New York Red Bulls to Win

Since the start of the 2021 campaign, the Reds have been busy with MLS and Champions League engagements. The additional fixtures have not been kind to them, and they have struggled to give a good account of themselves. Toronto are winless in four matches, allowing Red Bulls a good opportunity to build on their 2-0 win over Chicago Fire.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The Red Bulls enter the fixture well-rested. It will be their fourth match of the campaign, compared to the Canadians’ sixth. The hosts have shown a tendency to score and even managed to claim their first clean sheet of the campaign. They average 3.3 goals per match, which pales in comparison to Toronto’s 5. Expect goals on either side of the pitch as the goalkeepers get plenty of action.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Toronto cannot be counted out even with the travelling schedule having its impact. They have scored in five of their six of their outings. Their only shutout came against Cruz Azul on the road in the narrow 1-0 defeat. The Reds are away for this fixture and take on New York Red Bulls, who kept a clean sheet in their most recent outing. With New York conceding five goals in their three outings, expect Toronto to get opportunities to trouble the scorers.

New York Red Bulls vs Toronto Fixture Preview

New York Red Bulls

Gerhard Struber has a tough task on his hands. After impressing in Germany, he had a short stint in England and might be heading out if New York Red Bulls cannot maintain steady performances. The Red Bulls got their early season jitters out of the way with a win over Chicago Fire and will be looking to have a repeat performance against Toronto. One player to look out for in the New York squad is Caden Clark. The 17-year-old has scored twice and is emerging as a serious talent in the MLS.

Toronto FC

Chris Armas has the highest-paid squad in the MLS. The players deserved their salaries after taking the franchise to a second-place finish in the Eastern Conference and MLS overall. One cannot make the same comment for their performances this season as they struggle to manage MLS and Champions League workload. Armas has to ensure that their performances pick up as they make the considerably short trip to New York. The return of Luke Singh to the starting lineup will be welcomed but the onus remains on the forward line to start hitting the back of the net regularly.
