Tip Reasoning

  • The visitors have won less than 30% of their away games this season.
  • Philadelphia Union have won their last five home games, keeping a clean sheet in four of those.
  • The hosts have won five of the last six meetings with NYRB when playing at Subaru Park.

Home advantage could be key

Round one of the Eastern Conference gets underway as Philadelphia Union play host to the New York Red Bulls at Subaru Park. The hosts finished the regular season in second place and six points better off than their opponents, who secured their seventh-place finish by just a single point.

Philadelphia finished the regular season with a 1-1 draw away to New York City and that result meant that they finished the Easter Conference campaign by going unbeaten in four outings which ensured they would have a home tie for round one of the playoffs. It seems to be a common trend amongst teams in the MLS, but Philadelphia have been much stronger on home soil than they have on their travels, winning 65% of their games at Subaru Park in comparison with 18% of games they won on the road. Home advantage is key to progression, it would appear.

Red Bulls to be edged out once again

The Red Bulls also finished with a 1-1 draw as they played out a closely fought contest with Nashville. Gerhard Struber’s men had a tough start to the season but they got into their groove and are currently on a run of just one defeat in their last 12 outings. The Red Bulls were knocked out in round one of last season’s playoffs and they’ll hope that lightning indeed does not strike twice.
