New York Red Bulls Playing Fantastic Soccer at Home
The fact that the New York Red Bulls have collected only 10 points at home this season could make you think they’re not too dangerous when playing on their turf. However, the opposite is the truth. These guys are without a loss in seven home matches in the MLS and US Open Cup.
Further, they won each of their previous four matches played in New York. The most recent of those saw them beat their local rivals, New York City FC 3-0 in the cup.
They also have a great record against Atlanta United, winning three of the five games they’ve played in New York so far. Actually, the Red Bulls have lost just one game to Atlanta. It happened in 2018 when they lost 3-0 in Georgia.
Atlanta United Need to Improve on the Road
According to Transfermarkt, Atlanta United has the most valuable squad of all the teams in the MLS. Knowing this, it’s surprising that this team is sitting in the #10 position in the Eastern Conference. The reason behind this is that they’ve been disappointing in away matches.
Atlanta United are 1-1-5 on the road this season with five losses in their previous seven away matches in the MLS. The most recent of those saw them lose to Toronto FC, which is one of the worst teams in the league this season.
New York Red Bulls vs Atlanta United Prediction
The Red Bulls have a wonderful chance to add another three points to their tally. They are in fantastic shape at the moment, playing against one of the worst away teams in the MLS. That said, anything but a home win on Thursday would be a major surprise.
