Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls
US Open Cup
Date: Sunday, 17 June 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK
Venue: Talen Energy Stadium (Chester).

Philadelphia Union are going to host New York Red Bulls in the eight-finals of US Open Cup at Talen Energy Stadium.

The hosts are in variable form as they celebrated two wins and suffered the same number of defeats in the last five matches. In the previous round, Jim Curtin’s side found their way through after convincing 5-0 victory over Richmond Kickers, however this clash is going to be much tougher challenge. In MLS, Philadelphia United are fighting for the place in the playoffs and they are one point behind Orlando City.

The visitors are enjoying a good campaign and they are sitting on the 4th place of MLS table. They have been very efficient as Bradley Wright-Phillips and the lads managed to find the back of the net 30 times. New York Red Bulls haven’t suffered a defeat in the last three matches and in the previous round of US Open Cup they managed to eliminate their local rivals New York City pretty convincingly in a 4-0 win.

Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls: Head-to-head

Their last two head to head clashes ended with a goalless draw, and last time these two sides faced in the same competition, they entered an extra time after a draw in the regular 90 minutes. Philadelphia Union failed to beat their rivals in the last four encounters.

Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls: Predictions

This one should be another tight clash of these two teams and it wouldn’t be surprising if it finishes with another draw. The hosts are playing pretty well at home pitch and they might bring this clash to the extra time once again.

As their head to head clashes are mostly low scoring ones, in this one we shouldn’t expect many goals. In their last four encounters we haven’t seen more than two goals in ninety minutes and the same should happen again.
