York Red Bulls conceded two of the three goals against Columbus Crew in a set piece situation. DC United are the four team coming into the game with four wins in the last six, while the Red Bulls’ last victory was in the middle of August. Yet, an away game is a major Achilles heel for DC United after having won just three this season and having lost five out of the six trips to the Red Bull Arena. I would go with a win for New York Red Bulls.

New York Red Bulls have kept five clean sheets in the last six home matches against DC United, who are the lowest scorers in the division with just 27 goals. United have scored less than a goal per game in the away matches. I would go with New York Red Bulls clean sheet.

New York Red Bulls Preview

Set pieces were the undoing for New York Red Bulls in the recent trip to the Avaya stadium. It puts the club at a major risk of missing out on the play-offs at a crucial time. The club may have a three-point advantage over Montreal Impact, but there are other teams – like New England Revolution – still with a chance of getting into the top six. Confidence is certainly down at the club after going winless in the last six league matches. Yet, the team are at home for three of the next five games and it gives them a chance to build on the form. Bradley Wright Phillips is the top scorer at the Red Bulls with 16 goals this season.

New York Red Bulls Team News

Gideon Baah (leg), Mike Grella (knee), Daniel Royer (knee), and Aurelien Collin (heel) are the players who remain on the sidelines for the Red Bulls.

DC United Preview

The home victory against San Jose Earthquakes may not be enough to kick-start a play-off dream at DC United, but it certainly makes the club become positive about moving away from the bottom of the Eastern conference table. Even after having scored four goals in the recent match, DC United remain as the worst offensive team in the division with only 27 goals from the 30 league matches. Even though Colorado Rapids are also level with a similar record, they have played one game fewer. Luciano Acosta leads the scoring chart with five league goals.

DC United Team News

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