Orlando vs New York Red Bulls Match Preview
Orlando City host New York Red Bulls for their MLS clash in a good mood and on the back of a four-match unbeaten streak, where they bagged five points and edged past New York City (on penalties after a 1-1 draw) in US Open Cup. They’ll now want to build on the positives and we feel there are many.
Lions have beaten Columbus Crew (1-0) in another narrow clash at Exploria Stadium and built on the success with draws at Philadelphia Union (2-2) and Portland Timbers (1-1), keeping up their solid goalscoring tally despite travelling on two tough trips for them.
New York Red Bulls have, on the other hand, seen a 3-1 loss at Toronto and let up in the chase for the top spot on Eastern Conference table, where they now sit five points behind Philadelphia Union with an extra game to their name. They’ve seen troubles on the road beforehand too and this could be worrying ahead of the trip to Exploria Stadium.
Red Bulls have thus bagged just one point on four trips since early June, regularly conceding numbers of goals and only holding Atlanta United to a 3-3 draw with a last-gasp goal from Bradley Wright-Phillips. Chris Armas and his men just struggled to cope defensively and this could mean trouble now.
We will now back Orlando to capitalize on that and bag all three points in a Home win priced at 59/50 with Unibet – which does feel like great value seeing their recent records and despite some very narrow clashes seen along the way.
We should be in for goals and backing such a scoreline, we’ll go for Lions to outgun the rivals in an exciting game of football. We’re thus also going for Over 2.5 Goals FT, which does seem a solid approach by itself at 13/20 with bet365 – especially for those keeping faith we’ll see a winner on the day.
