New York City FC vs Portland Timbers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

New York City were able to reduce the deficit to Toronto down to just six points after a 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City. Both teams had a decent number of chances in front of goal, but New York City were they deserved winners. Jack Harrison came up with an 84th minute goal in order to separate the two teams. Portland Timbers managed to take a point in an away game against Seattle Sounders after a 1-1 draw. Cristian Roldan capitalised on a scramble in the penalty box to come up with the opening goal in the 18th minute. Portland equalised just before half-time through a Diego Valeri penalty. Both teams had a reasonable number of chances to secure a win, which never came. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These two teams have met each other only twice in the MLS history. New York City are undefeated at home since May and the club has been able to win six out of the last seven home games. Portland are likely to miss a couple of key players due to injury, while the club has managed just three away wins in 2017. Portland have managed only one away win in the last seven. I would go with New York City to get a win.

New York City have scored 30 goals in 14 league games at the Yankee stadium. The team has scored over 1.5 goals in six out of the last seven home matches. Portland have conceded two goals on an average in the last six away games. I see excellent value in backing New York City to score over 1.5 goals.

New York City win – 17/20

New York City to score over 1.5 goals – 8/13

New York City FC saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Portland Timbers saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Portland Timbers have conceeded only 2 goals in their last 4 games against New York City FC

New York City FC Preview

The hope of finishing top of the Eastern conference is still alive for New York City, as Patrick Vieira’s team were able to get a crucial home win over Sporting Kansas City in the latest league game. New York City are unbeaten in the last five league matches and this impressive feat has helped the club open up a six-point advantage over third placed Chicago Fire. The return of David Villa will be watched keenly, as the striker suffered an injury during the international games. Villa is the top scorer at City with 19 league goals.

New York City FC Team News

Ronald Matarrita (toe), Ethan White (calf), Mikey Lopez (foot), Miguel Camargo (hip), Maxime Chanot (hernia), and Alexander Ring (toe) are unavailable for the game due to injuries, while David Villa (thigh) needs a late fitness test.

Portland Timbers Preview

Even though Portland once again failed to win an away match, manager Caleb Porter will be reasonably pleased with the outcome of the game against Seattle Sounders. A match against the form team in the MLS was going to be a major challenge, and Portland Timbers were struggling with just three away wins in 14 games this season. Diego Valeri is the club’s top scorer with 16 goals this season.

Portland Timbers Team News

Gbenga Arokoyo (Achilles tendon) and Chance Myers (ankle) are ruled out of the game. Marco Farfan (ankle), Liam Ridgewell (thigh), Fanendo Adi (hamstring), and Jake Gleeson (hamstring) are the players doubtful for the game.
