New York Red Bulls and the New England Revolution are both in the playoffs. However, neither of these Eastern Conference sides is confident about recent performance. New York Red Bulls currently sit in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference standings while New England Revolution remain in 7th.
New York Red Bulls currently have the greater head-to-head record with 13 wins, four draws and 10 losses. Because of their home advantage, position at the table and this they will be the favourites going into the match.
The match between the two sides was won 1-0 by the New York Red Bulls in April. It was an intense game that saw both teams receive red cards. Frankie Amaya picked up his second yellow in the 73rd minute but the New York Red Bulls keep fighting and got the vital goal after one minute into added time.
Adam Buksa, who was also sent to New England Revolution, was sent away a few seconds later. New York Red Bulls were just about the better side with 12 shots compared to New England Revolution’s 10 shots. The net was what they finally found, and that is the only thing that matters in the end.
New York Red Bulls couldn’t stop Philadelphia Union
Nobody will take the defeat against the New York Bulls who were beaten by the Philadelphia Union on Saturday. The fact that only two goals were scored by the New York Red Bulls might be something viewers are impressed with.
New York Red Bulls did well in the first-half, keeping it tight with the scores at 0-0 but Mikkel Uhre’s goal in the 54th minute opened things up before Daniel Gazdag finished the game with a strike in the 74th minute.
Dru Yearwood was sent off right before the final whistle, leaving New York Red Bulls completely deflated. The Red Bulls will need to forget about the defeat and get back on track against New England Revolution.
Lewis Morgan Can’t Carry The Attack On His Own
Lewis Morgan has had to take up the attacking and creative burden this season for the Red Bulls with 13 goals and four assists. Patrick Kymala is next to Morgan, with only five goals and five assists. Cristian Casseres Jr. has more. These are not enough goals to allow teams to move forward. Morgan is not an obvious forward. This shows how much they require more options moving forward.
New York Red Bulls Must Add To Their Game In Possession
The New York Red Bulls’ pressing game leads to transition opportunities, but has an obvious weakness. The New York Red Bulls have no plans b if they decide to play over the problem. All major leagues have embraced pressing, but it is not the best way to go. Teams must evolve and become more diverse in order to open up defenses by other methods.
The easiest way to do this is to have a playmaker, but you can also use coaching automations at the training grounds. The New York Red Bulls seem to only have one play they can rely on at this point. If they are to continue being a threat, this won’t suffice. The players are also physically exhausted by the pressure of the game.
New England Revolution Win Big Over New York City FC New England Revolution had a poor run before the match with New York City FC, but they were able to win 3-0 over their defending champions.
It’s obvious that New York City FC is unrecognizable without Valentin Castellanos, but New England Revolution will not care as they have had to replace some of their top players. New England Revolution’s win was a result of two goals in the first half by Jonathan Bell and Noel Buck.
Bou hasn’t fully recovered
New England Revolution’s chances of reaching the playoffs rest on Gustavo Bou. He is currently recovering from an injury but will need to be able to perform at his best. Despite missing several months because of injury, the Argentine is currently the top scorer on the team with seven goals. It’s too soon to predict that he will be the main factor in this match, however the victory on Saturday and his return to New England Revolution will provide a great deal of optimism for the remaining regular season games.
The Revs Can’t Drop All Three points
Although they haven’t had some of their most important players in recent seasons, the New England Revolution are still in 7th position. The expected goal differential, which is expected goals minus expected goals against, of the Revs is -5. Their numbers don’t look great. At least nine other teams are in the conference that have better underlying numbers. The only thing they need to do is let go of the expectations and tactics from the last season. They must learn how to work for points and not be distracted by them.
Injuries and Suspensions
Goalkeeper Jakob Jackson was out in August with a cruciate injury. No date is expected for his return.
