Our prediction for this MLS match:
New England Revolution play host to Cincinnati at their Gillette Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Sunday’s program. The Revs are eager to retain top position in Eastern Conference and they must be high on confidence following a 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City. Giacomo Vrioni scored a brace in the last league match and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. All Thomas McNamara, Nacho Gil, Maciel, and Jacob Jackson should miss out with injuries for the home team.
Cincinnati, meanwhile, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Portland Timbers, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against New England. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Forward Yuya Kubo should be the only absentee in the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Luciano Acosta):
Luciano Acosta is a professional footballer who plays for DC United as an attacking midfielder. Acosta was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on May 31, 1994 and he started his senior career at his hometown club Boca Juniors. After scoring 2 goals in 25 appearances for the famous Argentine club, the 160-cm tall footballer joined Estudiantes on loan in 2016.
In 2017 he moved to DC United and he has been playing for the MlS club ever since. Luciano Acosta impressed in the 2018 season, with the Argentina international scoring 10 goals, while providing 15 assists for his teammates in the process. Despite producing thrilling showings in the 2018 MLS campaign, he has yet to earn a call-up for the Argentina national football team.
Acosta’s main position is attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both second striker and centre forward as well. He has a contract with DC United which should expire on December 31, 2019 and his preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (New England Revolution):
Unlike famous NFL club New England Patriots, the Revolution have yet to win the domestic trophy. New England participated five times in the MLS Cup final, but they were more than fortunate not to lift the silverware. The Revs played their last final in 2014, with the team losing to LA Galaxy in the title game at StubHub Center. New England Revolution, though, clinched the North American SuperLiga trophy in 2008 and that is considered as the club’s biggest success.
It has to be noted that the Revs defeated Houston Dynamo on penalties in the final of the tournament. New England Revolution were founded in 1994 and Gillette Stadium is the home ground of the club. Legendary defender Alexi Lalas played for the Revolution (1996-1997) and he scored three goals for the Gillette Stadium outfit. Fellow USA ace Clint Dempsey was part of the team as well and you should know that he netted 25 goals in 71 league appearances for the club.
