New York City FC vs Dallas FC Prediction
As stated above, Ronny Deila’s team had a rough start to the new season. They had two games on the road, losing both to Columbus Crew and Toronto FC with identical 1-0 score. Fans are not happy with early performances and form of the attacking duo Heber / Mitrita, as they failed to bag one single goal or be dangerous for the opposition.
New York City FC were looking stunning during the pre-season period, having won last three test games with total goal difference of 8-3. They definitely have the quality to reach the playoffs this season, just the form has to be on higher level.
Dallas FC were also super-dominant in friendly matches, and managed to carryover the good shape into the 2020 season. Their campaign started with a home win against Philadelphia Union 2-0 and 2-2 draw against Montreal Impact. Zdenek Ondrasek bagged two goals in abovementioned duels.
We are backing Both teams to score as the banker option, while tip with slightly more risk is going to be draw or away double chance.
