New York Red Bulls are coming off a 1-1 draw in the visit to Columbus Crew last Saturday, second for Jesse Marsch's men in the last three rounds after a goalless draw at Red Bull Arena against Philadelphia Union on May 26, with one defeat in this period (a 1-2 loss at Gillette Stadium on May 2).
However, there is something that should be taken into account here: two of those three games were on the road, while the hosts rarely make mistakes at Red Bull Arena, where they've recorded seven victories in ten competitive games in 2018, as each of those seven encounters has been won by two or even more goals difference (7-2-1 24/4).Michael Murillo (d / 7+1), Kyle Duncan (d / 4+0), Fidel Escobar (d / 2+0), Vincent Bezecourt (m / 9+0) and Alejandro Romero (m / 9+1) will miss this home match against Seattle Sounders, but Duncan is unavailable since late March, while Bezecourt isn't a regular starter.
In the matter of fact, the guests also have problems with missing players, as Seattle Sounders will travel to New York without Roman Torres (d / 5+0), Gustav Svensson (m / 9+1) and Handwalla Bwana (f / 8+1).
Seattle Sounders ended a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 home victory over DC United last Saturday.DC United took the lead through Darren Mattocks in the 53rd minute, but Brian Schmetzer's men won three points after two goals from Nicolas Lodeiro in the 57th and Magnus Eikrem in the 83rd minute of that game.On the other hand, it doesn't change the fact that the guests have struggled since the beginning of the new campaign, especially on the road, where they've suffered four defeats in six league games (1-1-4 4/10) and were eliminated by a mediocre team like Sacramento Republic (USL) in the fourth round of the US Open Cup on June 6 (1-2 a.e.t.).
I think that New York Red Bulls will manage to win three points from this match.
