There were no clear favourites, on one hand, the visitors had a slightly bigger chance as they doing good in the MLS Eastern Conference though. With recorded five wins, four draws and two losses they are on the upper half of the table.
On the other hand, NYRB started to get into the better form after a pretty bad season start. Last week they achieved a magnificent victory against LA Galaxy. In addition to that, the previous meetings make NYRB’s side hopes stronger since Montreal the last victory at Red Bull Arena was in 2016.
