New York Red Bulls vs New York City by Rahul
New York City have one of the best strikers in the world in David Villa who has already lit up the league netting 13 goals so far leading his New York City team; who would have been in a far worse of situation if he hadn't started the campaign from the get go. New York City should also have starts for Lampard and Pirlo in the midfield to pull the strings in terms of creativity as well as on set pieces. Pirlo in particular is one of the best free-kick takers of all time and will be encouraged to take a pop at goal for any opportunity in front of the target. Defensively New York have struggled conceding 34 goals in 22 games, which is among the worst defences in the league.
New York Red Bulls have relied this season and last season on Bradley Wright Phillips to do the bulk of their scoring. He has so far netted 9 goals this campaign; and will be targeting to continue his great form in this derby game in front of their home fans to go 3-0 on the season as against New York City FC. In addition to scoring he has also contributed to 5 assists to his team mates, showing what a good all round player he is.
There will be lots of goals in this encounter if the previous outings are anything to go by; and with both teams having prolific forwards; both teams to score looks a certainty
