    New York Red Bulls to pick up a win over Vancouver Whitecaps

    In the early hours of Thursday morning (GMT), New York Red Bulls host Vancouver Whitecaps at the Red Bull Arena in MLS.

    The Red Bulls are currently sixth-place in the Eastern Conference. A victory could see the men from the Big Apple move up to fourth place in the standings.

    After a poor start to their MLS campaign, Chris Armas’ side has now won four of their last five games in the American top-flight. Last time out, they recorded a 1-0 home victory over Atlanta United.

    Although New York Reds Bull’s recent league outings have not all been high-scoring, five of their last eight MLS matches have seen both teams score.

    The home sides recent league record has been inconsistent on their own patch. However, they have now won 12 of their last 15 MLS matches on home soil. They have also kept nine clean sheets from their last 14 outings on their own patch in the American top-flight.

    Vancouver Whitecaps heads into this clash on the back of a highly inconsistent start to their MLS campaign. In fact, the Canadian outfit has picked up just 13 points in as many MLS matches this season.

    A 1-1 draw against Sporting Kansas last time out means that the visitors have won just three of their 13 league games this season. One positive for Vancouver is that they have been hard to beat of late in MLS, losing just once in five league games.

    The Whitecaps recent MLS games have been low-scoring, with nine of their last ten league matches producing under 2.5 goals.

    The visitor's recent record on the road in MLS is not great, as although they have taken four points from their last two away games in the league, the Canadian team has won just once in seven matches on their travels in the American top-flight.

    Forebet predicts that the home side will record a victory in a high-scoring clash to move up the Eastern Conference standings.
