Our prediction for this MLS match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over San Jose Earthquakes (5-2) and Portland Timbers (3-1), Minnesota United will be looking to extend their winning run to three games when they host New York Red Bulls at their Allianz Field. Minnesota United have been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season, and, no doubt, yet another lively contest is on the horizon.
January signing Luis Antonio Amarilla has already started paying off, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. New York Red Bulls, on the other hand, have been producing fine performances at the start of the season as well. Following a 3-2 win over Cincinnati, the Red Bulls shared the spoils with Real Salt Lake in their last league match. Seeing that the visitors are likely to go for a win in the Allianz Field clash as well, there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.
This game is postponed.
Highlighted Player (Romain Métanire):
Born in Metz, France on March 28. 1990, Romain Metanire is a defender, who plays for Minnesota United in the Major League Soccer. Metanire started his senior career at Metz and after playing for the likes of Kortrijk and Reims, he moved to United States of America.
The 178-cm tall footballer made his debut for the Loons on March 3, 2019 in a 3-2 win over Vancouver Whitecaps in the opening match of the season. Despite being born in France, Romain Metanire represents Madagascar on the international stage. He made his debut for the national team in a 2-2 draw with Senegal in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. His preferred foot is right and his main position is right-back.
Romain Metanire helped Reims secure automatic promotion to the Ligue 1 in the 2017/2018 season. Reims clinched top position in the Ligue 2 in style, 15 points clear Nimes, but the following season Metanire made only five appearances in the French elite division.
Highlighted Team (New York Red Bulls):
New York Red Bulls is the first club from New York City to join Major League Soccer. In 2006 the club was sold to Red Bull GmbH and, as a result, they are nicknamed the Red Bulls. New York welcome their rivals at Red Bull Arena and the team’s home colors are white and red.
On the other hand, the Red Bulls wear dark blue shirts and yellow shorts on the road. In 2008 New York Red Bulls made it to the MLS Cup final, but they were not capable of matching Columbus Crew (1-3) in the Home Depot Center clash. A number of top-class footballers were part of the team in the past, but former Arsenal forward Thierry Henry is the synonym of the club.
Henry scored 51 goals in 122 league games for New York Red Bulls from 2010 to 2014 and it has to be noted that he scored his first MLS hat-trick in a 5-2 victory over Montreal Impact on March 31, 2012. The likes of Youri Djorkaeff, Lothar Matthaus, Roberto Donadoni, Rafael Marquez, Juninho and Tim Cahill played for the club in the past as well.
