Seattle Sounders vs New York City FC
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 29th July 2018
Kick off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: CenturyLink Field (Seattle).

Seattle Sounders have found decent form and even though that includes 3 recent draws they have just won back to back games. They are still in 10th place in the Western conference and are 7 points from a play-off but there is a new belief in the team.

At home they have the 2nd to worst record in the league but again form has been improving and they have just 1 loss in their past 4 as they look to finish the season on a strong note.

New York City are flying high and are in 2nd place in the Eastern conference. This is a big trip for the club almost 3,000km and hopefully they have come well prepared for this game.

On form they have the best in the Eastern conference winning their last 4 games in a row, so the team are full of confidence. Away from home they beat Orlando last time out but their form has been poor with losses and draws. Overall they have won just 3 games from 10 all season.

Seattle Sounders vs New York City: Prediction

For small stakes we will back Seattle to get a surprise win over New York City. The travel distance will always remain a factor and Seattle are in good form. Of course New York are too, but the home side would have had more preparation time before the game and training sessions. It could be a very close game but we will opt for the home side to get all three points.
