New York Red Bulls vs Philadelphia Union Predictions & Picks

New York Red Bulls vs Philadelphia Union Predictions


Key Stat: Philadelphia Union to continue their fine run of form

Tip Reasoning

  • Philadelphia Union has won four of their last five matches, both home and away
  • New York Red Bulls has lost three of their last five games at home
  • Philadelphia Union has conceded the least number of goals, 21, in the league this season


Philadelphia Union has been the team to beat this season. They come into this game from a 4-1 MLS win to beat Atlanta United in their last outing. Philadelphia Union has well been on an amazing run of form, with four wins in their last five games. Philadelphia Union remains first in the Eastern Conference with 57 points in 29 games played so far this season. They are only behind fellow Conference leaders, the Los Angeles FC, in points amassed per game. For New York Red Bulls, they head into this game coming off a 1-0 win against Montreal Impact. Their win against Montreal Impact made it four games unbeaten, home and away, for the New York Red Bulls.

Before the New York Red Bulls’ two-game unbeaten streak, they had lost three straight games at home. They seem to be struggling at home irrespective of their improved form, and I’d back the Philadelphia Union to come out as victors in this matchup. However, New York RB will be looking to keep up the momentum today against Philadelphia Union. Philadelphia is still the clear favourite in this matchup as they are unbeaten in eight straight matches against the Red Bulls, including playoffs. The eight-match winless run is New York’s longest active run against any opponent, as it has not gone more than two straight games without a win against any other MLS team.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Philadelphia Union has been busy in the goal-scoring department

  • Philadelphia Union has scored 16 goals in their last three matches
  • New York Red Bulls have failed to score in 2 of the last 5 games. 
  • Just 2 of the last 5 games for Philadelphia Union have ended with both teams scoring

Up to 5 of the previous 6 Philadelphia Union games have scored three or more goals. The average amount of goals scored during that stretch was 4.5 per game, with Philadelphia Union scoring an average of 3.5. It will be up to us to determine whether or not that pattern will carry over into this game. The New York Red Bulls’ defence has been having a terrific time, according to their most recent results. The New York Red Bulls have been tough at the back, as evidenced by the fact that 4 goals have found their way into the net during their last six games. Looking at Philadelphia, with the best defence in the league and New York Red Bull recently putting up impressive defensive displays, it looks more certain we see less than three goals scored in this matchup.
