New York Red Bulls vs Barcelona
Date: Sunday, 31 July 2022
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
There’s no question as to who won this transfer window, and it will be none other than Joan Laporta’s Barcelona. They just simply manhandled every other team until they submitted to the genius of the man who is determined to bring the old Catalan club back to its glory. And against the New York Red bulls this Sunday, they will be targeting nothing but a huge win.
The Red Bulls might be one of the best teams in the MLS but it needs to be made clear that they are trying to lock horns with one of the best teams in possibly all of the world.
And to make matters worse for the American team, there is now an intense competition between players to find starting spots in Barcelona.
Moreover, reigning FIFA the Best winner Robert Lewandowski is yet to find the back of the net for his new club and he will be eager to get going right away.
It was a tough few years for the club and now they truly believe that they are back, and against an inexperienced opponent, they will be just too much to handle.
On top of that, the Red Bulls are also going through a rather unimpressive stretch of performances as of now.
Taking into account these observations, expect a victory for Barcelona this Sunday.
