New York City vs New England
United States – MLS
Date: Thursday, 6 September 2018
Kick-Off at 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET
Venue: Yankee Stadium, New York City.
The Revs were just one spot short of making it to the play-offs last term and they could be dropped out of the top-six by the same margin this time out without a turnaround in form in the final quarter of the regular season.
New England are desperate for a rebound victory after a streak of three losses and a draw in last four league outings. Moreover, they are winless in last nine matches.
Can they bring the negative trend to the end against Eastern Conference rivals New York City on Wednesday evening at Yankee Stadium?
The hosts, who sit third on the East, will also come into the match low on confidence after picking up just one point from last three league outings.
Two of these, however, were on the road which is a big difference when it comes to Domenec Torrent’s side.
The Pigeons look to be a completely different side when they play at their Yankee Stadium. They won 10 and drew 3 of last 13 home matches in the league, meaning New England have slim chances of a rebound victory in mid-week fixture.
New York City vs New England: Head-to-head
- The Revs lead the H2H tie by a single win coming into their 11th meeting with the Blues.
- New England, however, won just one of five matches at Yankee Stadium.
- The Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS option “came in” in all of last five head to head encounters.
New York City vs New England: Prediction
The home win just has to be the only logical betting options here. New England have been dreadful travellers for a while now, they are winless in nine subsequent matches in the MLS and they have nothing to hope for against an outfit which won 10 and drew 3 of last 13 home games in the competition.
The head to head stats also speak in New York City’s favour (matches at Yankee Stadium), meaning we have to take the home win as a banker at 1.57 odds.
New England failed to score in three of last four away games and we’ll alternatively try with the Pigeons to keep a clean sheet at 2.75 odds.
