FC Cincinnati vs New England for the Major League Soccer championship match on Sunday at Nippert Stadium.
Next Sunday, July 21st, 2019, FC Cincinnati and New England Revolution will play for Major League Soccer (USA). The game kick-off is scheduled for 23:00 at the Nippert Stadium (Cincinnati). The 12th ranked against the 8th in the table.
Cincinnati it’s probably the worst team in the entire MLS. They have lost 14 of their 21 games in the competition. The team also suffered the highest number of goals so far, 49, none of the opponent’s have yet reached 40.
New England Revolution
In excellent form, they are the only team at the conference that has not experienced defeat in the past five MLS games.
Clashes between the two teams
These two teams fought each other only twice.
The home team never won.
This is the first meeting between these clubs at this location.
The last time these two met, Cincinnati had a 0-2 away win.
Disregarding the positioning of New England, we have a confrontation between the best and the worst of the East. Cincinnati has every chance in the world to be garnished as MLS’s worst squad at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, New England showed the mindset of learning from mistakes. They have not started the championship on the right foot, but at the moment they are going strong with a series of impressive performances.
They were unbeaten in their last ten games in general and the last five away. The team also scored two or more goals in six of their previous eight games, and four on the last five away from home.
On the other hand, Cincinnati has lost 13 of their previous 17 matches and conceded goals in eight of their last eleven games.
Going against the statistics of the direct confrontations, I bet on the victory of New England.
