New York Red Bulls vs Toronto FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

New York Red Bulls reached the semi-finals of the MLS Cup 2017 finals following a 4-0 victory over Chicago Fire. Bradley Wright Phillips and Sacha Kljestan came up with two early goals that took the confidence out of Chicago Fire, and the passage into the semi-finals were confirmed when Daniel Royer and Gonzalo Veron scored late goals for the Red Bulls. Toronto have been able to reach the knockout stages of the competition as the Supporters’ Shield winners. They were able to get a 2-2 draw with Atlanta United in the recent match. A penalty from Yamil Asad was cancelled out by Jozy Altidore, while Josef Martinez’ second-half goal was cancelled out by Sebastian Giovinco with six minutes left in the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The head-to-head games between New York Red Bulls and Toronto have been closely contested with the Red Bulls managing just one win in the recent six. Toronto have been able to get three wins in this period, but two of those victories have been at home. Four out of the last five home games for New York Red Bulls have been a draw, while Toronto will also consider this to be a positive result. I would go with a draw. Toronto has scored over 1.5 goals in four out of the last five away games. Even though the team has failed to score in two out of the recent four away games against New York Red Bulls, Toronto have been the best attacking team in the division by a significant margin. I would bet on Toronto to score over 1.5 goals.

New York Red Bulls Preview

New York Red Bulls have made it to the semi-finals despite finishing in the sixth position of the Eastern conference table. The team had only a five-point advantage over New England Revolution in terms of qualifying for the play-offs. However, the team has been working towards building momentum in recent weeks and they have achieved two wins in the last three. The presence of Bradley Wright Phillips and an early goal are factors that would significantly increase the chances of a New York Red Bulls victory. The Red Bulls have been drawing at half-time and full-time in four out of the last six home matches. Bradley Wright Phillips is the club’s leading scorer this season with 18.

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

Toronto FC Preview

Toronto are installed as early favourites for the MLS Cup 2017 after having won the league table by a considerable margin. Even after having secured the top spot in the regular season, Toronto have shown no signs of slowing down and have been quite consistent with the results. The team has failed to win just three of the last 11 MLS games. Such consistent from has been the reason behind the team ending the campaign with 69 points – 12 more than their nearest contender New York City. Sebastian Giovinco is the leading scorer at the club with 16 goals this season.

Toronto FC Team News

Toronto manager Greg Vanney does not have injuries or suspensions coming into the match.
