New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls

I believe the hosts will win here. I see three main reasons. Here are they: First of all, New England Revolution are in good form. They have five wins on the last six matches in MLS. The home form is particularly good, three wins on the last three league matches at home. Here are the results: 25.05.2014. New England – DC United 2:1 12.05.2014. New England – Seattle 5:0 27.04.2014. New England – Kansas City 2:0 The second reason is connect with the actual situation in both teams. While New England are almost complete, New York have lot of important missing players. The skipper Thierry Henry has traditionally missed the games played on artificial pitches in recent years because of a chronic Achilles problem. Most probably Henry will not play here. But even if Henry does play, the club’s roster is weakened as two regulars, Tim Cahill and Roy Miller, are on international duties with their respective countries (Australia and Costa Rica) preparing for the World Cup in Brazil. Their absence is a big handicap for the coach Mike Petke. In addition, the midfielder Dax McCarty is out with a knee injury. The last reason is connect with the last mutual results. The hosts have two wins and one draw on the last three mutual matches when New York were visiting them. Here are the results: 13.06.2013. New England – New York 4:2 – US Open Cup 2013 12.05.2013. New England – New York 1:1 24.02.2013. New England – New York 2:0 – Desert Diamond Cup 2013 As You can see, both victories were in handicap. I expect something similar again.
