New York Red Bulls vs DC United Prediction & Match Preview


NEW YORK RED BULLS will be aiming to maintain their solid home record as they host struggling DC United in an Eastern Conference MLS clash. The Red Bulls often do their best work at home and should have the upper hand over an out of sorts DC United.

New York Red Bulls are coming off a 3-0 victory over Toronto in their previous MLS fixture. Elias Manoel opened the scoring midway through the first half while Dennis Gjengaar and Cameron Harper added further goals after the break.

That result extends New York Red Bulls’ solid home form as they are now unbeaten in their last nine matches at Red Bull Arena. Sandro Schwarz’s men have picked up six wins in that run while also keeping five clean sheets.

DC United travel to Red Bull Arena off the back of a 4-1 home defeat to Houston Dynamo last time out in the MLS. They struck first through Christian Benteke but capitulated after the break and conceded four goals.

The result means DC United are still deep in the middle of a rough patch as they are winless in their last eight matches, suffering six defeats in that run. Troy Lesesne’s men have also struggled on their travels, losing four of their last five away matches.

The bookies have installed New York Red Bulls as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 4/9 by Betfred. An unlikely victory for DC United is valued at 9/2 while a draw is set at odds of 16/5.

New York Red Bulls have come out on top in recent matches with DC United and are unbeaten in the last seven meetings. They have picked up six wins in that run, including a 4-1 victory in the last fixture back in March, with Elias Manoel getting one of the goals.

Elias Manoel opened the scoring for the New York Red Bulls last time out and will be the one to watch on Sunday. The striker was also on target in the last meeting with DC United and is priced at 6/4 by Betfred to score anytime.

New York Red Bulls have also been solid at the back, keeping clean sheets in their last three home matches. Sean Nealis and Noah Eile remain the preferred central defensive pairing and can lead the hosts to another clean sheet at 11/8 with Betfred.

Emile Forsberg remains sidelined with injury and is ruled out for New York Red Bulls while Lewis Morgan could be back in the squad after Scotland crashed out of Euro 2024. Elias Manoel should retain his place in attack following his goal last time out.

DC United will be without top scorer Christian Benteke, who is suspended following a red card against Houston. Pedro Santos could be given a start in midfield after coming off the bench last time out.

New York Red Bulls: Meara, Tolkin, Eile, Nealis, Nealis, Carmona, Amaya, Edelman, Gjengaar, Vanzeir, Elias Manoel
DC United: Miller, Herrera, Bartlett, Tubes, Dajome, Peltola, Klich, Rodriguez, Pedro Santos, Ku-DiPietro, Murrell

New York Red Bulls won to nil in their last meeting with DC United and could be set for a repeat at 13/8 with Betfred. Having scored four in that clash, they could also be backed in the -1 handicap market at 11/8 with Betfred.

With another dominant performance expected on Sunday, New York Red Bulls could be backed to win both halves at 13/5 with Betfred.
