New York Red Bulls vs Toronto – MLS : After what happened on the first round of the play-off…
Especially on the Eastern Conference, we have already realized that the advantages brought from the regular stage don’t always translate into real advantages on the knockout rounds.
Therefore, on a match between the New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC, the 6th and 1st placed teams in the Conference,
it is better to forget about the results that both teams achieved and focus in what they will be able to do here.
The New York Red Bulls have battered the Chicago Fire, playing with their own unique style they have been using over the course of the last few months.
They are a team with a matchless collective dynamic, always having its players very close on a tight block,
both with and without the ball, being capable of creating several dangerous situations near the opponents’ goal with some combinations.
Two players stand out on that aspect are Sacha Kljestan, an authentic mix between a position 10 and a maestro, which is the player that is the centre of the team’s organization.
But also, Tyler Adams, a youngster with central midfielder characteristics but playing on the right wing.
New York Red Bulls vs Toronto – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Toronto FC had the chance to rest mid-week and they might come into this match with the hunger that has characterized them throughout the season.
Despite, on the attacking front, Giovinco and Altidore standing out due to their ability to create and score, there are many other aspects to consider on this team.
A strong midfield who pressures hard and is very capable of organizing itself on the attack. A defensive line that doesn’t give its opponents much space, due to a clever positioning on the field.
That’s right, Toronto FC will be one of the hardest teams to beat on this competition.
Despite this being the first leg of this knockout round, we should see some goal scoring thirst since early in the encounter.
