New York Red Bulls vs Seattle Sounders FC Preview

New York Red Bulls vs Seattle Sounders FC

Competition – MLS

Stadium – Red Bull Arena

Date: 14th June 2018

Kick-off time – 01:00 GMT

This week will be the second consecutive week that the New York Red Bulls would have to deal with a run of games stretched across two competitions, beginning with this match.

They do have a good record in this fixture as they have won 4 of their last four meetings with the Sounders.

After coming off an emotional derby against NYCFC with a 4-0 win in the US Open Cup last Wednesday, the Red Bulls claimed a commendable 1-1 draw against the Colombus Crew last weekend – that point came courtesy of some heroic goalkeeping from Luis Robles and they will now be looking to get back to winning now that they are back home.

Seattle Sounders come into this game 11 points off the playoff spots.

They however, come in high spirits after a spirited comeback win against DC United in their last outing.

The Sounders trailed DC in the first half of that game, and that would have been a fourth loss in as many games for them.

However, they rallied to a 2-1 win in the second half and they will now look to get another win here to put a run of wins together.

The Red Bulls have won three, lost one and drew two of their last six home meetings against Seattle Sounders.
