Portland also had a slow start in the season but the titleholders improved their result in the league, recording six-match undefeated run with 12 points gained. Such spurt allowed the team to climb up to 7th place in the West with 24 points after 18 matches. The team’s problems lay in their poor away record this season as they failed to win a single match on the road with five draws and four defeats recorded and 9-15 goal difference. The most recent away win was taken in the beginning of December last year, nine matches ago.
New York Red Bull have advantage in the head-to-heads between the teams. The hosts appear to be favorites of the upcoming match considering results of the opponents this season and have solid chances for sixth home win in a row.
Prediction for the match: New York to win.
