Why you should support the Red Bulls

NYRB was in a bit of a rut, but it had no problem with its rival. He is aiming for a fourth consecutive victory in the Hudson River Derby. As well as winning the US Open Cup, he won the last two league encounters 1-0 and played a 1-1 draw in the other. Those three MLS meetings happened within a month last fall. Lewis Morgan was key to NYRB’s attack, posting nine league goals, and opened the scoring early in the second half to win the Open Cup last month.

Luquinhas also joined the table in that game, and he has five league goals this season, while seven others have scored at least once. The Red Bulls have allowed 21 goals in 19 appearances and have the fifth-most shots in MLS, averaging 13.4 per game. Both teams had nine in the last game, but the Red Bulls put up five to three for NYCFC. They outscored the Boys in Blue 27-20 in both 1-0 wins last year, despite over 60 per cent possession in both.

Why You Should Support NYCFC

The Boys in Blue lead the East with 38 goals and have allowed just 21 in 20 appearances. Valentine Castellanos leads MLS with 12 goals, Magno Tillers and Heber both have five, and Magno also has five assists. NYCFC are in control of their games, ranking second in MLS with 58.8% possession while the Red Bulls are third from bottom with just 44.4. This has been evident in the last three meetings, with NYCFC holding the ball 66, 65 and 63 percent.

NYCFC haven’t been great on the road, going 3-2-3 with a plus-1 goal differential, but the Red Bulls have taken just 13 points from their nine at home. NYRB have also been knocked off the scoresheet in three of their last eight games, while the Boys in Blue have scored in 10 consecutive games. Sean Johnson leads MLS with nine clean sheets, and NYCFC has allowed third-fewest shots in the league (201). He allowed four (one on target), in a 1-0 win over FC Dallas Wednesday.
