Our football match prediction:
New England Revolution play host to New York City at their Gillette Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. The Revs are seven points behind the play-offs berth and, no doubt, they are eager to start a new winning run in MLS. Following a heavy 6-1 loss to Orlando City, New England played out a goalless draw with Atlanta United in their last league match and it has to be noted that they are undefeated in previous seven home games. New York City aim to retain their spot in top two in the Eastern Conference and they are widely expected to extend their unbeaten run in the Major League Soccer to five games. Seeing that the Revs are tough to beat at home, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Sunday’s football match. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be David Villa, who has netted 20 goals in the MLS so far this season.
