Our prediction for this MLS match:
DC United and New York City go head to head at Audi Field in what is expected to be an interesting MLS game. The capital club aim to put an end to their six-game winless run and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Blue Pigeons. Despite failing to find the net in a 3-0 loss to Austin, Christian Benteke will be the man to watch in the home team, while all Mohanad Jeahze, Tyler Miller, and Martin Rodriguez are out of contention with injuries.
New York City, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Messi-less Inter Miami. The Blue Pigeons are eager to climb to the playoffs berth and given DC United’s poor display in their last league match, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team. Midfielder Maxi Moralez should be the only absentee in the away team.
