New York Red Bulls v New England Revolution- Sunday 19:30, Sky Sports 3
The Red Bulls welcome New England to the Red Bull Arena after they drew 2-2 with D.C. United in their last game. They seemed to be coasting at 2-0 up midway through the second half, only to be pegged back by two quick-fire United goals. Unfortunately for Red Bulls fans, it seems to be an all too familiar story as their side have only gone on to win two of the last eight games they’ve taken the lead in.
Their opponents are on a poor run having lost four of their last five whilst scoring just twice. New England’s away record is particularly poor with four losses in their last six trips away from Massachusetts. These struggles on the road are largely due to their poor defence, which has conceded 29 goals, more than anyone else on the road in the division.
Unfortunately for the men from Foxborough they are facing one of the stronger forward lines in the league, as the Red Bulls have scored 26 goals at home so far. Their attack has been led by Bradley Wright-Phillips, with the former Southampton man netting 15 goals already, including six in his last five, so we’re backing him to be the first goalscorer in this one.
