Houston Dynamo vs New York Red Bulls
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 4 July 2019
Kick-off at 02:00 UK/ 03:00 CET
Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium (Houston).
Houston is going through a rough stretch as of now. They are winless in their last five match-days and lost the last three as well. Their place in the playoff mix is threatened, and with Real Salt Lake, the side just below them being paired with Columbus Crew, one of the worst in the whole of MLS, they are faced with an ousting in the immediate future.
The Bulls are placed fifth in the table, and importantly, have matches in hand. Right now, they lag just five points behind the topper of their conference, and should the team go on to win these ties in hand, the pole position is an attainable target.
The last day they recorded a win over Chicago Fire, and the only loss they have experienced in the last five match-days was against Philadelphia, the best of the East.

Houston Dynamo vs New York Red Bulls Prediction
Houston lost their last four matches in a row and conceded twice or more in their last five. They were also winless in eight of their last ten games, and lost at home the last day, conceding thrice.
Meanwhile, the Bulls were unbeaten in nine of their last eleven fixtures and won seven of them as well. They also scored two or more goals in their last six battles and won two of their last three on the road.
Importantly, seven of the last ten h2h encounters at this venue saw the Bulls registering two or more goals, and the last time these two met, the Bulls registered a win. As such, expect them to avoid a loss this week.
Going on to goals, 20 of the last 21 face-to-face meetings saw the home side scoring goals. Moreover, eight of the last thirteen such clashes and seven of the last ten at this venue had both teams on the scorecard.
