Columbus Crew Preview – Can the Crew get back to winning ways?

Caleb Porter’s Columbus Crew have been in good form of late. However, their impressive nine-game unbeaten run was ended by Montreal in midweek, with the Crew suffering a disappointing 2-1 home reverse. Prior to that, they had won four and drew five of nine.

Despite their good form over the past few months, Columbus have struggled for wins at Field lately. Since a 3-0 success over DC United back in May, the Black & Gold have won just one of their last six on home soil.

Our betting prediction:
New York City to score first

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1508 GMT, Friday 5 August)

After crashing to their first defeat since May in their last outing, Porter’s Crew will be looking to get back to winning ways at the first time of asking this weekend. The home team are priced at 7/5.

New York City Preview – Can the Boys in Blue extend unbeaten run?

New York City have been incredibly tough to beat in MLS this season. After starting the campaign with three defeats from their opening five matches, City have suffered just one loss since. Incredibly, a 2-1 reverse to Philadelphia Union in June remains their only defeat in 17 league games.

Nick Cushing is still in charge after Ronny Deila’s departure, and the Englishman has certainly found his feet in the role. Before last week’s draw with Montreal, the Boys in Blue had picked up consecutive wins over New England Revolution, Dallas, New York Red Bulls and Inter Miami.
