Austin – Wolff’s men enjoy facing their Eastern adversaries?

For a week at least, this group of players got to experience what it was like being on top of the league table. Their spell atop the MLS summit wouldn’t last long though, dislodged upon the conclusion of the last round after their 1-1 draw away to Texan rivals FC Dallas meant they slipped back down into second. The point would, however, extend their unbeaten run to seven matches (W5 D2), so they are in form.

Nobody, then, could argue they aren’t deserving of their pre-match favourites tag ahead of welcoming New York Red Bulls to Q2 Stadium for the very first time. Josh Wolff’s men are on a roll and boast an almighty record when facing their rivals from the other conference, winning all six such games this season. They scored 18 in these contests whilst conceding only three, doing so by an aggregate of 10-1 as hosts.

Key Stat: Austin FC scored 2+ in all three previous home league games but would only go on to win one of these encounters (W1 D2). However, the LA Galaxy are the only visiting team all season long to shutout Los Verdes at Q2 Stadium.

New York Red Bulls – Lack of goals and road form cause for concern?

The Red Bulls are riding high in the Eastern Conference and are well on course to securing a top-seven finish that will see them extend their 2022 campaign beyond the regular season and into the MLS Cup Playoffs. Any aspirations of winning their division outright are fading, however, falling six points behind Philadelphia Union after conceding local bragging rights when losing last weekend’s River Hudson Derby.

Defeat to New York City, albeit by the solitary goal, followed a 1-1 stalemate on the road at FC Cincinnati. Their form prior to that, though, was a healthy W3 L1, so it is probably too early for panic stations. What will concern head coach Gerhard Struber is the lack of goals his side are scoring, with that a third game in a row scoring no more than once – and the sixth time that has happened across a nine-game stretch.

Key Stat: There was Under 2.5 Goals in seven of nine previous New York Red Bulls MLS matches, and in all of their last six away from home.

Austin FC Vs New York Red Bulls Betting Advice

Until a few weeks ago, both teams were in contention for the MLS Supporters Shield (awarded to the team who finishes highest in the league table at the end of the regular season). However, whereas Austin are still hanging on in there, now unbeaten in seven (W5 D2), New York Red Bulls are gradually beginning to fade even if they are still displaying an ability to chip in with wins here and there.


Austin FC Vs New York Red Bulls – Key Facts:

  • The pair are meeting for the first time in MLS. Austin have performed the better of the two sides so far this season, though, collecting 41 points from their 21 games to sit second in the Western Conference.
  • New York Red Bulls have lost pace at the top of the Eastern Conference. They’ve fallen to third, on 33 points from 21 games, largely on account of their disappointing away form. Winning only one of the last six road fixtures (D2 L3).
  • Austin FC boast a perfect record this year of six wins when facing teams from the Eastern Conference. This includes 5-0 and 5-1 demolitions of FC Cincinnati and Inter Miami here at Monday’s venue, Q2 Stadium.


NYRB are W2 D1 L2 in their last five but aren’t in the best of form away from home, with a 1-0 scoreline versus a Sporting KC currently bottom of the Western standings their sole win in their last six attempts on the road (D2 L3). In these games, Red Bulls failed to net more than once in any game and only managed three in total. So it makes sense to side with Austin, who are W5 D3 L1 as hosts in 2022 and score readily.
