The VAN vs NYRB Dream11 match preview –

The Major League Soccer will see a game being played between two teams from either conference as Vancouver Whitecaps FC travel to face New York Red Bulls in the regular season.

Vancouver Whitecaps are in the 9th spot in the Western Conference and they will be looking to climb up the rankings. The team has won only 3 games so far in the season after playing 13 games, and this is an awful return. The only shot the club has of making the playoffs will be dependent on them winning next 8-9 matches, but that seems to be highly unlikely. The squad is not the strongest and they will be looking to get back to form as soon as they can.

Meanwhile, New York Red Bulls are in the sixth position in the Eastern Conference and are looking decent so far. In 12 games played, they have won five, and lost five times as well. The team has had some problems in scoring goals, but that too has been improving with each passing gameweek. If they are able to work on their defence as well, the side is definitely be going to be making the playoffs this season.

VAN vs NYRB Dream11 Team Predictions-

Team 1:

The team has a 7:4 ratio in favour of New York Red Bulls.

Some of the players here that just cannot be missed are F Montero (VAN), B White (NYRB), L Venuto (VAN), D Royer (NYRB), A Romero Gamarra (NYRB).

The aforementioned five are all forwards, and more often than not are involved in scoring goals for the team. To check their stats out, you can scroll up and find them out.

The x-factor here is definitely S Davis, who is a centre midfielder and he has only missed one game this season. He has scored 1 goal and assisted another in this season so far, but is really consistent in terms of output.
