New York Red Bulls vs Orlando City: Predictions
Orlando City are in their seventh season as an MLS club and will be looking to build on last year’s performance, when they reached the play-offs for the first time, while also finishing runners-up in the MLS is Back Tournament. They have started the 2021 campaign in the best way possible, winning three and drawing three of their opening six matches to currently sit second in the Eastern Conference. Orlando City go into this game off the back of consecutive wins, beating DC United and Toronto.
While Orlando City are enjoying 2021, their hosts New York Red Bulls will be looking to use this game to kickstart their campaign. Gerhard Struber’s are 10th in the Eastern Conference and have won just two of their opening six games, losing four. Two of those defeats have come in their past two games, with New York Red Bulls losing to Philadelphia Union and New England Revolution, going down to 10 men on each occasion.
