Reason For New York City vs Philadelphia Union Predictions

  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between these two clubs.
  • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Philadelphia Union’s last five competitive and non-competitive matches.
  • New York City have won six of their last seven games against Philadelphia Union.

The MLS is Back Tournament is a one-off competition that marks the return of the MLS following the recent pandemic and will feature 25 of the 26 Eastern and Western Conference sides, with FC Dallas choosing to withdraw from the behind closed doors competition. The competition will take place from July 8th to August 11th with the teams split into six groups, A-F, and 16 of the clubs will then progress through to a knockout stage.

Our prediction for over 2.5 goals being scored this Thursday is based largely on the recent history between these two clubs and Philadelphia Union’s results heading into the start of this one-off tournament. Games between these two clubs so often produce plenty of goalmouth action with both teams scoring in each of the pairs’ last four encounters.

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of the last six meetings between these two clubs, with six goals being netted when New York City played host to Philadelphia Union back in June 2019. New York City won 5-3 against San Carlos in February and four of Philadelphia Union’s last five matches produced at least three goals, with six being netted in their 3-3 draw with LAFC in March’s MLS clash.

As for a final scoreline, we’re predicting a 2-1 win for New York City as they have won six of their last seven matches against Philadelphia Union. Neither side is in the best of form but New York City have won two of their last five matches and edge the form guide. New York City have scored two or more goals against Philadelphia in six of the pairs’ last seven encounters and Philadelphia Union have scored exactly one goal in four of those six matches.
