DC United vs New York Red Bulls
Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 26th July 2018
Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Audi Field (Washington, D.C.).

New York Red Bulls will be away from home but there’s no doubt they will be the favourites to win this game as they take on the bottom club in the Eastern conference DC United.

With the capture of English star forward Wayne Rooney, hopes were high that DC United would be at least challenging for the play offs but they have had a terrible campaign and are 14 points behind in the play offs with just 1 win in their past five matches.

Their latest loss came against Atlanta United which was no surprise and now the team will face the Red Bulls who are in 3rd place and in good form. The visitors have won 4 out of their last 5 games and have 38 points just six behind the leaders Atlanta United. Away from home form has not been good with 1 win in their past 4 games. Still they will be expected to win this one.

DC United vs New York Red Bulls: Head to Head

When the teams last played at this stadium the Red Bulls won 2-1.

In the past 5 games the Red Bulls have managed to score at least 2 goals per meeting.

DC United vs New York Red Bulls: Prediction

The bet market is really open here giving us great value, so even though Red Bulls are favourites to win the game they are not odds on. Their away record is not great but we feel facing the bottom team who are low on confidence and given that they have good results over the last 3 years against DC United that an away victory is on the cards.
