New York City FC vs Seattle Sounders FC Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

New York City come into the game on the back of a first win in three matches, as they beat Philadelphia Union 2-1 at the Yankee stadium. Maxime Chanot and Alexandre Callens bagged two late goals against Philadelphia Union in the previous outing, as they came from a goal down to clinch all three points. Meanwhile, their Western Conference counterparts Seattle Sounders are up to sixth in their standings following a hard-earned 1-0 victory over Houston Dynamo. Will Bruin notched the only goal of the game in the 69th minute.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Seattle Sounders have been in excellent form over the last few weeks, but all the three victories for the club in the last five games have been at the CenturyLink Field. The club has suffered three consecutive home defeats while managing to score just one goal. New York City may have been on a poor run, but the club has managed 3 wins in the last five home games. I would consider the backing New York City due to the home advantage.

The last five home matches for New York City and the five away matches for Seattle Sounders have all witnessed more than 2.5 goals. The last meeting between the two teams at the Yankee stadium produced over 3.5 goals. Hence, I would back over 2.5 goals in this game.

New York City win – 4/5

New York City FC Preview

New York City FC have won just two of their last five outings, and they will come into the MLS game following a US Open Cup tie against cross-city rivals New York Red Bulls. As rumours continue to grow about the future of manager Patrick Vieira, the club will be hoping that such rumours do not affect the performances. City have managed just two wins in the last six league matches, but the club continue to remain close to the top two places of the Eastern conference. World Cup winner David Villa is New York’s top-scorer with eight goals this term.

 

New York City FC Team News

New York City FC are likely to be without Khiry Shelton (muscle injury) and Andrea Pirlo (knee injury) both of whom have failed to make the match day squad in recent games.

 

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

Seattle Sounders have three wins and two draws in their previous five outings. After a poor start to the season, the club are finally showing signs of coming good. Manager Brian Schmetzer will not only be pleased with a run of three wins in the last four league matches, but he would also be extremely happy with the club keeping a clean sheet in all these three victories. The good run of form has propelled Seattle Sounders into the play-off places, and even the top two positions suddenly do not look out of reach. Clint Dempsey is the top scorer with four league goals.

 

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Seattle Sounders are not suffering from any suspensions, but Brian Schmetzer will be without midfielder Henry Wingo (sprained ankle).
