New York City vs DC United Match Preview
Wayne Rooney will have enjoyed condemning New York City to defeat with two goals in the last meeting between these clubs and must be targeting more success this weekend.
The former England captain loved scoring against Manchester City, whose owners also have the Big Apple club of the same name in their portfolio, during his time with Manchester United – not least that famous acrobatic overhead volley at Old Trafford.
Rooney’s double secured a 3-1 home win for DC against City last autumn and the team from the American capital have started this season brightly with a 2-0 victory against reigning MLS champions Atlanta United.
That will have given them considerable hope that they can trouble City despite their poor record on the road last year (see stats above) and their opponents’ strength at the Yankee Stadium – only two defeats in 19 games.
Undefeated in their last 12 matches – they only exited the play-offs on penalties – DC are backed to maintain that record especially now City’s chief tormentor of them, David Villa who had scored nine goals in as many matches against United, has left to play in Japan.
