New York Red Bulls vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 23 May 2019
Kick-Off 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Harrison).
New York Red Bulls finally managed to find the winning formula after a sloppy start to the new MLS season. Chris Armas’ men got their campaign up and running with a fantastic run of four wins in past five league rounds. Such spell of form helped the team break into the top six in the ladder and the Bulls will have a nice chance to keep it going on Wednesday evening when Western Conference strugglers Vancouver Whitecaps come to visit Red Bull Arena.
The Canadian outfit played hot and cold so far in the season. It was quite expected from the team led by Marc Dos Santos if we know the Caps saw 15 players get in and 21 get out during the off-season. Vancouver Whitecaps currently occupy 9th place on the West. They will come into this low on confidence, though, after claiming just one point in past two league affairs with Atlanta United and Sporting KC.

New York Red Bulls vs Vancouver Whitecaps Prediction
The Bulls ended Atlanta United’s four-win streak on Sunday evening in spite of the fact their center-back Tim Parker was sent off ten minutes before the half time. New York showed a fantastic team spirit later on and deservedly earned the match-winner through substitute Tom Barlow.
It was a huge confidence-boosting victory for the Bulls. We expect them to build on it and make it five wins in last six games here against Vancouver. Home win looks to be a banker bet at 1.44 odds, while you can also back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at 2.25.
