New York City News and Form – Leaders to pick up another three points?

New York City have had a fine season up until now, winning 15, drawing eight and losing only five. Domenec Torrent’s boys have claimed an impressive 53 points from 28 games played so far.

Last weekend, New York City secured a narrow victory over New England at Yankee Stadium. Jesus Medina was the hero, netting twice in the 2-1 win, with his second coming in injury time.

In the overall table, only Los Angeles are above them. The Pigeons have also scored 53 goals, making them the third highest scorers in America’s top tier behind LA and Philadelphia.

Torrent’s troops have been remarkably strong on home soil in recent months, winning nine of their last ten in all competitions at Yankee Stadium. Can New York pick up another home victory in this one?

Toronto FC News and Form – Can the Reds extend their unbeaten run?

Toronto FC head to Yankee Stadium in fine fettle. The Ontario franchise, who are managed by Ali Curtis and coached by Greg Vanney, are unbeaten in their last seven league and cup matches. Since losing 2-0 at New York Red Bulls over a month ago, Toronto have won four and drawn three of seven.

The Reds ran riot in Cincinnati in their last MLS outing. Goals from Patrick Mullins, Nick DeLeon, Marco Delgado, Michael Bradley and Nicolas Benezet helped them to a convincing 5-1 win at the Nippert Stadium in Ohio.

Toronto currently occupy sixth place in the Eastern Conference table at the moment. Overall, the Canadians have won 11, drawn eight and lost ten, with seven of those wins coming at BMO Field. Away from home, Toronto have sealed four MLS wins, beating Philadelphia 3-1, Orlando City 2-0, Montreal Impact 2-0 and Cincinnati 5-1 last week.

Of course, this will be an extremely tough test at New York City’s fortress Yankee Stadium. However, the Reds, who are in good form themselves at the moment, will fancy their chances of causing an upset in the Big Apple in midweek.

New York City v Toronto FC Predictions

New York City win: Toronto FC make the trip to New York in very good shape. The Reds have been hard to beat of late, losing only one of their last nine in all competitions. However, Torrent’s men are in blistering form at this moment in time, winning each of their last five since falling to a 2-1 defeat in Atlanta in mid-August.

The Boys in Blue will be out for revenge after their humiliating 4-0 loss at BMO Field back in March, and the home team should edge past the Canadian outfit in this one. Check out the very tempting odds of 8/1 for New York to win 2-1.

During their five-game winning streak, New York City have had to battle for their 15 points. I can see Toronto netting in the Bronx, but the hosts should outscore their opponents. Back the home side to win and both teams to score at 12/5.
