Philadelphia Union vs. New York Red Bulls – Prediction H2H (20.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Philadelphia Union are looking to reach their first conference semi-finals since 2011. A 3-2 win against New York Red Bulls (NYRB) in June was one of five victories enjoyed in their last eight regular-season home games. So too was it one of three, in this MLS season alone, in which they won at home after conceding the opening goal of the game (W3, L3). A dominant second-half goal difference of +16 at home has helped them win 62.50% of their regular season games as a home favourite. However, the home side on the day has won just two of the last six MLS clashes (W2, D2, L2).

Visitors NYRB were one of ten franchises to collect points from at least half of their matches as an away outsider (W4, D3, L7). That said, their regular-season form fizzled out, and their ten points (with a goal-difference of -3) collected in their last eight games was the seventh-worst haul in the league. NYRB will need to start sharply, as they failed to win a single MLS road game (D2, L7) when conceding the opening goal. Potentially in relation to that, both teams have scored in just one of the last eight MLS H2H meetings, with five of those eight producing a 0-0 half-time scoreline.
