Toronto FC vs New York Red Bulls
2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 1 July 2018
Kick-Off at 21:30 UK
Venue: BMO Field (Toronto, Ontario).
Toronto have largely struggled for consistency and they host New York Red Bulls sitting in the bottom of the Eastern Conference table, coming into the match after a disappointing 2-1 loss at New York City where they conceded two second-half goals. They now hope to bounce back in front of the home crowd but Greg Vanney’s men have struggled to impress.
New York Red Bulls have been as inconsistent on the road but they come in a somewhat better shape, having earned three wins in their last five outings across competitions. They’ve beaten Dallas 3-0 last week and now surely come very motivated to build on the success away from home, earning the first win since late May and 1-3 upset at Atlanta.
Red Bulls have been regularly netting away goals as well and they’ll be a very tough nut to crack at BMO Field, hoping to capitalize on the rivals’ recent woes. Indeed, the Reds have earned just one win in five games and it’s highly questionable if they have what it takes to hold off the visitors at this point.
Toronto FC vs New York Red Bulls: Head-to-head
Red Bulls have beaten Toronto 0-1 in their last head-to-head clash, snatching all three points here in November 2017.
They have thus ended Toronto’s streak of two wins in a row and a four-game winless streak in matchups.
We have seen some very narrow clashes and goals on both ends in four of their last five clashes.
