Team news Austin FC

Austin FC has only been around since last season 2021 and has done surprisingly well since then. Despite not making it to the playoffs in their debut season, they’re currently showing their best form. Head coach Josh Wolff‘s team is currently in second place in the league, just one point behind Los Angeles FC, which has invested heavily.

But Austin has also strengthened their team well this season. Argentine Sebastian Driussi, in particular, is providing a lot of momentum in Austin’s attack and is his team’s top scorer with 11 goals, benefiting greatly from assists from Uruguay’s Diogo Fagundez. Austin’s captain is the experienced Finn Alexander Ring, who previously played in the Bundesliga for Borussia M’Gladbach and 1. FC Kaiserslautern. He pulls the strings in the central midfield.

Most recently, Austin went 5 games in a row without defeat. Until the draw in the Texas derby against Dallas, they’d even won four games in a row.

Team news New York RB

While Austin is still a newcomer to MLS, the New York Red Bulls have been in MLS since the mid-1990s, first under the name New York/New Jersey MetroStars.

Since 2007, they’ve been part of the Red Bull soccer empire and therefore have an excellent infrastructure in terms of scouting and youth development. In that respect, they’re way ahead of Austin. The New York coach also brings a lot of experience from the franchise: Austrian Gerhard Struber was a coach at the Red Bull Academy for years. Before joining the Red Bulls, he surprisingly led Wolfsberg AC to the Europa League.
But the players who make the big difference are missing from New York’s squad at the moment. The most noticeable player this season is Scottish striker Lewis Morgan, who’s already contributed nine goals. The long-time Celtic striker joined New York this season from Inter Miami. With few exceptions, the Red Bulls have all their best players available and will try to turn things around in Texas.


  • Austin FC and the New York Red Bulls have yet to play an official game against each other.
  • Austin has averaged 2.44 goals scored and 0.89 goals conceded at home.
  • New York RB also has a positive goal-scoring record away from home: 1.45-1.00
  • New York receives an average of 3.18 cards per game (Austin “only” 1.67)
  • Austin scores 32% of its goals in the first half hour (NY only 19%)
  • New York is the second-best home team this season
  • The referee is Guido Gonzalez. He gives out an average of 4.5 cards.

Our betting prediction for Austin FC vs. New York Red Bulls

Austin has been in an upward form lately, while New York Red Bulls are getting weaker with every game after a strong start to the season, especially since the international break. In particular, Austin’s South American forward line of Maxi Urruti (31, Argentina), Diego Fagundez (27, Uruguay) and new signing Sebastian Driussi (26, Argentina) is proving to be a potent offensive weapon against opposing defences. The New York Red Bulls, on the other hand, have suffered a goal drought lately – especially in games on the opponent’s pitch: in the last six away games, the New Yorkers have scored only 3 goals – while Austin has scored 11 goals in the last 6 home games.

In the end, there’s a lot in favour for Austin FC staying at the top of the table, and depending on how Los Angeles FC plays its away game against Sporting Kansas City, they could take it back. That’s why we are betting on a home win for the Texans with an Asian Handicap of -0.25, which means that in case of a draw you’ll get half of your stakes back.

Bet: Austin FC -0.25 Asian Handicap @2.05 Bet365 and others

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
