Red Bull Arena sees Sunday action as Red Bulls take on Chicago – 1:00am GMT.

Eleventh placed Chicago, are away to tenth placed Red Bulls on Sunday.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen New York Red Bulls achieve 22 points

Columbus Crew were beaten 1-0 at Red Bull Arena, the last time that Red Bulls played.

Gerhard Struber knows that a run of four losses in six games for his Red Bulls side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. They currently stand tenth in the League, with 22 points having won six fixtures, drawn four matches, and lost nine meetings.

Playing at home, Red Bulls have won five fixtures, drawn two games, and lost two games.

New York Red Bulls will see 25 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

With the Major League Soccer season well into its stride, Chicago Fire have managed to gain 20 points

Whilst Chicago need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for Chicago after losing against Orlando City and Inter Miami would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Suffering 11 losses in 20 games is a terrible run of form for any club, Raphael Wicky’s Chicago will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. With 20 points, they currently sit eleventh in the League having won five matches, drawn five fixtures, and lost 11 fixtures.

Chicago’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Red Bulls. In the 8 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far drawn one game and lost seven matches.

A win in this fixture, would take Chicago Fire’s points from 20 to 23, so far this season.

New York Red Bulls v Chicago Fire – Head-to-Head.

The recent form between these two sides has seen Chicago with a greater number of wins. In the last 66 meetings, they have enjoyed 32 wins, to Red Bulls’s 21 wins. Additionally, Chicago have won fourteen out of 20 games when visiting Red Bulls. In their most recent meeting of this fixture was August 2021 and the score line ended up with a 2-1 away win for Metro. Previous matches between these teams have been high-scoring affairs and the odds of both sides finding the net on Sunday are high (63.29%) so it should be an entertaining match.

The odds of a Red Bulls win are currently 54.64 percent.
