Reason For FC Cincinnati vs New York City Predictions

Cincinnati ended their losing streak last weekend when they held Columbus Crew to a 2-2 draw but need to build on that away point by collecting all three on Sunday. New York City were defeated on the road by Atlanta United 2-1 last time out but have won three of their last five matches and will be confident of making a return to winning ways this weekend.

All of the stats suggest we are going to treated to goals in this game and favour a win for visiting New York City. Both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced when these two teams met for the first time back in June, where New York City claimed a 5-2 win it what the stats suggest was a fairly even ninety minutes. New York City edge the overall possession, as you would expect for the home side, with 53% but both teams corners and shot tallies were very similar and in the end, it was purely down to superior finishing that new York City won the game.

The form of these two sides points towards New York City winning on Sunday as Cincinnati have lost four of their last five matches, against the likes of Vancouver Whitecaps, Toronto, New England, and DC United, while New York City have won three of their last five matches, including 3-2 and 3-1 home wins against Houston Dynamo and Sporting KC and a 2-1 victory at Colorado Rapids.

We can’t see either team keeping a clean sheet or under 2.5 goals being scored in Sunday’s match as both teams scored and over 2.5 goals were produced in five of Cincinnati’s and each of New York City’s last six matches. Cincinnati have scored seven goals and conceded thirteen during that six-game period and New York City have notched eleven goals and let in eleven in their last six matches.

New York City make the obvious choice as winners on Sunday but it’s unlikely the visitors will keep a clean sheet this weekend, even against struggling Cincinnati, as the visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home in their last eight attempts. That poor defensive record away from home for New York City stretches all the way back to May when they last kept a clean sheet during the win over LA Galaxy.

We’re confident that both teams will score and over 2.5 goals will be produced in Sunday’s match and have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 to New York City. The visitors are the form favourites and have that 5-2 win over Cincinnati a couple of months ago to use for added motivation. Cincinnati look set to finish bottom of the table now that they are eight points behind Columbus Crew and know there is work to be done in the close season if they want to be more competitive next year.
