The hosts have to make something impossible happen on Friday. Not only they have to score 3 goals but they must not allow the visitors to score as well.  In the last 7 matches they played across all venues, they lost only 2 matches and won the remaining as well. The main highlight is that both these defeats were in away matches.

They have not lost a home match since July this year. At present they are on a 7 match win streak at home. But in 6 of those games, they have scored a maximum of two goals and 5 of those 7 matches had a final score of under 2.5 goals. In 5 games in that run, they maintained a clean sheet too. So they defend better at home also.

The visitors have been on a 3 match win streak and their recent loss was an away fixture to Toronto FC. Over 2.5 goals were scored I 5 of their recent 6 games across all venues. From the last 5, away matches Atlanta won 3 but then lost 2 on the trot also. Three of those matches had a final score with more than 2.5 goals in total.

So we are in for a nail-biting game on Friday for Sure. With the hosts looking unbeatable at home the visitors may be looking for a crucial away goal, which may be important if the game is drawn.

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

  • In the last 5 h2h games, New York leads with 3 wins and a loss.
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in total from 3 of their last 5 matches across all venues.
  • The Red Bulls have never lost to Atlanta in front of their own home crowd.
  • Under 2.5 goals came in both the games played between them at this venue.

New York Red Bulls vs Atlanta United: Prediction

There is no doubt that there will be goals in this game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of the last 5 occasions they met each other. In eth last 5 away matches of the visitors a similar score was produced. We can expect the home forwards to put up a great performance in front of goal and with the home crowd behind them, they will surely do so. So a bet can be placed on a score with over 2.5 goals with 1.62 odd.

The Red Bulls have a great home form which is clear from the 7 game win streak they are currently on. I don’t think Atlanta will win here as they have lost 2 of their recent matches on the road. Thus a bet can be placed on NY Red Bulls to win with 1.89 odd.

But it will be a close match and I think Atlanta may hold on to their lead and will progress into the finals.

  • Red Bulls to win @ 1.89 (8/9).
