New York Red Bulls vs Inter Miami 7/17/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

The New York Red Bulls will look to extend their unbeaten streak to four matches when they will host a struggling Inter Miami on Saturday. Inter Miami suffered another loss and they are on a sliding 5-match losing streak. But they have been better on the road than they have been at home and will surely want to stop their slide.

The New York Red Bulls (5 wins, 5 losses, 2 draws) are coming into this match after a 1-1 draw at home against Philadelphia. After a goal-less first half, the Red Bulls took the lead at the 60th minute from a penalty kick which also saw Philadelphia’s goalkeeper being sent off. However, Philadelphia pulled even at the 85th minute for the final 1-1. The Red Bulls are unbeaten in their last 3 (1 win, 2 draws), and they have lost just 1 of their last 6 (3 wins, 1 loss, 2 draws). They are sitting at the 7th spot of the Eastern Conference with 17 points, scoring 17 and conceding 15 goals so far. The Red Bulls have been great at home so far (4 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw), scoring 10 and conceding just 4 goals. They have kept 3 clean sheets at home, and have scored exactly 2 goals in all 4 wins.

Inter Miami (2 wins, 7 losses, 2 draws) were really bad in the first half of their away match against Montreal. Their opponents created one shot after the other and they scored the only goal of the match at the 41st minute. That 1-0 loss means that Inter Miami have now lost 5 in a row (while scoring just 1 goal in that span) and have won just 1 of their last 9 (1 win, 6 losses, 2 draws). They have been stuck at the depths of the Eastern Conference for the entire season, currently sitting at the 13th spot of the Eastern Conference with 8 points. They have the worst offense in the Conference with just 9 goals. However, Inter Miami have grabbed 7 of their 8 total points on the road (2 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw), scoring 5 and conceding 6 goals. 

New York Red Bulls vs Inter Miami. The two teams exchanged away wins last season, with each team winning in the opposing venue. The Red Bulls won by 4-1 at Miami but lost by 2-1 at home. They have been much better than Inter Miami this season so taking the Red Bulls to win makes total sense here. The Under 2.5 Goals also looks good, in what is projected to be a Red Bulls win by 1-0.
