The Hudson River Derby is set to take center stage in the MLS playoff race, with the New York Red Bulls and New York City FC vying for supremacy. Separated by just one point, the two teams are poised for a thrilling showdown.


The Red Bulls have a slight edge in terms of underlying numbers, with a 1.67 xPts per game average compared to NYCFC's 1.54. However, NYCFC's goals added metric suggests they may have a slight advantage.


The real decider may come down to who can make the most impactful signings during the Secondary Transfer Window. The Red Bulls have an open DP spot, while NYCFC may look to add a DP despite their strong attacking form.


With seven home games left, the Red Bulls have a slight advantage in terms of schedule. However, NYCFC's City Football Group connections could give them an edge in the transfer market.


The winner of this derby may ultimately come down to who can best utilize their resources and make the most impactful signings. One thing is certain - the Hudson River Derby is set to be a thrilling spectacle in the MLS playoff race.
