New York City vs Cincinnati Match Preview
New York City host Cincinnati hoping to capitalize on the rivals’ woes and return to the winning ways after seeing out two consecutive draws, where they shared the spoils with Chicago Fire (1-1) and Columbus Crew (2-2) on the road.
Pigeons still have a top 7 spot on Eastern Conference table to build on and will now surely be very motivated to do so. They have struggled to turn clashes their way lately but still bagged four draws and a win in five home outings this term, which makes it hard to make a case for an upset now.
Indeed, Cincinnati come into the match with a streak of nine losses in 11 outings, with just one win (2-1 over Montreal Impact) and one draw (1-1 against Sporting KC) also on the records. Both of these have been earned in front of the home fans and the overwhelming defensive struggles have been more obvious on the road.
Orange and Blue have finally started scoring goals on the road but found it hard to capitalize with many defensive slip-ups, as they suffered a 5-1 thrashing at Orlando City and a 3-1 loss at Colorado Rapids – as they conceded two goals late in the match to drop the points at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
We will now back New York City to capitalize on such woes in another exciting occasion, as we stick our necks out for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 21/10 with bet365.
With that in mind, we hope for a rather unconventional contest on the Pigeons’ end, as we now also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/6 with William Hill. We rarely see many goals but with Cincinnati’s struggles to keep it together at the back, it feels like more of a banker bet at this point.
