Minnesota United vs New York City Match Preview
Minnesota United are set for their first MLS clash at Allianz Field as they host New York City on Saturday, looking to build on a great 1-2 win at New York RB earned last week as well as the top 7 spot on the Western Conference table.
Loons have thus ended a streak of two losses in a row, where they saw both LA Galaxy (3-2) and New England (2-1) secure the points on the road despite finding the net on both occasions. They will now want to impress in the final third once again and we expect Adrian Heath’s men in a great mood.
New York City have, on the other hand, struggled to turn the clashes their way and earned just four points in the first five outings. They’ve held Orlando (2-2), DC United (0-0), Los Angeles (2-2), and Montreal Impact (0-0) to draws but suffered a thrashing 4-0 loss in Toronto- which exposed their defensive shortcomings.
Pigeons have struggled defensively on the road late last term and we’ve seen more of the same in 2019, as they conceded six goals in two trips. They’ve struggled to score goals more recently and this will feel even more worrying for Domenec Torrent and his men.
We will now back Minnesota United to secure all three points and capitalize on such woes on the rivals’ end, as we now go for a Home win at 10/11 with bet365 – which seems great value as we expect them very motivated to impress at Allianz Field.
We expect a narrow occasion and we don’t see the visitors making it on the scoresheet on the day either, hoping to see the Loons keep them from finding the net for the third time in a row. We’ll thus go for Minnesota to keep a clean sheet and backing it 9/4 with Paddy Power feels like a lively longshot.
