Tip Reasoning

A win for New York City on Thursday could send them into the top four of the Eastern Conference, while three points for Seattle Sounders might be enough to push them into the top two of the Western Conference table. However, it is the home side that head into the game in the midst of an impressive thirteen game unbeaten run in league and cup which makes New York City the favourites to claim a win on Thursday, especially as their guests have lost four of their last five matches.

New York City and Philadelphia Union played out a six-goal thriller at the Yankee Stadium last time out, where despite going behind twice the hosts fought back to claim all three points. Philadelphia Union took the lead in the seventh minute but a penalty from Moralez brought the teams level in the twenty-third minute. The visitors retook the lead on the half-hour mark and lead at the interval, but another Moralez penalty levelled the scores once again. Castellanos scored a brace in space of seven second-half minutes to seal a 4-2 win for New York City and keep his teams impressive run of form going.

Seattle Sounders went into their home game against Vancouver Whitecaps having lost their last four matches but you couldn’t tell as the hosts controlled the first half despite failing to score. It was the same story in the second period as Seattle Sounders created the chances but the game looked like it was going to end goalless, until deep into stoppage time when Dutch defender Leerdam scored to end Seattle Sounders’ losing streak and claim a deserved 1-0 win for the hosts.

The head to head record between these two clubs and both teams form and performances over the last six weeks suggests that New York City will win on Thursday and that over 2.5 goals will be scored in the process. New York City won their last home game against Seattle Sounders 2-1 back in 2017 and three of the pairs four encounters have produced over 2.5 goals. Each of New York City’s last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals, while four of Seattle Sounders’ last five matches have also seen over 2.5 goals scored. New York City have won four of their last five matches and Seattle Sounders have lost four of their last five in all competitions. The hosts are unbeaten in their last thirteen games in league and cup, and that’s why we’re backing New York City to win 3-1 on Thursday.

Heber top scores for the hosts with six MLS goals this season but could miss out on Thursday due to injury, while Ruidiaz leads the way for Seattle Sounders with six league goals but won’t feature due to international commitments with Peru. We’re confident that New York City will win and over 2.5 goals will be scored on Thursday, and have predicted a 3-1 final score. The hosts are enjoying a fine run of form right now and matches between these two clubs tend to produce at least three goals. Seattle Sounders have performed well this season but they have struggled more than others with the loss of players to international duty.
