In what could prove to be an extremely lively encounter in New Jersey, New England will make the trip to the Red Bull Arena in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Starting with the hosts, while the Red Bulls may have attempted to mount a late charge away at LAFC last weekend, New York could only slump to a 4-2 defeat and their continued struggles are becoming a growing concern for fans in New Jersey. Freefalling out of the title picture in the Eastern Conference and now hunting down an eight-point deficit they have also recorded just a pair of victories since the end of June. There is no doubt that Head Coach Chris Armas will be glad to make a return to the Red Bull Arena this weekend. Despite showing some glaring defensive issues in the second half of the campaign, they have now won four of their last five on home soil, scoring two or more goals in each of those victories.

As for the visitors, after snatching an 87th-minute equalizer away at Seattle in their dramatic 3-3 draw on the road last week, the mood in New England’s camp is certainly on the rise. Reclaiming their spot in the play-offs and tasting just defeat once in the MLS since the 9th of May, a huge part of their recent revival has been their form in the final third. Although Bruce Arena’s men do hold the worst defensive record in the Eastern play-off positions, they have bagged two or more goals in six of their last seven contests. In a matchup that could produce plenty of chances at both ends, we’re backing a lively encounter on Sunday.
