New York City FC vs Seattle Sounders FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 4 July 2019
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Yankee Stadium (New York).

New York is making a steady climb towards the top of the table and has avoided a loss in the last five match-days. Along with that, they have games in hand and will be aiming to post some useful points which will help their objective even more so.

Currently, they are in the sixth spot, and even if they manage just six points from the four matches they are lagging behind Philadelphia, the pole spot is up for grabs.

Opponents Seattle put an end to their losing run the last day with a narrow win over the Whitecaps, and considering that the second-placed Galaxy has a tough outing against Toronto this game-day, the Sounders will be hoping to keep the momentum going.

But one thing the fans will be wary of would be their performances on the road. So far, they have been able to register just a single win away from home.
