New York City to defeat DC United comfortably

On Saturday night, New York City FC host DC United in the Eastern Conference of MLS, as the home side look to move closer to the top two.

New York City are currently third-place in the Eastern Conference, six points behind the automatic play-off spots. The team from the Big Apple have been on a poor recent run of form that has seen them win just one of their last seven MLS outings. In fact, the home side has lost three of their last four games in the US top-flight.

Their recent MLS games have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four league outings.

City have failed to win in their last three MLS games on home soil. However, they have been hard to beat on their own patch of late, suffering just one defeat in 14 outings in MLS.

The home side has been prolific in their recent home league outings, scoring at least two goals in 12 of their last 17 outings in US top-flight.

DC United are six points outside the play-off spots but have played fewer games than the teams around them. United’s recent MLS form has been mixed, a 3-1 win over Atlanta United last time out ended a two-game losing run though.

The visitor’s recent away record is woeful, as they have failed to win in their last eight games on the road. In fact, United have won just two of their last 27 games on their travels in MLS.

One of DC’s main problems on their travels of late has been conceding goals, as they have conceded at least two goals in five of their last seven away games in the US top-flight. The visitor’s generosity at the back has contributed to both teams scoring in 14 of their last 18 MLS outings.

Forebet predicts that the home side will record a comfortable victory in a high scoring encounter.
