New York RB vs Inter Miami Match Preview
New York RB have made a solid if unspectacular start to the 2021 MLS campaign, pocketing 17 points from the first 12 games of the new season, but in a tightly packed Eastern Conference, the Red Bulls could jump from seventh to third with a victory this weekend.
Their form in New Jersey – where they have won four and drawn one of their last five assignments – has been particularly impressive, though coach Gerhard Struber was visibly frustrated after RB let a lead slip late on at home to Philadelphia Union (1-1) last time out.
Patryk Klimala’s second goal for New York RB was the standout moment for the hosts and the off-season acquisition from Scottish giant Celtics should have renewed confidence this weekend following his expertly dispatched spot-kick.
Inter Miami meanwhile, are propping up the rest in the Eastern Conference following a dismal run of five straight defeats and English manager Phil Neville – who was only appointed in January – already looks like a man feeling the pressure.
The Herons have looked worryingly toothless in the final third, in fact, Inter’s miserly nine-goal haul for the campaign makes them the lowest scorers in the MLS and they are dangerously over-reliant on veteran superstar Gonzalo Higuain to produce moments of magic.
New York RB vs Inter Miami Picks
New York RB Moneyline at -120
Spirits are certain to be low in the Inter Miami camp following their five-match losing streak and the Eastern Conference’s worst performers should struggle against a New York RB outfit that have looked formidable at their own patch.
Red Bulls have collected 2.1 points per game in New Jersey this season and in exciting midfielders Cristian Casseres Jr and Caden Clark, the hosts wield a pair of match-winners that Inter should find difficult to handle.
Under 2.5 Goals at -120
Inter Miami failed to find the net in each of their last three fixtures on the road, though Phil Neville’s toiling Herons did at least show a dogged side to their character in defence.
Inter lost by a single goal (1-0) in each of their defeats to Chicago Fire, D.C United and Montreal and it’s worth noting that four of their six away contests overall this season produced under 2.5 goals.
With New York RB averaging a modest 1.6 goals per 90 minutes in New Jersey this term, it’s worth taking under 2.5 goals at the odds quoted this weekend.
