New York Red Bulls vs DC United Prediction
Although the visitors have been tasting success in their last two outings, that alone does not guarantee them a positive result in this one.
The home team came out on top in their most recent game here, that too against the second-placed Philadelphia Union who were on a three-match unbeaten run. It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have admitted defeat on just five occasions in front of their home fans so far and have scored twenty-nine goals in the process while conceding just eighteen.
Furthermore, Chris Armas’s men have been faring well against this foe in their previous head to head clashes here and have emerged victoriously in eight of their last ten. Hence DC United have little or no chance of salvaging even a point from this tie.
In addition, the hosts kept a clean sheet in their most recent matchup here. Given that six of their last nine clashes here have also been low scoring ones with fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, count on New York Red Bulls to wrap things up with a goal or two at the most on the final scorecards.
