New York City vs Vancouver Whitecaps Preview and Prediction

New York City vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 5th August 2018
Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Yankee Stadium (New York City).

New York City have been brilliant this season with only the odd bad result and they are in 2nd place in the Eastern conference, 4 points behind leaders Atlanta United but they do have an extra game to play, so there is all to play for.

They were shocked last week when they lost against Seattle Sounders 3-1 but they did have a near 3,000km trip to make and they will welcome being at home again to take on Vancouver Whitecaps who themselves will have a huge trip for this match.

New York City have been superb at home and easily have the best record in the conference where they have won 31 points from a possible 33. They have scored 27 goals at home and only conceded 4, and will by far be the favourites to win this game.

Vancouver Whitecaps are in 7th place in the Western conference and are just two points shy of a play-off position. Form has been very mixed as they have lost 2 out of their last 4 games but they did win last week, scoring 4 goals in a 4-2 victory over Minnesota. Away from home they have lost 7 games from 11 including losing their last 3 in a row.

New York City vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams met here New York City won 3-2.

New York City vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Prediction

Our bet here is to see a very exciting game with lots of chances and we think New York City will be able to win this.

Vancouver have the quality to score and so our main bet will be to see the home side win at half time because they are 1.30 to win at full time.

And we will also look into correct score betting and both teams to get on the score sheet in what should be a very entertaining game, but the home side have more quality to get all three points.
