Columbus Crew vs FC Cincinnati
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 11 August 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium (Columbus).
These two occupy the bottom-most positions in the East, and of the two, Cincinnati has a legitimate claim on the tag of the worst of the whole of MLS.
The defense has been their major problem throughout this campaign. To quote a stat, the team has conceded a total of 55 goals, while nine of the total twelve squads in the conference have not even breached the 40-mark.
Crew is no great team either. But one thing they have got going on for them is their home advantage, and the eight-point surplus over this set of visitors. If this weekend goes well, Columbus could distance themselves more from the bottom-dwellers.

Columbus Crew vs FC Cincinnati Prediction
Crew is unbeaten in their last four matches and scored two or more goals in three of these. In addition, just the last match-day, the squad delivered a loss to the top-tier Montreal Impact, with the aid of a 2-1 scorecard.
On the other hand, Cincinnati lost 16 of their last 20 overall fixtures, and ten of their last eleven on the road. Moreover, they also lost their sole trip to this stadium, and could not even record a goal in the process.
Finally, 100% of h2h ties have seen the hosts of the day winning, and keeping clean sheets.
All these points towards a very strong possibility of Crew registering a win to nil.
