Charlotte FC vs New York Red Bulls Prediction

Charlotte FC have faced the New York Red Bulls once before, which came a couple of weeks ago. The two sides met in the US Open Cup at the Red Bull Arena, and the game ended 3-1 in the New York side’s favor. Patryk Klimala scored the opening goal of the game for the Red Bulls early in the game. The forward had the ball in the back of the net inside the first 100 seconds, and it seemed like the game would be a one-sided affair.

Daniel Rios pulled one back six minutes later to put the doubts to rest, but the away side could not build on it. They had 63 percent possession in the game but managed to get just five shots at goal, of which only three were on target.

Expect a Repeat of the Last Result

New York Red Bulls had to wait until the second half to take the lead as they struggled to keep hold of the ball. Dylan Nealis got the much-needed goal right after the hour mark, and then Tom Barlow sealed the win in the 92nd minute of the game. Despite having just 37% of the ball. The Red Bulls managed to take 17 shots at goal, but only four were on target.

A repeat of the game is expected this weekend, as Charlotte will find it hard to get behind the Red Bull defense. The home side are not in their best form as well, with three losses in their last four matches in all competitions. Meanwhile, Red Bull have lost just once in their previous 11 games, and it was a shock loss to Inter Miami last month.

Charlotte FC Need to Make the Most of Their Possession

Charlotte’s debut season in Major League Soccer did not have the best of starts. They are slowly making it up the table now but have a long way to go before making a significant impact on the league.

Miguel Angel Ramirez’s men did not have a good pre-season either, as they lost twice – to Charleston Battery and Inter Miami – and drew to Columbus Crew.

In the opening game of the season, Charlotte were up against DC United and were unlucky to lose to the side from the capital. Michael Estrada scored a brace in the first half, and Ola Kamara sealed the win with a goal after the hour mark. The newcomers dominated possession, had more shots on target, and created better chances but could not score.

Charlotte’s History Books Begin With up and Down Results

LA Galaxy beat Charlotte in their first home game in MLS history. The away side needed a stunning goal from Efrain Alvarez to win the game 1-0.

Adam Armour created history in the third game of the season when he scored the first goal for Charlotte in MLS. It was an equalizer after Josef Martínez had handed Atalanta the lead, but Jake Mulraney stole all three points for the home side in the 96th minute and left Charlotte still looking for their first points.

They did not have to wait long as they defeated the New England Revolution in the next game week. Karol Świderski scored a brace, and Benjamin Bender added another as the newcomers won 3-1 at home.

They followed it up with another win thanks to another brace by Karol Świderski. They defeated FC Cincinnati 2-0 and were looking set to go on a good run.

The Bubble Bursts

Philadelphia Union ensured they brought Charlotte FC back down to earth and defeated them 2-0. Dániel Gazdag and Julián Carranza scored the goals in yet another game where the newcomers dominated but could not score.

Charlotte FC then went on an inconsistent run of form with two wins, two losses, and a draw in their next five matches. Things have not changed much in the last three games as they have lost twice and won once. They defeated Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1 but lost 2-0 to CF Montreal and 2-1 to Seattle Sounders last month.

Injuries and Suspensions

Chris Hegardt is a doubt, while Yordy Reyna, Pablo Sisniega, Adam Armour, and Vinicius Mello are ruled out.

New York Red Bulls Beed to Keep the Momentum Going

New York Red Bulls are on a good run right now, with just one loss in their last 11 matches in all competitions. They will be confident of getting another win this weekend when they face Charlotte FC. They started their season with wins over the San Jose Earthquakes and Toronto FC but lost to Minnesota United in their first home game of the season.

That was followed by a 1-1 draw with Columbus Crew and then a 1-0 win over New England Revolution. CF Montreal stunned the Bulls are home and handed them another defeat at the Red Bull Arena. Romell Quioto and Rudy Camacho scored the goals as they came from 1-0 down to win 2-1.

Quick Fixes to the Defensive Setup

The loss saw the Red Bulls fix their defense quickly but they could nto get the wins they needed. They were unable to pick up wins often and dropped points against FC Dallas, Portland Timbers, Philadelphia Union, and Chicago Fire. Orlando City SC and Chicago Fire (away game) were the only sides they defeated in the 5-match run, with the games at Red Bull Arena (vs FC Dallas) and Exploria Stadium (vs Orlando City SC) being the only time they kept a clean sheet.

In their last 11 matches, the only loss for the New York Red Bulls came against Inter Miami CF. The shock loss stunned everyone following MLS as the home side were in poor form while the away side was doing well. Ariel Lassiter scored the opening goal in the 29th minute, with Robert Taylor sealing the 2-0 win in the 88th minute.

Home Form Needs Serious Improvement

They have not been great at home, with just one win in their seven matches at the Red Bull Arena so far. They have lost just twice but look more comfortable playing away from home.

The lone win at home came in the previous game week when they faced DC United. Luquinhas scored twice, with Lewis Morgan adding another before Ola Kamaran pulled one back for the away side. Before the side from the capital could get another goal, Tony Alfaro scored an own goal and helped the Red Bulls seal a 4-1 win.

Injuries and Suspensions

Kevin O’Toole and Heber Araujo are doubtful, while Gabriel Pereira and Anton Tinnerholm are ruled out.
