New England Rev. vs New York City FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

New England Revolution were able to manage a late 2-1 win over Colorado Rapids to pick up the first win of the MLS 2018 campaign. Diego Fagundez opened his account for the campaign – and also for the match – with a 48th-minute goal. The Rapids were level when substitute Niki Jackson scored from a header. His 66th-minute goal came just 12 minutes after Jack Price had missed a penalty for the Rapids. However, a late free-kick from Chris Tierney ensured a win for Brad Friedel’s men. New York City picked up a comfortable 2-0 win over Orlando City at home. The home team capitalised on two major errors from Orlando to score through Ismael Tajouri and Maximiliano Moralez in the second half.

Betting Tips and Predictions

New York City have made a spirited start to the 2018 league campaign with three consecutive wins. Patrick Vieira’s team are the only outfit with a 100% record so far. Even though the Revolution did manage a first win of the season, the team could have easily dropped more points in only their second match under Brad Friedel. New York City are impressive and I would back a win for the team.

Patrick Vieira’s team have been quite disciplined at the back – conceding just one goal in three games. Meanwhile, New England Revolution have scored from open play only once in two matches this season. Despite witnessing several high-scoring matches between these two clubs in the past, I would back under 2.5 goals in this game.

New England Rev. Preview

The late win over Colorado Rapids certainly lifts the mood around New England Revolution. Brad Friedel may be one of the top players to have represented the US national team, but he is quite inexperienced as a manager. Hence, there was scepticism surrounding the former Tottenham goalkeeper when he was announced as the new manager of the Revolution. The first win of the season may have carried an element of good fortune, as the Revolution scored with their only shots on target in the 90 minutes. However, the club remain at the Gillette stadium for three out of the next four league matches.

New England Rev. Team News

The Revolution will be without Cody Cropper (illness), Gabriel Somi (head), and Isaac Angking (illness) due to injuries. Manager Brad Friedel will also be without Krisztian Nemeth due to international call-ups.

New York City FC Preview

New York City had to rely on mistakes from Orlando City in order to get the latest win, but there is little doubt that the club are favourites for the MLS Cup title. City have now picked up three consecutive league wins and have conceded just one goal in the process. However, the stern tests for Patrick Vieira and his team begin now, as the team will be on the road in four out of the next five matches. Maximiliano Moralez is the top scorer with two goals in three games.

New York City FC Team News

Ronald Matarrita, Rodney Wallace, and Alexander Ring are unavailable due to international action. Manager Patrick Vieira will also be without David Villa (calf), Anton Tinnerholm (ankle), Ronald Matarrita (hamstring), and Jo Inge Berget (thigh) due to injuries.
