New York City Preview – Easy victory for the Boys in Blues?

New York City head into Thursday’s fixture in good shape. The Pigeons have won their last two, beating Cincinnati 4-0 and Inter Miami 3-2. It was a thriller in Florida last weekend, as New York left with a 3-2 win thanks to a double from Alexandru Mitrita and an Anton Tinnerholm strike.

New York have been playing their games at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey lately, but that has not bothered them too much. Ronny Deila’s men have won four of their last five home matches in MLS.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 2010 GMT, Tuesday 6 October)

The Boys in Blue from the Yankee Stadium are fifth in the Eastern Conference at the time of writing. In the combined table, New York find themselves in seventh, eight points behind leaders Columbus and Toronto. Can City seal another crucial three points in midweek?

DC United Preview – Capital club to crash to another MLS defeat?

DC United have had a season to forget up until now. They are bottom of the combined MLS table ahead of this round of fixtures, sitting on a mere 11 points from 15 games. Overall, the Black-and-Reds have picked up just two wins, drawn five games and suffered a whopping eight defeats.

Since drawing 2-2 with Toronto at Audi Field in September, Ben Olesen’s side have lost each of their last three, falling to defeats to Nashville, New England and Atlanta United without scoring a single goal.

United have been poor away from home this term, though they did seal a surprise 1-0 win over New York Red Bulls at the Red Bull Arena a month back, with Erik Sorga scoring in injury-time to give them all three points on the road. Can they beat New York opposition once again?


New York City vs DC United Betting Advice

Back in September, the teams played out a goalless draw at Audi Field. They also drew 0-0 at the Yankee Stadium last season, though New York picked up a 2-0 win in the US capital in the reverse game.


Key Facts – New York City vs DC United Betting Tip

  • New York City have won just one of their last six against DC
  • Three of the previous five meetings have ended in draws
  • United have failed to score in their last three against the Pigeons


With Olesen’s United in such poor form, we can only see one winner in this one. As New York City look to close the gap on the teams above them as we slowly approach the end of the season in the States, Deila’s troops will be desperate for all three points on Thursday.

In truth, this could be a walk in the park for the home team. Put some money on the Pigeons to be winning at half time and full time at evens with Unibet.
