Our prediction for this MLS match:
New England will be looking to put an end to their five-game winless run in the Major League Soccer when they host New York City on Sunday evening. The Revs are one win away from booking their place in the MLS play-offs and we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in the penultimate game of the season. New England showed character in a 2-2 draw with Portland Timbers in midweek, with the team scoring two late goals, but beating high-flying New York City is easier said than done.
Domenec Torrent’s troops rolled over Atlanta United 4-1 to clinch top position in the Eastern Conference, with Romania international Alexandru Mitrita scoring a hat-trick. New York City aim to finish the regular season in style, but seeing that both teams would be happy with one point from Sunday’s football match, there is a big value in betting on draw.
