New York City vs Seattle Sounders Match Preview
New York City have been in great shape since early June and made the top 7 cut in Eastern Conference with games in hand as they host Seattle Sounders on the back of a four-match winning streak, where they beat Cincinnati (5-2), North Carolina (4-0), DC United (1-2), and Philadelphia Union (4-2).
Pigeons have been scoring numbers of goals along the way and found the net 15 times along the way, with goals coming from all directions as Heber, Tajouri-Shradi, Alexandru Mitrita bagged two each and Maxi Moralez added three along the way. We thus expect them very motivated once again and very tough to hold back.
Seattle Sounders come into the match on the back of a win of their own, where they edged past Vancouver Whitecaps (1-0) with a last-gasp goal from Kelvin Leerdam to end a streak of four consecutive losses – which saw them drop eight points behind Western Conference pace-setters Los Angeles FC.
Sounders have been scoring goals but found it hard to capitalize beforehand, conceding numbers of goals especially on the road – where they saw seven in losses to Sporting KC (3-2), Dallas (2-1), and Montreal Impact (2-1) since late May. They will now want to build on the display against Whitecaps but we can’t shake off a troubled feeling on the road.
We will thus back New York City to capitalize on such woes on the rivals’ end and we’ll go for them to bag the points in a thrilling contest, backing the home side to win and a Yes on Both teams to score – which combines to an enticing 9/4 with bet365.
We should be in for goals and both sides’ goalscoring tallies point towards such a claim, as we now also back a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 7/10 with Coral. We’ve seen three or more goals in all of NYCFC’s last five outings as well as four of Sounders’ respective last five, which does feel like further evidence for such a bet.
