FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Prediction & Match Preview

FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 23:00 UK/ 00:00 CET
Venue: Nippert Stadium (Cincinnati).

Cincinnati is by far the worst in the MLS by a distance. They are placed dead-last in the Eastern table and has won just 5 of their total 26 fixtures in the league. They have also conceded the most number of goals, 61, whereas the next worst return is just 50.

At home, they have lost their four straight MLS match-ups, and have once again conceded the most.

To take on this struggling squad, comes the second-worst of the East, Columbus. While they have considerable problems of their own, against the absolute worst group in the competition, the visitors should have at least a semblance of an upper hand.

FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last time these two met, which was two weeks back, the result was a 2-2 draw.
  • The clubs have met just thrice so far, and two of the three fixtures saw home wins.
  • Not a single clean sheet has been registered by a squad on the road.

FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Prediction

Cincinnati is winless in their last six matches in a row and lost five of them. They had also conceded twice or more in nine of their last ten games too. At home, they are on a four-tie losing run and had their defense breached twice or more in eight of their last ten.

Meanwhile, Columbus was unbeaten in six of their last seven overall match-ups, and in three of their last four. Importantly, despite their struggles, comparatively, Crew is a far better squad than that of the hosts, and as such, we could count on them to avoid a loss this Sunday.

But the home advantage, along with the fact that Cincinnati scored two goals against this opponent on the road just two weeks back, and the home teams never having failed to score in an h2h encounter – our confidence to back the BTTS option becomes very high.
