Our prediction for this MLS match:
Audi Field will host Monday’s football game between DC United and New York City. The capital club aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over New York Red Bulls where Erik Sorga scored the winner in the eighth minute of the stoppage time. The talented Estonia international opened his goal-scoring account in style, and, no doubt, he is pushing for a start. New York City, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the Major League Soccer.
The Pigeons have found their best form of late, and seeing that DC United were more than fortunate to beat the Metros in their last league match, we are tempted to put our money on Ronny Deila’s men. Brazil international Heber, who found the net in the 2-0 win over New England Revolution, is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Felipe):
Felipe Campanholi Martins is a Brazilian footballer who was born on September 30, 1990 in Engenheiro Beltrao. After playing for the likes of PSTC-Londrina, Atletico Catarinense and Campo Grande during his youth career, he started his senior career at Padova.
The Brazilian midfielder appeared in no more than four league matches for the Italian club and in 2009 he moved to Switzerland, signing a deal with FC Winterthur. At the end of the season he joined fellow Swiss Super League club Lugano and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. In the winter of 2011 Felipe moved to MLS, signing a deal with expansion team Montreal Impact.
He scored his first MLS goal in a 2-0 win over Sporting Kansas City on May 5, 2012 and he has been playing an important role in the team ever since. Felipe has yet to represent Brazil at senior level, but he could play for Canada national team in the future as he applied for permanent residency.
