New York RB vs SJ Earthquakes
Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 20th July 2017
Kick off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
New York RB successfully bounced back after losing the city derby with New York City 0-2 on the home patch.
The Bulls clinched three consecutive wins (two in the US Open Cup) in the meantime and they are ready to keep the good form going this Wednesday when they are going to host SN Earthquakes at Red Bull Arena.
New York RB
Jesse Marsch’s men picked up back-to-back wins over New England in both US Open Cup and MLS.
The league victory kept the Bulls in touch with the top six teams in the eastern Conference, but making it four wins on the trot will be quite a challenge against in-form fifth-placed team on the West.
The hosts will be weakened as their key man in the defense Kemar Lawrence is away at CONCACAF Gold Cup representing Jamaica.
San Jose’s Chris Wondolowski is not with the US squad even though he had a strong campaign netting eight goals for the ‘Quakes so far in MLS.
The team led by Chris Leitch (just took charge of the team in June) quickly recovered from the 4-2 loss to Atlanta United as San Jose bagged as many s seven goals past LA Galaxy (US Open Cup) and Eintracht Frankfurt (club friendly).
New York RB vs SJ Earthquakes: Head to head
The hosts lead the tie by a single win, but we can say that both teams generally pick up points on the home ground when facing each other.
Only two of 15 H2H encounters between the two sides saw visiting teams coming out victorious.
New York RB vs SJ Earthquakes: Prediction
‘Quakes favour ultra attacking football in this term of MLS and we would not be surprised at all to see a goal fest this Wednesday at Red Bull Arena.
Over 2.5 goals FT seems to be a banker bet at 4/5 odds, while braver punters can go for the longshot and chase Over 4.5 goals FT at the odds of 9/2.
