New York City FC: Let's Make it Four
Returning to action from their rivalry meeting with New York Red Bulls last weekend, the high-flying New York City FC will be brimming with confidence after handing their Empire State counterparts a 1-0 loss inside the Red Bull Arena. Three consecutive successes have seen NYFC take nine points from a possible nine, moving their Eastern Conference table position to a mere one point behind the league leaders Philadelphia with a game in hand.
No other team in the MLS Eastern Conference has scored more goals than NYFC this term, and besides Philadelphia, no other team has conceded fewer goals. But when Nick Cushing's squad handed the Red Bulls a losing ninety minutes last weekend, their quest for the top spot became that much sweeter.
It probably wasn't the best timing to face La Liga giants Barcelona in a midweek friendly at the DRV PNK Stadium, but Inter Miami did, and it wasn't pretty. A 6-0 dismantling saw Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ralphinha, Ansu Fati, Gavi, Memphis Depay, and Ousmane all receive a taste of the Miami back net as Phil Neville's men could do nothing but sit back and take a beating.
This midweek clash comes at a time when Miami is vying for the final playoff position in the MLS Eastern Conference. Although they took three points from Charlotte in their previous domestic outing, they're now faced with the most critical period of their season schedule in pursuit of playoff glory.
Unfortunately for the Miami faithful, capturing those crucial two points to obtain the 8th-placed league position won't come easy this weekend. NYFC awaits Miami's arrival, and the Big Apples starting eleven will take solace in knowing they've won the previous four meetings with a combined score of 9-3. In addition to their historical record against Miami, NYFC boasts an impeccable home form this term as all signs point towards a challenging weekend for the visitors.
To make matters even worse, Miami boasts the lowest number of goals scored away from home this season. So, when they travel to New York on Saturday, they'll be required to level up their attacking prowess to stand a chance at snapping a seven-game winless streak away from home.
Final Thoughts | MLS Betting Odds
The betting odds slightly favor the home side, and you cannot argue with this stance. NYFC has been on a tear in recent months, especially on home turf, where they've maintained a 12-game unbeaten streak.
It should be a routine victory for the home side as New York City FC edge closer to dampening the MLS title hopes in Philly.
