Our prediction for this MLS match:
New York Red Bulls welcome San Jose Earthquakes to their Bull Arena in what is expected to be an interesting MLS game. The Red Bulls have yet to find their best form in the 2023 season, but Sunday’s clash could be the turning point for Gerhard Struber’s troops. Both Lewis Morgan and Serge Ngoma are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Earthquakes, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Houston Dynamo. San Jose, though, produce much better showings at home than on the travels, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on draw. All Daniel, Carlos Gruezo, Niko Tsakiris, and Nathan Cardoso remain on the sidelines with injuries, while Jamiro Monteiro faces race against the clock to be fit for Sunday’s encounter.
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.
