Columbus Crew vs New York Red Bulls Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 9th June 2018
Columbus Crew vs New York Red Bulls – MLS: On a weekend where the 4 teams at the top
of the standings of the Eastern Conference face each other
We can be sure that there will be a lot of changes on the composition of that quarter.
When Columbus and Red Bulls take the pitch, the top two places will already have finished their encounter, opening up then the Crew’s perspectives of climbing some positions on the league table.
For New York’s men, this is a match where they can shorten some distance to the top 2.
Columbus Crew is going through a less positive period of the season, after having conceded draws on the last 2 matches played in the MLS.
Still, those were draws against very strong teams, like the Sporting Kansas City,
one of the more solid teams of the Western Conference, and Toronto FC, that despite a very humble position on the league table, maintain all the characteristics that have made them champions in 2017.
Looking at the US Open Cup as an opportunity to change the course of things, the Crew ended up eliminated by Chicago Fire on penalties, with 11 players having to take shots.
At the end, it was their goalkeeper Logan Ketterer that missed the decisive penalty.
The New York Red Bulls have also dropped points on the last 2 rounds of the Major League Soccer, which has prevented them from reaching this encounter closer to the Crew on the league table.
A draw at home against the Philadelphia Union had a bitter taste, but it probably was even worse to lose on the trip to the New England Revolutions, that has made them catch the Red Bulls on the league table.
Luckily for Jesse Marsch’s team, the US Open Cup offered a great opportunity of leaving a very positive impression on the season, since they battered their rivals New York City by 4-0.
Columbus Crew vs New York Red Bulls – Betting Tip and Prediction:
These are, therefore, two top teams looking to return to victories in the MLS, with the home side having more responsibilities, but with the Red Bulls having more than enough quality to snatch points in Ohio.
