What'a your build for that particular team? 5 in red should have higher probability of making match-5?
If you see opponent with red as strongest colour, you can try using Rogue and 3* Cyclops. Since SC is so popular, it's not difficult to find one. She will double your red ap gains and triple SC's match damage. 3* Cyclops will feed you more red. Go in with +2 green aps. The only thing you need to worry is hitting 14 red aps because Rogue will explode.
