DC United vs New England Prediction & Match Preview

DC United vs New England Revolution
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 13 July 2019
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Audi Field (Washington).

DC may have runner-up spot in the East, but they have been struggling to post results that are in tandem with their standing. While their defense has been doing a good job, the front line has not been on full flow, affecting their points-tally.

Their hopes for this match though is soaring high, taking into account the home advantage, and the vastly superior h2h stats they hold against this opponent.

Coming to the visitors, they’ll be looking to go against the established trend and score a win against these hosts, which they have been quite unable to do so for quite some time. But coupled with their current form to the woes of Wayne Rooney’s group, the objective seems realistic.

New England is just below the final playoff spot in the same conference, but with an unbeaten live streak, they hope to go over the cut-off line.

DC United vs New England Revolution Prediction

DC is struggling to keep its form consistent, but the home advantage will shift the scales in their direction.

They had avoided a loss in six of their last eight matches and did the same in seven of their last nine in front of the home crowd.

On the other hand, despite their form, England is still lacking in their away stats. They have returned just four wins from their last 27 road trips and failed to keep a clean sheet in 18 of their last 20 such games. Importantly, DC registered six of the last eight h2h wins and won the last seven straight clashes at this stadium.

As such, expect United to be in line for the three points, but a clean sheet really is out of the question for them. They have failed to keep a sturdy defense in nine of their last ten overall ties, and in eight of their last ten in front of the home crowd. Moreover, New England found the back of the net in their last seven games, and in 17 of their last 21 on the road.

With these in mind, backing the BTTS option should provide good returns.
