Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 24th June 2017
Kick off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.

The most interesting match of the round is set to be played at Red Bull Arena where the New York rivals will take on each other in the top-half-of-Eastern-Conference battle.

New York RB

The Bulls will come into the game after a last gasp 0-2 win over Philadelphia Union last Saturday.

Derrick Jones has been sent off for Phila early in the second half, but the Bulls could not break the deadlock all up until the 87th minute when Bradley Wright-Philips finally found the opener.

The team’s top scorer managed to bag a second five minutes later to confirm the victory and boost up both his and the team’s confidence ahead of one of the most important fixtures of the season.

New York City

Patrick Vieira’s men will also enter the game in high spirits after beating the reigning champions Seattle Sounders at the weekend.

It was their top scorer and legendary Spanish striker David Villa who bagged a brace to complete a second-half comeback after Roldan’s opener for the Sounders.

New York RB vs New York City: Head to head

The city rivals took on each other last week when Daniel Royer made the difference netting the only goal of the game for New York RB.

The Bull have thus continued the domination in the head to head match-up as they claimed six wins in seven encounters with the Citizens.

New York RB vs New York City: Prediction

New York City have never managed to leave Red Bull Arena undefeated and we simply have no other option but to back the Bulls to maintain this trend and claim their fifth consecutive win over the city rivals on the home patch.
