Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 18th June 2017
Kick off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Talen Energy Stadium.
New York RB will come into the game in high spirits after mid-week’s US Open Cup victory over their city rivals New York City.
The Bulls will have the chance to back it up on Sunday when they are set to play Philadelphia Union in the last game of the round.
New York will, however have a very tough task to claim points from Talen Energy Stadium which has been a fortress in the most recent period.
Zolos claimed five straight victories in front of their fans and they notched at least two goals in each of their last five outings on the home patch.
This includes a 3-1 win over USL outfit City Islanders in the US Open Cup on Wednesday evening.
Charles Sapong has been enjoying a phenomenal season as he already has eight goals to his name and he’ll be our top option for the anytime scorer pick at the sky-high 8/5 odds.
New York RB
Jesse Marsch’s men just can’t seem to find the breakthrough when they play away from Red Bull Arena.
The Bulls suffered six losses on the bounce away from home and they failed to find the back of the net in last four games along the way.
Philadelphia Union vs New York RB: Head to head

The US striker bagged a hat-trick in a demolishing 3-0 win for Zolos who now how seven wins in 14 matches with New York RB on the home pitch.
Philadelphia Union vs New York RB: Prediction
The value simply has to be with Philadelphia Union who are 13/10 to claim the victory.
Braver punters can chase the 5/2 longshot and back the hosts to keep a clean sheet.
