Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 21st October 2018
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Audi Field, Washington.
DC United has really turned their fortunes around ever since Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney came to their midst. They made a desperate push for the top spots and now they stand at the cusp of achieving glory.
They are already in the sixth place when just two more matches remain, and with three points in the next two games, they can progress without depending on the results of other games.
New York City FC occupies the third spot in the league. They have had a pretty decent season but recently their form has dipped. Against the newly resurgent DC United at their home, the visitors will have to sweat a lot on the pitch

DC United vs New York City FC Prediction
The home team under the stewardship of Wayne Rooney is expected to comfortably keep going with their momentum and enjoy the phenomenal second half of the season they are having right now. They are on amazing home run and with just three points needed to mathematically progress, the players as well as the crowd will be absolutely hungry for the win.
New York City FC has a terrible away record. With just two wins in their last 14 away matches and currently on a four-match winless streak, the guests will be happy to be done with this match regardless of the result. As they have already ensured the post season position, key players will be rested for the travel to preserve the tired legs.
Expect DC to dominate both halves of the match. Wayne Rooney is on a mission to get back his superstar status and will most probably score or assist at least one goal.
