Gerhard Struber’s exciting project with the New York Red Bulls has continued to pick up pace over the course of the year, with the youngest side in the 2022 MLS all but guaranteed a spot in the postseason playoffs now. Having leapfrogged Hudson Rival rivals New York City into 3rd place in the Eastern Conference, the question now is: how good could this Red Bulls team get? Check out SinkorSwimSports as we preview New York Red Bulls vs New England Revolution, with all the latest MLS 2022 predictions, tips and betting odds to follow!
NY Red Bulls vs New England Preview
The New York Red Bulls only qualified for the playoffs last season on the back of a stellar second half of the campaign but, even then, it looked like Gerhard Struber was starting to cook something in Harrison. The Red Bulls only lost two of their opening twelve games, and nine of their 13 wins so far this season have come on the road.
The team lost their last match 0-2 at home to an inspired-looking Philadelphia Union but had won three of their past four before then. Lewis Morgan has undoubtedly been the Red Bulls’ star player this season, scoring 13 goals from 26 appearances on the wing this season.
New England Revolution broke the Supporters’ Shield points record in 2021, but some key departures have made 2022 a much more inconsistent affair so far. Scott Caldwell, Tajon Buchanan, Matt Turner and Adam Buksa have all departed at various points across the 2022 schedule, contributing to the side sitting outside the playoff places, albeit only by one point.
The Revs have also only won three times since June 26, a run of thirteen games heading into this weekend. Their last fixture did at least yield a 3-0 win over reigning MLS Cup champions New York City.
