New York Red Bulls
The Red Bulls enter this Wednesday’s contest with a 5-2-5 record that ranks them 6th overall in the Eastern Conference. At the present time, the Philadelphia Union lead the East with a total of 24 points on the season. Since New York has ranked up 17 so far this season, they’re currently 7 points behind Philly. With this in mind, it’s safe to say New York are right in the mix of things. Furthermore, the club is just one point away from the 5th seeded New York City FC. So it’s clear that New York can jump up the conference ladder with a win this Wednesday.
However, since New York is 2-4-3 in their last 9 against Vancouver, there’s no telling how this Wednesday’s contest will turn out. Albeit, it’s clear that New York has been playing much better than Vancouver this season. After all, they have a +3 goal differential on the season while Vancouver is sitting at -4.
Players to Watch: Daniel Royer (10 GP, 2 G, 4 A), Alex Muyl (9 GP, 2 G, 0 A), and Cristian Casseres Jr. (5 GP, 2 G, 1 A).
The Whitecaps enter this Wednesday’s contest sporting a 3-4-6 record that ranks them 9th in the Western Conference. After posting that mediocre record, Vancouver is sitting on 13 points on the season. With LAFC leading the West thanks to their 31 points, it’s clear that the Whitecaps have already fallen very far behind. Nevertheless, Vancouver can certainly climb the rankings if they were to put together a lengthy win streak. But have we seen anything out of Vancouver this season to suggest that this is a possibility? All things considered, not really. Moreover, there’s no real reason to take Vancouver in this Wednesday’s contest.
Players to Watch: Fredy Montero (12 GP, 3 G, 1 A), Doneil Henry (13 GP, 2 G, 1 A), and In-Beom Hwang (13 GP, 1 G, 1 A).
