Our prediction for this MLS match:
MAPFRE Stadium will host Monday’s football game between Columbus Crew and New York City. Columbus Crew aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Montreal Impact and Cincinnati, but given their anything but good form, we do not believe that home win should be considered. The likes of Nagbe, Zelarayan, and Wormgoor are sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Francis is unlikely to feature after he was tested positive for coronavirus.
New York City, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Orlando City in their last league match. The likes of Heber, Moralez, and Zelalem remain in the recovery room for the visitors, but they are surely capable of grabbing something from the game against the out-of-sorts host. A close encounter is on the cards at MAPFRE Stadium, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
