The MLS is back in action this weekend as the New York Red Bulls take on Orlando City at the Red Bull Arena on Sunday. The away side has been in excellent form and is the favourite to win this game.

The New York Red Bulls are currently in seventh place in the MLS Eastern Conference table and need to turn their season around in the coming weeks. The Red Bulls were held to a 1-1 draw by Toronto earlier this week and will want to return to winning ways in this game.

Orlando City have their sights set on a top-four finish this season and have not lost a match in the MLS since August. The away side was also held to a 1-1 draw in its previous game but will have the upper hand in this fixture.

The New York Red Bulls have a marginally superior track record in this fixture and have won six games out of a total of 12 matches played between the two sides. Orlando City have managed five victories and may well even the scales by the end of the week.

The two teams clashed in the MLS less than two weeks ago and Orlando City came away with an emphatic 3-1 victory. Junior Urso and Daryl Dike scored on the day and will be looking to find the back of the net again this weekend.
