Red Bulls head to Orlando in MLS East

Orlando City SC welcome the New York Red Bulls to the Exploria Stadium for their next Major League Soccer clash. The home team are the most likely victors in this match, with most soccer betting sites backing them as the future champions. They’ve certainly been gaining momentum and climbing the ladder with an eight-game undefeated streak.

The Red Bulls had a tough start to the season, but they come into this clash after netting eight goals in back-to-back wins. Despite NY’s improvement in their last two performances, they still have a long way to go before reaching the same level as Orlando.

Liverpool and Arsenal had a thrilling clash on Monday in the English Premier League, where the Reds recovered from an early scare to win 3-1. The two giants of UK football will face off again this week in their round of 16 EFL Cup match.

With just a couple of days to prepare for Thursday’s match, we doubt Arsenal will show any significant improvement in the rematch. Both sides are likely to make changes, but betting sites are well in favor of the Reds.
