New England Revolution vs New York Red Bulls Predictions and Picks

Our Pick
New England are the understandable favorites here. They have not only earned just one single loss in six games so far in 2021 but have also been able to remain undefeated against elite MLS teams like the Philadelphia Union and Columbus Crew.

Looking over at their opponents, the Red Bulls, they just so happen to have lost to Philadelphia 1-0 last weekend. Granted, they haven’t been the worst team so far in the early stages of the season, but that said, the Red Bulls’ defeat was also their third in their last five. There are too many question marks over New York at the moment.

There’s a common and obvious theme when looking at the results from the Red Bulls so far in 2021. When facing less intimidating opponents, they seem to get the job done.

Up against Toronto FC and the Chicago Fire (who are sitting near the bottom of the league table), they’ve been impressive with 2-0 wins against each side in early May.

But what about the more dominant clubs in MLS?

Therein lies the problem for the Red Bulls. When tasked with challenging more formidable opponents, so far in 2021, they’ve ended up with losses.

With defeats by Sporting Kansas City, the LA Galaxy, and most recently, Philadelphia, it’s quite clear that the Red Bulls need much to improve before truly fighting for a top spot.

And unfortunately for them, they’ll now have to battle against another imposing team that have been carried by a star that looks like an early candidate for this season’s MVP title.

Carles Gil Is Ready For Another Strong Reason For New England

A couple of years back, Carles Gil was a godsend for the Revolution.

After immediately scoring in his first-ever New England match, the Spaniard quickly went on to become the 2019 MLS Newcomer of the Year and a member of the MLS Best XI.

Then, an injury held back his hopes for the 2020 season. Never truly back to his usual form, Gil was only able to make 10 appearances last year.

2021 has been a different story. As a key playmaker that has connected well with New England’s attack, it isn’t too difficult to make the case that he has arguably been the best MLS player of the first few weeks.

Gil seems to be improving with each match, and along with his goal and two assists since mid-April, things seem to be trending upward at an incredible rate for the Revolution midfielder.

Editor’s Picks

Red Bulls Will Be Without Their Top Defender

Following last week’s loss to Philadelphia, even more bad news emerged for Red Bulls fans when it was reported that defender Aaron Long had suffered a season-ending injury.

The 2018 MLS Defender of the Year will be greatly missed in New York’s backline, and keeping in mind that he’s also racked up 100+ appearances for the club, there will be an immense amount of experience that will be absent.

Even with Long in defense, the Red Bulls still gave up four goals in just two of their away games…

New England’s Gustavo Bou Has Looked Confident Up Top

There’s much more to the Revolution than just Gil.

Adam Buska has a couple of goals to his name, right-back Brandon Bye has been threatening with his runs up the flanks, and as for the striker, Gustavo Bou has been an incredible leader.

And despite his lack of goals, he more than makes up for it with his well-rounded abilities that link up well with the midfield and help win the ball back.

Bou has the skillset to score from distance or hit a powerful shot, but in recent weeks, he has once again highlighted his tenacity for being a team player and doing plenty of dirty work.
