New York Red Bulls vs Philadelphia Union
USA – 2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 27th May 2018
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (New York).

New York Red Bulls on form are the best team in the eastern conference where they have won 4 games in a row. This has put them up to 4th position on 21 points and they can close the gap to league leaders Atlanta United if they can get a win here. Currently the gap is just four points.

Apart from Montreal Impact Red Bulls are the only team in both the eastern and western conference who have not drawn a game so far this season. Last weekend they got a fantastic 3-1 victory over the league leaders which stopped Atlanta from sprinting away and the club are in great form with a lot of confidence.

Philadelphia Union are 7th and seven points behind Red Bull so this game could be a good chance for them to close that gap, although they will be the underdogs to do so.

They are in good form having won their last 2 games which includes last weekend’s super result when they overcame Real Salt Lake 4-1. Philadelphia did win their first away game a few weeks ago but they have a poor record on the road where they have lost 4 from 5 games.
