New York Red Bulls vs Minnesota United: Preview and Predictions

New York Red Bulls vs Minnesota United
Date: Saturday, 24 March 2018
Kick-Off at 23:00 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Harrison)

New York Red Bulls are going to host Minnesota United in the 4th round of MLS. Both sides want to continue with their good start of the season.

Home side opened the campaign with a convincing 4-0 win over Portland Timbers, however they were defeated in their first away match against Real Salt Lake. Bradley Wright-Phillips is going to be their main attacking force once again and he already managed to find the net this season. Last time, the hosts booked the last playoff place and reached the quarter finals. Although they allowed only two home defeats, they have played a lot of draw matches in front of their fans and they need to reduce their number this season in order not to have troubles finding their place in the final stages.

After an opening defeat against San Jose Earthquakes, the visitors managed to tie two wins. Their matches at the start of the campaign are pretty efficient and we can see goals in both nets. Last season wasn’t successful for them as they managed to win only 36 points and they were far from the playoffs zone. Adrian Heath’s defence was the weakest in the competition, while the away displays were below the expected level. After this promising start, they might have better campaign, but they need to tighten up the defence.

New York Red Bulls vs Minnesota United: Prediction

Although the away side is in a good form, the hosts are strong favourites in this one and should be capable enough of celebrating a victory.

We are going to put our money on high number of goals once again and this time we could see at least two by the half time.
