Just because the Copa America has finished, that doesn’t mean the soccer has! The MLS never went away and we’re getting to the crunch point in the season. This intense rivalry will see the tackles flying and the goals (hopefully) flowing in what should be an exciting match-up. Join us for New York City Vs. New York Red Bulls right here by clicking down for the live stream!
Now, Patrick Vieira‘s New York City don’t need reminding of the last time these two teams met earlier in the season. City were on the end of a 7-0 drubbing to the Red Bull, so they will be all out for revenge when the two teams meet at Yankee Stadium.
Incredibly, despite that thrashing, City are a point above the Red Bulls in the Eastern Conference and sit in second place in the division. The Red Bull won’t want to lose ground on their noisy neighbors, so they will be all out to repeat their historic win (it was the joint highest the MLS has ever known!)
City will be relying on their talisman, Spanish striker David Villa for the goals. He has 11 this season, and has been in blistering form as he’s the leading scorer in the league. Tommy McNamara also has 5 assists to his name, so he will be the playmaker charged with finding that killer pass for David.
It’s going to be a end-to-end game, with plenty of goals surely on offer. Maybe it’s time for City to turn the tables on the Red Bulls and record their first ever win against them. We’ll soon see!
