New York Red Bulls vs Orlando City

, KO: 00:30 Jun 2, 2024, Red Bull Arena
Orlando City

NEW YORK RED BULLS entertain Orlando City in their second home game in a row and aim to make it three wins out of four.

Sandro Schwarz's side were in action in midweek and were too good for Charlotte after a lengthy weather delay in a 3-1 win. And they have another game in New Jersey against the Florida outfit managed by Oscar Pareja.

The hosts are currently lying in fourth place and the visitors are in 11th.

The hosts have been in fine form at home in particular and are unbeaten in nine home matches in all competitions. It's the first time they have gone unbeaten in their opening six home games in the MLS for 12 years.

Orlando City had to settle for a point at Chicago after conceding a second half goal. It means they have won just two games out of their last eight matches.

How the bookies view it: Bulls bang on say bookies

New York Red Bulls are odds-on favourites here at 3/4. The visitors can be backed at 16/5 with the draw 27/10, all with bet365.

Recent head to heads: Orlando have the recent upper hand

The sides met in March and it ended in a 1-1 draw in Orlando. But that put a halt to a three-game winning steak from Orlando in this fixture including a double last season.

Players to watch: Morgan can be motivated by Euros snub

New York's top scorer is a name familiar with Scots, but not to Scotland boss Steve Clarke apparently as former Celtic and St Mirren star Lewis Morgan's nine goals this season were not deemed good enough to put him into contention for a place at the Euros. He is 13/8 to score anytime with bet365.

Colombian striker Luis Muriel got goals for fun in Italy with Atalanta, but he's only scored twice for Orlando and they came in the same game. He is 13/8 to score anytime with bet365.

Predicted line-ups:

Red Bulls will welcome back defender Sean Nealis after suspension, but Ronald Donkor, Peter Stroud and Roald Mitchell are all missing.
Orlando could be without Duncan McGuire, Michael Halliday and Tahir Reid-Brown,

New York Red Bulls: Coronel, Duncan, Reyes, Eile, Tolkin, Harper, Amaya, Edelman, Morgan, Vanzeir, Manoel.

Orlando City: Gallese; Thorhallsson, Brekalo, Schlegel; Lodeiro, Martins, Cartagena, Angulo, Torres, Muriel, Enrique.

Anything else catch the eye?

The hosts have turned their Red Bull Arena in Harrison into a real fortress and although the price is a tad skinny, should be backed to continue their impressive home form here against a struggling Orlando.

There seems to be a real contrast in styles here – goals seem a gimme at both ends where the Red Bulls are concerned but Orlando are more conservative.

For example, six of New York's seven wins this season have come with both teams scoring and there have been 27 goals in their last five games combined.

But Orlando have seen less than 2.5 goals in five of their last six games.

However, Red Bulls's entertaining style should prevail here and the 2/1 on another home win and both teams to score at 2/1 with bet365 is too tempting to pass up.
