The New York Red Bulls could use a victory after a rough 3-6 start to the season. The Red Bulls’ struggles start with a defense that’s allowed 17 goals in nine matches, which is tied with FC Dallas for the most in the MLS. However, the New York Red Bulls are coming off a shutout victory last Friday, so maybe that was the start to what could be a turning point for this team. Mike Grella leads New York with three goals, Sacha Kljestan has five assists and Bradley Wright-Phillips has 32 shots. Defensively, Luis Robles has come away with 27 saves on 43 shots faced. The New York Red Bulls have lost five of their last six regular season road games.
These two teams have played three times, and the Red Bulls have won two of those meetings. Orlando’s only victory over New York was in September. The last two matches between these two clubs has produced a combined 12 goals.
The Red Bulls are 0-4-0 on the road this season, and Orlando has done nothing but snagged points on its home field. You have to play the trends here and pick Orlando City SC to get the victory.
