New York Red Bulls
Doubtful: Aurelien Collin (leg), Kai Wagner (unknown)
MAIN PREDICTION: DRAW
The New York Red Bulls were blanked 1-0 at home by DC United despite outshooting the visitors 17-5. They allowed the game-winner just seconds before the final whistle and now have just one win in the last six league outings with four losses and a draw. They remain at 11 points and mid-table in the East. The Red Bulls also remain at home this week where they have two wins and a loss this season.
Philadelphia came back to earth after two straight wins and a draw as they were also blanked 1-0 on their visit to Columbus. They gave up the winner in the 55th minute and simply didn't do enough to find an equalizer after scoring four times against DC United in their previous outing. The Union were left in the top half of the East after the defeat with 15 points but allowed Columbus to pull five points ahead of them. They remain on the road this week where they record one win, three draws and two defeats in the league, including two matches played at neutral ground.
The Red Bulls are having trouble scoring but are at home and I think they'll do enough to earn a draw against a side that has yet to win away.
HEAD TO HEAD
The Union won 1-0 in the league at home last month as well as 4-3 after extra time in last year's playoffs. Each club won at home in the league last season.
