FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-off at 0:30 UK/ 1:30 CET
Venue: Nippert Stadium (Cincinnati).
FC Cincinnati started its MLS journey in 2019 and in the first season, they finished 12th in the Eastern conference and were at the 24th place in the overall list. The Orange and Blue outfits did not enter the play-offs, and are at a similar form this season too.
Columbus Crew is leading the table this season, which shows a significant improvement in their form. The Black and Gold was at the 10th spot in the Eastern conference last season and did not qualify for the play-offs as they ended up at the 20th place in the overall MLS table.

FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Prediction
FC Cincinnati is hosting with a two-game winless record in their form. Besides, they lost 3-0 to Chicago Fire at home in the last MLS clash, which is why backing the home team seems to be a mistake.
The host had given away all three points in a 0-4 loss against the Crew earlier in their first home match this season. Columbus Crew was on a six-game unbeaten run until they lost away from home in the last match against New York City.
Even though they are visiting on the back of an away loss, Caleb Porter’s boys are equipped to make a comeback, especially against a side that is 9 points behind them in the table.
To be safer, the draw no bet over Columbus Crew will be a suitable option for the punters along with the chance of the visitor to win either half of the game in ninety minutes.
