Philadelphia Union vs New York Red Bulls Prediction
The visitors encountered a lagging defensive back in the last away trip in the regular MLS season. Since the team has not much prominent form in the trips on the road, they are likely the lesser favorites in the bout.
Even though the Metros have defeated the U alternatively in the last six h2h encounters, the host had performed well at home in the current MLS season. Besides that, the host has lost only two of the last ten home matches in their schedule. Meanwhile, the opponents have recorded only three wins in the previous ten away fixtures in their schedule.
Apart from that, the Metros will be coming down with the 3-0 loss to Impacts in the last match away from home. Hence, considering the home ground advantage and the weak away side, it is likely to see the host crowned the winner of the game.
In the meantime, two of their last three h2h encounters hosted by the Union has seen both teams finding the back of the net. So, it is probable that the heated playoff event too will likely have goals scored at both ends of the field. As such, the home team can be expected to come out with the lead in the ninety minutes.
