New York Red Bulls vs Vancouver Whitecaps Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

New York Red Bulls were able to sustain a top six place in the Eastern conference despite a 4-2 loss against Toronto FC. The home team were able to get a 2-0 lead through Justin Morrow’s brace, but goals from Gonzalo Veron and Daniel Royer (penalty) pulled Red Bulls back on level terms. Yet, late goals from Victor Vasquez (penalty) and Justin Morrow secured a win for Toronto. Vancouver Whitecaps produced a sucker punch to get a 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City at Children’s Mercy Park. Erik Hurtado scored the only goal in the 53rd minute as Kansas City missed several chances – including a penalty. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The recent matches between Vancouver Whitecaps and New York Red Bulls have been dominated by the former with three wins in the last four MLS games. Surprisingly, the Red Bulls are without a home win over Vancouver Whitecaps in three attempts, while the Whitecaps have been able to claim a win in the last two visits to the Red Bull Arena. This record coupled with Red Bulls being winless in the last nine games is likely to see a victory for the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Six out of the recent seven matches for New York Red Bulls have seen goals at both ends of the pitch. Even though Vancouver are top of the Western Conference, their defence has not been outstanding after just two clean sheets in the last seven. I see value in backing this game to witness both teams to score at least a goal.

Vancouver Whitecaps win – 4/7

Both teams to score – 4/6

New York Red Bulls Preview

New York Red Bulls are in danger of missing out on the play-off places if the club do not become a victory from one of the three remaining MLS games. Jesse Marsch sees his team have a four-point advantage over Montreal Impact. Apart from depending on the other team’s results, the Red Bulls also have to hope for a victory in one of the three matches to establish a seven point lead. This would see the club make it to the top six. Bradley Wright Phillips leads the scoring charts at the Red Bulls with 16 to his name.

New York Red Bulls Team News

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

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps come on the confidence inspiring victory at Children’s Mercy Park. While the team certainly did not nominate this encounter, a victory at this ground is certainly a special feeling as they have been able to end Kansas City’s 24 game unbeaten run at home. The last few months have seen Vancouver was to really make up ground in the table and the team now have a four-point advantage over second placed Portland Timbers. This gap could potentially become seven points with Vancouver winning the game in hand. This would see Vancouver top the Western Conference irrespective of the other results.

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

Cristian Bolanos is suspended for the game, while Matias Laba (cruciate ligament), David Edgar (knee), and Brett Levis (cruciate ligament) are unavailable for the game.
