Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Wednesday, 25 August 2020
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 1:30 CET
Venue: Talen Energy Stadium (Chester).

The Union is just one point behind the Metro in the table this season. So, we can expect a tight encounter at Chester for the upcoming match. Philadelphia Union has lost only one of their league clashes so far this season, but three of their five unbeaten games account to draws in the schedule.

Their previous encounter was on the road and they shared the spoils with New England Revolution in a goalless scoreline. Even though scoring hasn’t been a constraint for the home team, the same does not apply in defending their goal. They have scored 7 goals so far and have conceded the same numbers in return.

After a double loss in their schedule in the league, New York Red Bulls could finally win their last clash in the campaign. They will visit on the back of that 1-0 win at home against New York City FC in their previous encounter in the league.

Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 3-3 draw at Chester.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the last five fixtures.
  • The visitor has recorded three of the last five overall wins.
  • The host is unbeaten in the recent two meetings at home.

Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls Prediction

With both teams around the average of 1 goal in the league so far, a BTTS looks like a strong option in the game for the punters.

Along with that, their h2h meetings held here recently have seen it ending in high-scoring affairs. Hence, the chance of another match to go over 2.5 goals in ninety minutes is probable for the match.

With their ground advantage, the host will probably create more chances in the game. Being the favorites to win, Philadelphia Union can be backed in the clash with a double chance since sharing the spoils hasn’t been a new thing for the home team in the campaign.
