Team Form and Standings

New York Red Bulls

The Red Bulls have had an impressive season so far, securing 29 points from 17 games. They are averaging 1.71 points per game, a significant improvement from last season’s 1.26.

Despite a recent 1-0 loss to New England Revolution, they have garnered 12 points in their last six league fixtures.

Nashville SC

Nashville, on the other hand, has struggled with consistency. They have only secured two wins in their last six matches and are currently battling to retain their playoff position.

Nashville has 19 points from 17 games and is just five points behind sixth-placed Toronto with a game in hand.

Team News

New York Red Bulls

The Red Bulls will be missing several key players due to international duty and injuries.

Goalkeeper Carlos Coronel, defenders Noah Eile and John Tolkin, midfielders Emil Forsberg and Daniel Edelman, and forward Lewis Morgan are all unavailable.

Additionally, Andres Reyes, Peter Stroud, Roald Mitchell, and Serge Ngoma are expected to return later in June.

Probable Starting XI: Meara; Harper, D. Nealis, S. Nealis, Duncan; Gjengaar, Valencia, Amaya, Carmona; Vanzeir, Manoel

Nashville SC

Nashville will be without midfielder Anibal Godoy, who is at the Copa America with Panama.

Centre-back Lukas MacNaughton is also out following ankle surgery, and Randall Leal remains a doubt after last featuring against Inter Miami in April.

Probable Starting XI: Willis; Moore, Zimmerman, Maher, Lovitz; Davis, Yearwood; Muyl, Mukhtar, Boyd, Surridge

Prediction

Given the current form and absentees, this match is poised to be highly competitive.

New York Red Bulls have shown stronger performance metrics this season, but their missing players might level the playing field.

Both teams have shown defensive vulnerabilities, suggesting an open and entertaining match.
