New York City Preview – Will City bounce back with three points?

New York City have had a topsy-turvy campaign, but the Pigeons have put themselves in a good position to take one of the seven play-off places in the Eastern section. Overall, City have won 13, drawn six and lost eight.

Their recent form has been poor, however, as Nick Cushing’s side have taken just four points from the last 18 on offer. Since a draw with Montreal in late July, New York have lost four of the following five.

Our betting prediction:
New York City to keep a clean sheet

(odds taken 1800 GMT, Wednesday 31 August)

The Boys in Blue have been very hard to topple on their own patch this term, with the recent loss to Charlotte being the club’s first home reverse since March. New York have won eight of 13 at Yankee Stadium. They will be desperate to get back on track with three points from this one.

DC United Preview – Can Black-and-Red cause an upset?

The 2022 MLS season has been a struggle for DC United. They kicked off the campaign with two wins from two, but Black-and-Red have won just four MLS matches since then. Wayne Rooney, who took over in July, has failed to turn the club’s fortunes around.

DC United are looking more and more likely to finish rock bottom of MLS this season. They beat Orlando City in Rooney’s first game in charge, but five losses and a draw has followed. United are bottom of the pile with a mere 22 points to their name.
