In just three days in the American MLS, the so-called Hudson River Derby is played between New York City and New York Red Bull starting at 2 am CET. Three days ago, the score was 1:1 in a game that referee added as long as 14 minutes, and New York Red Bull equalized in the 102nd minute from the penalty spot after City were left with nine players on the pitch.

New York City is a very young team with only a few more experienced players, and is led by Norwegian coach Ronny Deila. In the 25 games of the Eastern Conference, they collected 39 points, are in third place and will almost certainly reach the play-offs in which eight clubs go.

Although this was a development season for City and they wanted to affirm as many young players as possible, they achieved very good results with an attractive play. They play extremely offensive football and with 44 goals are the second most efficient team in this conference, just above New England - leading and best club. They are led by the excellent 22-year-old Argentine Castellanos, the author of 13 goals, but they also have a few other very good players, who can bring an advantage on the pitch.

Head Coach Ronny Deila has two players out for this derby. Midfielder Keaton Parks and defender Maxime Chanot are both missing out due to red cards collected during Wednesday's game against Red Bulls.

- We must have aggressive legs and calm heads, and the support of the fans will mean a lot to us. What they’re giving to us, we’re going to give back to them. I think they’ve done fantastically this season, during the good times and bad times. We’re sticking together and that’s what we need to do now. We need to help each other and support each other - said home coach Ronny Deila.

In their 17 recent home Major League Soccer clashes, New York City have managed to score 1+ goals and scored 2+ goals in all of their last five home league matches.

New York Red Bulls expected more than this season of 27 points in 24 games. They can hardly reach the play-offs, but it can be said that they played better than their results show, they lost a lot of games with only one goal difference.

Three days ago Red Bulls will certainly feel the wind behind their sails after the late Patryk Klimala penalty recovered the result at the very last moment, but as it was for the last few weeks, the team must find a way to create more danger from the run of play if they hope to win at Yankee Stadium today.

Poland striker Klimala has scored in three-straight matches and has recorded a goal or an assist in his last four matches. New York Red Bulls have won only 2 of their last 16 away MLS matches and over 2,5 goals were seen in NY Red Bulls ’last 4 away matches. Coach Gerhard Struber today has injured defenders Lucas Monzon and Aaron Long (achilles), but they have played little this season, while striker Fabio, who has scored five goals in 24 games, is questionable for this game.

This derby shouldn't bring calculations, the motive is big on both sides and both coaches love offensive style. Bet option with at least three goals in total seems realistic in New York...
