Our prediction for this MLS match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Los Angeles FC, New York City will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on New England Revolution at their Yankee Stadium. New York City quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Columbus Crew, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. The Pigeons aim to melt New England’s advantage in the standings, but beating the in-form Revs is easier said than done.
New York City defender Alexander Callens is on international duty with Peru, while Acevedo Tabarez is banned for the match. New England Revolution are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. In their last encounter in the Major League Soccer the two teams played out a 2-2 draw, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on BTTS.
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.
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.
