New York City FC vs FC Cincinnati, Thursday’s Major League Soccer regular season game.
New York City
The owners of the house completed two months without losing. The last time they left the field without scoring was in the March 29 game against Toronto FC in Canada, where they were beaten 4-0.
Drawing 2-2 with the Columbus Crew on Saturday, June 1, they extended their unbeaten run to nine games. With 20 points they occupy the sixth position in the leaderboard in the Eastern Conference.
A leader in MLS draws, including both conference teams, New York City is eight points behind the Philadelphia Union, first placed among Eastern teams. In comparison to Orlando City, eighth and first team out of the playoffs, they have a two points lead.
At the same time that New York City maintained their unbeaten record, Cincinnati so far only clinched a win and left the field defeated eight times. The most recent failure on this list was added on Saturday, June 1.
The MLS rookie team lost 3-1 away to Colorado Rapids, making it the worst team in the 2019 edition of the most important football league in the United States.
With 11 points is the twelfth – last – place of the Eastern Conference. They have seven points less than Toronto FC, who is seventh, last in the playoffs qualifying zone.
As a visitor, they fought for 27 points and accumulated only four, scoring six goals and conceded 19. The situation caused the resignation of South African coach Alan Koach in early May. But so far the team has not found a substitute. The Frenchman Yoan Dammet is still in charge of the position.
The prognostic in the draw is the best guessing option for this Thursday’s MLS regular season game.
