New York City FC vs Los Angeles FC Match Preview
New York City host Los Angeles FC for their MLS clash on Sunday looking for their first win this term, after bagging just two points in first two outings this term – where they shared the spoils with Orlando (2-2) and DC United (0-0) since early March.
Pigeons have been a very tough side to beat at Yankee Stadium and will have to base their success on such performances here this term as well, which promises Domenec Torrent’s men in a great mood once again despite struggling to turn clashes their way so far.
Los Angeles FC promise a great challenge, though, and come into the match after beating both Sporting KC (2-1) and Portland Timbers (4-1) in two high-scoring clashes in front of the home fans, sitting behind Seattle Sounders t the top of the Western Conference table only for their goal difference.
LAFC have a lot to prove after struggles away from home through most part of the last campaign, where snatching points at Yankee Stadium comes off as an important task. They have been led by Carlos Vela in the final third but saw goals from all directions, which surely promises a great challenge from Bob Bradley’s men.
We will now back New York City to overcome it and bag their first win this term, going for a Home win at 11/10 with William Hill. LAFC could struggle to keep up their performances early on away from home and the home side should be able to capitalize.
However, we have seen the visitors scoring many goals early on and we do feel they’ll get on the scoresheet now as well. With that in mind, we’re going for a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/15 with bet365 – which has been rated banker material by many in the know.
