Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365

Two sides who find themselves in an almost identical position, New York RB will travel to BMO field in the early hours of Thursday.

Starting with the hosts, picking up a 2-0 win away at Montreal last weekend, there is no doubt that Head Coach Greg Vanney will be desperate for his side to build off of that result in midweek. Now holding just a one-point buffer over losing the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference, fans around BMO field will know that the Reds will need to improve on their recent performances in Ontario if they’re to secure a top seven finish. Aside from a 3-2 win at home to defending MLS champions Atlanta, Toronto have not recorded another victory in front of their own supporters since the 20th of April. It is also worth noting that Thursday’s hosts have recorded just one clean sheet at BMO field since the end of March.

As for the visitors, coming off the back of a controversial 2-1 win in last weekend’s Hudson River derby, the Red Bulls still have an outside chance of clinching the Eastern Conference outright this year. Chasing down a five-point buffer to league leaders Philadelphia, Head Coach Chris Armas will know that his side must improve on their continued issues outside of New Jersey if they’re to pull off a remarkable play-off push. Playing out a 3-3 draw against Atlanta in their last appearance on the road, New York have not recorded an away victory since the end of May and have conceded 10 goals in their last three matches on the road.
