Our prediction for this MLS match:
New York Red Bulls will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over New England Revolution when they take on Cincinnati in a highly-anticipated MLS game. The Metros have been producing fine displays at home ground of late and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. Wikelman Carmona is pushing for a start after sealing the victory against the Revs, while all Dylan Nealis, Lewis Morgan, Steven Sserwadda, and Serge Ngoma remain in the recovery room.
Cincinnati, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Major League Soccer, but given their difficulties at the back, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Both Vazquez and Miazga are on international duty with USA, whilst Ian Murphy is banned for the match. The likes of Dominique Badji, Gerardo Valenzuela, and Brenner should miss out through injuries.
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.
