The New York Red Bulls take on Orlando City in MLS action at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday evening.
The Red Bulls have played just two league games this season and picked up four points, with their last game being a 4-1 win at home to San Jose Earthquakes last weekend.
In between their two MLS matches to date, the NY Red Bulls suffered two defeats to Mexico’s Santos in the CONCACAF Champions League quarter-finals (losing 6-2 on aggregate).
It’s been a tough start to the season for Orlando City, with just two points from their opening three matches. Last weekend they went down to a 3-1 loss at home to Montreal Impact. They are not without quality on their roster though, with Portuguese veteran winger Nani being their marquee signing.
The majority of the MLS predictions in this game will side with the Red Bulls and, particularly with home advantage, they do look a class above Orlando City and should certainly be expected to win this.
