TFC Prediction League: Round 13 (@ New York Red Bulls)

New, 16 comments

A tough Eastern Conference matchup awaits on Friday.

MLS: Real Salt Lake at New York Red Bulls Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

As Charlie noted on Thursday, Toronto FC’s record at Red Bull Arena is not good.

It’s ugly, in fact, but the good news is that this Reds team is demonstrating week in, week out that it has no regard for history or precedent. Last year, they proved beyond doubt - despite the final result - that they are a drastically different proposition to the TFC of years gone by and have continued to do so in 2017.

‘Years gone by’ makes those days sound like ancient history, but it was as recently as 2014 that this club, though better than it had been, still suffered from costly losing streaks, behind-the-scenes grumbling and abysmal discipline. The transformation over the two-and-a-third seasons since has been remarkable.

If the 2-10-1 mark on New York Red Bulls turf is on the minds of TFC’s players at all on Friday, then, it will be for reasons of motivation only.

Despite that and the Red Bulls’ three-game losing streak, however, Toronto will know they are in for a tough night on the road. It’s a game difficult enough to call to potentially create some separation in our Prediction League, where four frontrunners are battling it out at the top of the pile.

Mike Whaley backed the Reds to beat Minnesota United on Saturday and continues to lead the way as a result of a lack of correct scoreline picks in the chasing pack behind him. As always, leave your score prediction for tonight’s game in the comments and we’ll do the rest; it’s two points for the result and one each for the number of goals the two teams score.
