Our prediction for this MLS match:
New York City and Montreal Impact square off against each other at Yankee Stadium on Sunday morning. New York City failed to impress in a 3-1 loss at Columbus Crew, with the team extending their winless run in the league to three games. The hosts aim to retain their spot in top six, and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Heber and Zelalem remain in the recovery room for the hosts, while Tayvon Gray is a major doubt after being tested positive for coronavirus.
Montreal Impact, on the other hand, did well to make amends for back-to-back losses to Philadelphia Union and New England Revolution. The Canadian outfit regained a much-needed confidence, but given the importance of Sunday’s game for New York City, home win should be considered. A man to watch in the away team will be former Barca ace Bojan Krkic.
Highlighted Player (Alexandru Mitrita):
Italian Serie A is a Romanian footballer who is well known for his height. The 199-cm attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, was born in Craiova on February 8, 1995 and he started his youth career at Turnu Severin.
In 2012 he moved to fellow Romanian club Viitorul Constanta and in 2015 he signed a deal with Italian side Pescara. After scoring 2 goals in 34 appearances for the Dolphins, he returned to Romania, signing a contract with Universitatea Craiova. Alexandru Mitrita was on New York City’s radar during the 2017/2018 season and seeing that he scored 18 goals in the national championship, the chiefs of the MLS club decided to sign him in 2019.
The Romanian footballer made his MLS soccer debut in a 2-2 draw with Orlando City, but he failed to find the net. Alexandru Mitrita’s preferred foot is right, but he often plays as a left winger.
