DC United vs New York City FC Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

DC United managed a first win of the 2017 MLS season after a close fought 2-1 win over Philadelphia Union. DC United took advantage of Fabinho’s error to score in the 18th minute through Jose Ortiz. Luciano Acosta doubled the home team’s advantage through a penalty in the 27th minute. Philadelphia had several long-range efforts in the second half. While they equalised through Charles Sapong in the 71st minute, there was not to be an equaliser. New York City showed delightful form and managed a 2-1 win over San Jose Earthquakes. Marco Urena gave a lead for San Jose, but New York City managed to win thanks to goals from Jack Harrison and Thomas McNamara. David Villa played a crucial role in the build-up to both goals.

Betting Tips and Predictions

New York City will take plenty of confidence from the 4-0 win over DC United less than a month ago. DC United might have failed to score for a fourth consecutive game had it not been for the deflected goal and the penalty against Philadelphia. Their attack still suffers from a lack of trust going forward. There have been only three meetings between the two teams at the RFK Stadium with New York City managing only one win and DC United securing two wins. I would back DC United for a win. DC United have failed to score in three out of the four games. New York City have not allowed opponents to score over 1.5 goals. I would back DC United to score under 1.5 goals.

DC United win – 10/11

DC United under 1.5 goals – 1/1

DC United Preview

DC United finally managed to end a horrible start to the season following the win over Philadelphia. Pressure is on the club to take the maximum points from the next home game against New York City, as DC United will be on the road for the next three matches. The win against Philadelphia also saw the team score their first goals of the campaign, as they had failed to score in the first three. Still, it was not a convincing performance, as DC United had to rely on a heavily deflected effort and a penalty in order to score the goals against Philadelphia.

New York City Preview

New York City have managed to put behind the opening day loss against Orlando City, but manager Patrick Vieira may be disappointed with his team not managing three home wins. The draw against Montreal Impact puts pressure on the team to take away points, and the club are on the road in three out of the next four games. Even though striker David Villa has failed to score in three out of the four games, he has demonstrated plenty of quality to help his teammates. New York City’s only clean sheet of the season was against DC United.
