The two New York City clubs will square off in one of the Eastern Conference’s most compelling matches as they try to maintain position one.
The Red Bulls, who have triumphed in more than half of their matches against other New York-based teams, stand out as the clear leaders in these clashes.
22 games were played, with a total of 13 victories—6 victories for New York City FC—and 3 ties.
Three Hudson River Derby victories in a row have gone to the Red Bulls, including one last month in the U.S. Open Cup that they won 3-0. As a result, NY Red Bulls is aiming to become the first team since the first four encounters between these two to win four straight derbies.
In 13 attempts, New York City FC has only succeeded in winning this match at Red Bull Arena once. They did, however, manage to win the regular title three times, but they never succeeded in the Cup competition, and last season they were ousted in the first round.
The Red Bulls are doing well in the current competition; after 20 games, they already have scored 33 points, placing them #3 in the Eastern Conference rankings.
Even though New York City FC is a considerably younger team—it was just founded in 2013—the Citizens have already won one significant MLS championship. Last season, it took place.
Nick Cushing’s squad has already won ten games, tied five times, and lost just four in 19 meetings. Due to their impressive performances, the squad is currently ranked second in the Eastern Conference and first in terms of points lost.
The fact that the New York Red Bulls and New York City are now among the leaders of the Eastern Conference speaks to their high caliber of play. Even in a head-to-head matchup, neither club loses very frequently, so you shouldn’t anticipate anyone to go without any points.
New York Red Bulls Vs New York City FC Betting Odds
One of the most seasoned American clubs is the 1994-founded New York Red Bulls. Despite having a long history, the Bulls have never won the MLS championship, only making it to the championship series once, in 2008.
Yes, the Citizens appear to be a little more reliable and skillful, but the Bulls’ home-field advantage equalizes the playing field. In light of this, we might as well Bet on a draw at 3.60 odds.
The teams have engaged in 19 face-offs within the MLS. There are 10 victories on the Bulls’ side, six victories for City, and three games that resulted in draws.
The goal differential also goes 35-22 in the Red Bulls’ favor. In their three meetings last season, the rivals drew once (1–1) and twice saw the New York Red Bulls’ players outperform their opponents (1-0 each).
The opponents in the Hudson River Derby will be meeting for the first time this year. The winner of Wednesday’s game will go to the semifinals of the U.S. Open Cup, the most prestigious award in American soccer, even though it will not have an impact on the MLS standings.
