The first New York derby of the season is coming up on Saturday, when the New York Red Bulls will play host to New York City FC. The Red Bulls are coming off a win that put an end to their win-less streak, while New York City have been struggling to get results lately.

The New York Red Bulls (6-9-4) are coming off a slim 1-0 home win against Columbus on Thursday, in what was a pretty balanced match. That win came after a 7-match win-less streak for the Red Bulls (0-4-3) and it was just their second clean sheet in that span. The Red Bulls are now sitting at the 10th spot of the Eastern Conference with 22 points, scoring 23 and conceding 24 goals. They have been really hard to beat at home so far (5-2-2), scoring 13 and conceding just 7 goals. Moreover, they have kept 5 clean sheets in 9 home matches so far in the season.

New York City (9-6-4) played a really unimpressive match on the road against Philadelphia mid-week, where they lost by a slim 1-0. They conceded the only goal of the match at the 67th minute, scored by Bedoya. They have now won just 1 of their last 5 matches (1-1-3), and that includes a match for the Leagues Cup. New York City are sitting at the 3rd spot of the Eastern Conference with 31 points, scoring 34 and conceding 19 goals, which is the best defense in the Conference. They have not been anything special on the road so far (2-4-3), scoring 10 and conceding 11 goals in the process.

There hasn’t been a visitor win in any of the last 10 matches between the two sides, while the Red Bulls have been spectacular as hosts against NYCFC (8-1-1). We are taking the Draw here.
