Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on Red Bull Arena when New York Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union go head to head on Friday morning. New York Red Bulls did well to beat Orlando City in their last league match, with the team climbing to seventh position in the standings. The Metros are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as slim favourites to win the midweek fixture.
The U’s, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss at Nashville, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. All Diarra, Gutman, Long, and Royer are likely to miss the game with injuries for the home team, while Ilson, de Vries, and Fontana are out of contention for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Daniel Royer):
Daniel Royer is an Austrian winger who was born in Schladming on May 22, 1990. After starting his youth career at local club Schladming, Royer moved to Sturm Graz in 2004. Five years later the 175-cm-tall footballer began his senior career at Pashing and after scoring 6 goals in 25 appearances for the club, he moved to Ried.
Daniel Royer played for the likes of Hannover, Koln, Austria Wien and Midtjylland as well before joining New York Red Bulls in 2016. In the 2017 MLS season the Austria international established himself as a first-team regular, scoring no less than 12 goals in the process.
Speaking of his international career, Royer made his Austria debut on June 3, 2011, replacing Martin Harnik in the EURO 2012 qualifier against Germany. Daniel Royer’s main position is left winger, but is used as a right winger as well. It has to be noted that the Austria international doesn’t have a preferred foot.
