As expected, New York City rolled over Cincinnati 5-2 in their last league match, with the team keeping their hopes of clinching top position in the Eastern Conference alive. Domenec Torrent’s troops have been scoring goals for fun in the US Open Cup of late and I are positive that they are going to find the net in Sunday’s football match against Philadelphia Union.
The U, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Minnesota United and New York Red Bulls, but beating New York City on the road is easier said than done. A win over Domenec Torrent’s men will see the visitors retain top position in the Eastern Conference, but given New York City’s fine home record, I believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. You should know that both teams found the net in three of their last four meetings in MLS.
New England take on Houston Dynamo at Gillette Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. The Revs aim to move away from the bottom of the standings, but beating Houston Dynamo is easier said than done. New England did remarkably well to beat Los Angeles Galaxy on the road earlier this month, which is the main reason why I predict the hosts will grab something from the Houston game.
The Dynamo, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Portland Timbers at the weekend, meaning that they are eager to give fans some cheer. Seeing that the visitors made a fine start to the season, I believe that the two teams are going to play out a (2:2) draw at Gillette Stadium this weekend.
