New York City Prediction – Can New York win four on the bounce?

Sunday evening will mark New York City’s fourth home game on the trot and the hosts will no doubt be keen to make the most of it here.

They’ve claimed three wins on the trot, all on home turf, with victories against Cincinnati 5-2, Philadelphia Union 4-2, and Seattle Sounders 3-0.

The hosts will be eager to wrap up this 4-match home stand with another three points against Portland, and they’ll be confident after this 3-match winning streak.

New York City are actually unbeaten in their last 12 matches overall in the MLS, since they suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat away at Toronto back in March.

Following that heavy loss, New York City haven’t looked back as the hosts have claimed 7 wins out of these subsequent 12 matches.

A solid home record of 4-4-0 16/7 at Yankee Stadium also shows that the hosts still remain unbeaten on home soil so far this season.

Indeed, New York City are the only side that remain undefeated at home in the Eastern Conference and they’ll be keen to preserve this status.

Portland Timbers Prediction – Can Portland reduce deficit on play-off pack?

Recent matches have seen Portland Timbers return a mixed bag of results as the visitors occupy a lowly third from bottom position in the Western Conference.

The visitors have recorded just 6 league wins in the MLS so far this season, but 4 of these have been achieved away from home.

This could have something to do with Portland having played just 3 matches at their Providence Park to date this season.

The visitors have played 13 of their 16 matches to date on the road in this season’s MLS where they’ve recorded 4 wins to date.

Victories at Columbus Crew, Toronto, Real Salt Lake and Philadelphia Union mean that Portland need to be respected in this clash.

This is especially so as Portland Timbers have won 3 of the last 4 meetings against New York City and head into this encounter on the back of a 1-0 home win against Dallas.

They’ve scored in 7 of their last 8 away matches, so they could notch again at Yankee Stadium.


Key-Facts – New York City v Portland Timbers

  • New York City still remain unbeaten at home at their Yankee Stadium
  • New York City have won 4 of their last 5 at home in the MLS
  • Portland Timbers have won 3 of the last 4 meetings against New York City


Betting Tips Verdict

New York City appear to be on a roll right now, and whilst Portland Timbers have done well on the road so far, the hosts should just about edge this one.
