New York City FC vs Minnesota United FC
Major League Soccer
Date: Friday, 30th June 2017
Kick-off at 0:30 UK/ 1:30 CET
Venue: Yankee Stadium.
The New York City FC grabbed a surprise win against city rivals Red Bulls last week, which helped them move up to third in the Eastern Conference table. The win is their third on the bounce in a four match unbeaten run and Viera’s men scored exactly 2 goals in each of those four encounters.
It will be interesting to know that NYCFC have now scored in 16 consecutive league games. The only time they failed to find the back of the net was in the opening day’s 1-0 defeat away at Orlando City.
At home, the Blues can boast of a solid record with figures of 5 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss from 8 matches. No need to emphasize the fact that they scored in every home game so far.
On the other hand, Minnesota are coming on the back of a hard fought 2-2 draw at home against Vancouver Whitecaps. The new franchise team extended their unbeaten run to two game, but both came from home matches.
Minnesota United are still searching for their first away win of the season, or the first ever away win in MLS. They lost 6 and drew 2 of their 8 games on the road. Also, they are the worst defensive side in away games, having conceded 23 goals so far.
