New York Red Bulls vs Minnesota United Match Preview
New York Red Bulls have suffered a largely disappointing opening month of the 2019 MLS season but should start getting back on track when they host Minnesota United.
The team from the Big Apple have won only one of their four matches so far and lost their latest two fixtures 1-0 at home to Orlando City and away to Chicago Fire.
But they will expect nothing less than three points against a Minnesota side who are playing the last of five consecutive away games at the start of this campaign before their new $250million stadium opens when they host New York City next weekend.
Minnesota, in their third year of MLS, began very brightly this term with back-to-back victories against Vancouver Whitecaps and San Jose Earthquakes, but have since reverted to last season’s poor away form by losing to LA Galaxy and New England Revolution, albeit narrowly.
Adrian Heath’s side are not expected to be challenging for the overall title this year whereas the Red Bulls are, and the greater quality of the New Yorkers is backed to tell comfortably.
