New York Red Bulls vs Philadelphia Union Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

New York Red Bulls were involved in a third consecutive draw, as they could only pick up a 1-1 draw with Chicago Fire. Bradley Wright Phillips provided an advantage after just seven minutes, but the away team conceded in the 66th minute through Nemanja Nikolic. Philadelphia Union went winless five league matches after only managing a 1-1 draw with Minnesota United. Even though Charles Sapong provided a lead for the away team after just five minutes, Minnesota were able to get back into the game just before half-time through Ethan Finlay. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The last five games between Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union have been won by the former. This impressive record is further strengthened by Philadelphia’s poor away record. Jim Curtin’s team has managed a single away win this season. The last six home games for New York Red Bulls against Philadelphia Union have four wins for the home outfit. I would go with a New York Red Bulls win. Philadelphia Union have scored in each of the last six away games against the Red Bulls, who do not have a clean sheet in the last six league outings. Four of the last six home games for Red Bulls and six away games for Philadelphia have been with more than 2.5 goals. I see tremendous value backing this game to produce over 2.5 goals and also witness both teams to score.

New York Red Bulls win – 8/15

Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score – 21/20

New York Red Bulls Preview

The last few games have seen New York Red Bulls struggle to close games. As a result, they have managed a return of just one win in five. This mediocre run of form threatens to put the club out of the top six with Atlanta United and Montreal Impact just two and five points behind respectively. The primary concern for manager Jesse Marsh will be the lack of clean sheets at the club. The Red Bulls have not managed a shutout in the last six league outings, while 39 goals conceded in the 28 matches is a relatively high figure. The Red Bulls have scored only 37 goals in these games. Bradley Wright Phillips leads the scoring charts at New York Red Bulls with 15 for the season.

New York Red Bulls Team News

Mike Grella (knee) and Gideon Baah (leg) are long-term absentees, while Daniel Royer (knee) and Aurelien Collin (heel) are doubtful for the game.

Philadelphia Union Preview

The lack of a win in the last five league games continues to see Philadelphia Union at the danger of dropping to the bottom of the table. The club has picked up only three points from the last five league outings, and it keeps them four points ahead of DC United with six games left in the season. The path for the season was set early in the campaign, when Philadelphia struggled to get the first win of the season for the first eight weeks. Charles Sapong is the 2017 top scorer at Philadelphia with 13 league goals.

Jay Simpson (personal) and Fabian Herbers (hernia) are the players unavailable for Jim Curtin steam.
