Match Predictions: New York Red Bulls vs Real Salt Lake

Can our predictions at least not go into a 5 match losing streak in MLS?

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports
Name W/L/D RBNY RSL Why?
Aaron Bauer Win 2 0 WE WILL WIN BECAUSE I WILL BE THERE AND THEY HAVE TO WIN ON MY FIRST EVER RED BULLS GAME #AARONDAY
Alex Showell Loss 1 2 The Red Bulls are in a downward spiral and without Kljestan they will struggle. Unless Jesse Marsch changes the lineup or his tactics expect another loss.
Antonio Salazar Win 1 0 The Red Bulls will end their losing streak when Real Salt Lake visit them this week. Sacha Kljestan's suspension will force coach Jesse Marsch to make some much needed changes, Kljestan's absence may end up being a blessing for the Red Bulls.
Austin Fido Win 3 1 I refuse to believe in five in a row.
Bobby Celentano Draw 1 1 With five MLS games winless in a row, 4 of which being losses (in a row), I just can't see RBNY pulling off a W. Yet, New York didn't play horrible against Vancouver on Saturday given being down a man basically the whole match, so I have a bit of hope come Wednesday.
Jason Iapicco Draw 1 1 I am not confident about this team scoring goals anymore. Bradley Wright-Phillips isn't used as a goal scorer, and when he is in position to be so, he isn't getting service. The wings are ineffective while the central midfield is becoming a bottleneck. That they were even in the Vancouver match is a testament to the center backs and Luis Robles, but they can't carry a team forever.
JasonRBNY Loss 0 2 Sam probably still out on injury. No Kljestan. Dax looks tired. Felipe is befuddled. BWP out of position and distracted. Hopefully we get Taxi back, but if not, this could be Ugly Match Part V.
Josh Hargett Draw 1 1 Gotta stop losing at some point, right?
Lester Banana Loss tacos peanut brittle My bookie told me that if RSL doesn't cover the spread, he'll murder my whole family.
Pat Glodkowski Draw 2 2 Team isn't playing all that well, and with a mid week game doesn't seem like the stars will play on either side. Even a point is wishful think against RSL
Patrick MacDonald Win 2 1 Red Bulls win is my prediction
Steve Toto Draw 1 1 RBNY are beginning panic mode. They need to get points at home to stay in the playoff hunt. They still haven't solved all of their issues, and they'll be without Klejstan because of his red card. Hopefully Lloyd Sam can save the day.
Truman Win 1 0 Can't lose yet another game, right? RIGHT???
