Our prediction for this MLS match:
Red Bull Arena will host Thursday’s football match between New York Red Bulls and DC United. The Metros continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and you should know that they are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground. You should bear in mind, though, that defender Tim Parker is sidelined through suspension after he was sent off in a 1-1 draw with New England Revolution.
DC United, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to the likes of New England and Philadelphia Union, with the team dropping to the 11th place in Eastern Conference. The capital club obviously struggle at the back, and given New York Red Bulls’ fine home record, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. Paul Arriola is out of contention with a knee injury for the away team.
