Preview: Philadelphia Union vs. New York Red Bulls - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Saturday's Major League Soccer clash between Philadelphia Union and New York Red Bulls, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

New York Red Bulls are gunning for a third league win on the trot on Sunday when they travel to Subaru Park to take on Philadelphia Union.

The home side are unbeaten in each of their last two games after suffering back-to-back defeats prior to that.

Philadelphia Union still await their first home league win of the season following a 1-1 draw against New England Revolution on Thursday.

Two goals in quick succession from Teal Bunbury and Kacper Przybylko in the final 10 minutes ensured a share of the spoils in Chester.

Jim Curtin's men are just outside the playoff places in the Eastern Conference on goal difference, and a win in this one would move them into the top seven.

Given their record in this fixture, Sunday's hosts will be poised to continue a run of three straight home wins against the visitors.

New York Red Bulls made it two home wins in a row following a 2-0 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday.

Frankie Amaya and Caden Clark were on target in either half to hand Gerhard Struber's men a well-deserved three points.

The Metro have now recovered from their shaky start to the season which saw them lose each of the first two matches.

Sunday's visitors are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference at the moment, two points adrift of current leaders CF Montreal with a game in hand.

SM words green background

We say: Philadelphia Union 1-0 New York Red Bulls

We are anticipating a low scoring affair in this one with both teams renowned for being defensively frugal. However, we are also tipping the home side to claim a narrow win at the sound of the full-time whistle.
