New York Red Bulls Preview – Will the Red Bulls return to winning ways on home soil?

New York Red Bulls are sitting pretty in fourth spot in the Eastern Conference table right now. Gerhard Struber’s boys have picked up 36 points from 22 games, winning ten, drawing six and losing six. They are nine points away from leaders Philadelphia Union, however.

Metro head into this home match in good form, winning three of the last five. Their only defeat during that run was a disappointing one, as they lost the Hudson River Derby to rivals New York City. Still, they bounced back with a 4-3 win at Austin last time out.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Before the derby defeat, New York Red Bulls were unbeaten in six on home turf, winning three and drawing three. Can they get back to winning ways at the Red Bull Arena in midweek?

Colorado Rapids Preview – Another damaging defeat for Fraser’s troops?

Colorado Rapids have had a pretty miserable 2022 season up until now. They won the Western Conference and finished second in the overall table last year, but Robin Fraser’s side have looked a completely different team in 2022.

The Rapids languish down in 12th spot in the Western division, racking up just 24 points. The Denver outfit have won six, drawn six and lost nine of 21 league fixtures.
