New York Red Bulls vs DC United Prediction & Match Preview

New York Red Bulls vs DC United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 3 September 2020
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.

Ben Olsen’s men have been struggling to deliver a good performance for many months now.

They are placed second to last in the table at the moment, and they would have had a 100% winless record if not for their victory against Inter Miami – a team that played their very first game in club history back in March, and who also have played just seven matches in total.

On top of that, the Black-and-Red are also finding it hard to perform on the road. In fact, their last win away from home had come back in September of 2019.

Meanwhile, the Metro have had minor troubles lately, but overall they have been delivering good results, and also have been on a roll at home.

And to further pile on, they have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years.

Likely, expect New York Red Bulls to dominate proceedings this Thursday.

New York Red Bulls vs DC United: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Chris Armas’s men have recorded 12 of the former 14 overall wins.
  • They recorded a 0-3 win away from home the last time these two met on the pitch.
  • They had scored two or more goals in eight of the former eleven overall fixtures.
  • At this stadium, the hosts had registered wins in eight of the previous eleven encounters, and the other three games had ended in draws.

New York Red Bulls vs DC United: Prediction

Olsen’s men have won just once in the past twelve-month period, and this sole win had come against Inter Miami – the absolute worst team in the MLS.

And on the road, they have won just thrice in the past 17 months.  On the other hand, their counterparts are unbeaten at home in the past 12-month period, and at present they are on a three-game winning run at this stadium.

Moreover, they have also lost just thrice since October of 2019.

Going on, the Black-and-Red have been one of the worst teams in the MLS this campaign, and on top of all that, they have a terribly unimpressive h2h record against this opponent over the years.

Taking into account all these observations, expect a winning performance from the New York Red Bulls this Thursday.
