New England vs New York City FC Prediction & Match Preview

New England Revolution vs New York City FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Gillette Stadium (Foxborough).

New York needs one more point to seal the conference title, whereas their counterparts need another three to make sure of a playoff ticket. Either will be sweating it out on the pitch to avoid playing things too close to their chest and will go after their respective objectives this match-day itself.

The potential champions have easily been the best of the lot in the East by a mile. They have scored the most number of goals, have conceded the second-least, and have lost the least number of ties in the whole MLS, barring Los Angeles FC.

Revolution meanwhile, is winless in their last five straight games in the league and will have to put in extra shifts to record their needed points.

New England Revolution vs New York City FC Prediction

As mentioned, the guests of the day have been the overall best team in the conference. On the other hand, New England has been mediocre at best, and as of now, they are on a long winless run. In fact, the team has just one win to boast of from their prior nine match-ups and was winless in their former three appearances in front of the home crowd.

On the contrary, New York is unbeaten in their previous nine overall ties and had won seven of these as well. As such, count on them to do their best to post three points on the board.

Coming to goals though, the home team is desperate, and have no other option but to go strong. Helping their cause, they have found the back of the net in 18 of their prior 20 games, whereas their counterparts have not kept a clean sheet in their last 11 road trips.

Consequentially, the BTTS option holds great potential here.
