New York FC vs Houston Dynamo for Major League Soccer championship match on Friday at Yankee Stadium.
Next Friday, 9th August 2019, New York FC and Houston Dynamo face each other for a match for Major League Soccer (USA). The game has kick-off time for 00:00 at Yankee Stadium (New York).
New York FC, despite the number of losses accumulated in the recent past, still have the potential to win first place at the EAST conference. They have four games behind Philadelphia Union, the current group leader, with a difference of just seven points.
Also, City has the home advantage and host a team that has lost four of their last five league games. Besides, Houston is one of the worst teams in the entire championship competition and really is not in a position to face a titan like New York.
Clashes between the two teams
Five of the last six games have scored goals from both teams.
Houston has always conceded goals against this opponent.
100% of draws at this place had goals on both sides of the field.
The last time the two met at this location, the result was a 1-1 draw.
New York was unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 games and have won five of their last six as well. They have also scored three or more goals in all five of these games, scoring a combined score of 19-6 in the previous six games.
On the other hand, Houston has lost ten of their last 12 matches and have failed to score in the previous two meetings. They have also lost eight of their recent nine trips.
Also, Houston has conceded two or more goals in five of their last six away matches and haven’t scored in five of the previous eight.
As such, I expect a big win for the hosts with over 2.5 goals.
