Cincinnati vs New York Red Bulls Prediction
After losing 3 away league games in a row, Red Bulls finally secured an away win last time out to Sporting Kansas City. They are currently the best away side in MLS so far, unbeaten in 7 out of the 10 away league fixtures played.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati remain unbeaten in their last 2 home matches. But they have lost half of their home games in MLS this season. They even lost their last h2h at home by 1 goal to nil.
We therefore feel that an away win or draw seems to be the likeliest outcome.
