Market: New York Red Bulls double chance

Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a real purple patch, New York Red Bulls will make the trip to Audi Field in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Starting with the hosts, putting in a woeful display over the weekend, DC United find themselves enduring what has been a hugely worrying run of form. Completely blown away on their travels and hit with a dreadful 6-0 drumming away at New York City FC, Hernán Losada’s men have come tumbling back out of the Final Series spots. Knowing that they could once again face a stern test on home soil this week, DC have collected just a single point from any of their last four MLS contests. With that run highlighted by defeats at the hands of New England and Orlando, Thursday’s hosts have gained a reputation for their issues at the back. Coming off the back of that 6-0 hammering last time out, it should also be noted that Losada’s side shipped three goals when they welcomed New England to Audi Field for their last home fixture.

As for the visitors, while DC United might find themselves in the midst of a recent struggle, New York Red Bulls are enjoying what has been a stunning purple patch. With the mood in their camp at a red-hot high, the Whites have skyrocketed their way into the Final Series spots and they will be looking to lay down another marker in midweek. Putting in another eye-catching display over the weekend as they landed a 2-1 win away at Columbus, Head Coach Gerhard Struber has seen his side win each of their last four MLS contests. With that run highlighted by a deserved 1-0 victory against bitter rivals NYCFC earlier in the month, the former Barnsley boss has also seen his side enjoy an eight-match unbeaten run. Playing their best football of the season, an away double chance appears at attractive odds on Thursday.
