Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a stunning purple patch, New England will make the trip to the Yankee Stadium when they face off against NYCFC in the early hours of Sunday.

Starting with the hosts, while New York might find themselves still sat in pole position to clinch another Final Series spot this season, they do have the feel of a side seeking some stability. Failing to build off of their welcomed 2-0 win against Inter Milan earlier in the month, The Light Blues were last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss at the hands of Philadelphia Union last weekend. With just a single win to their name from any of their last five matchups across all formats, Head Coach Ronny Deila will also be concerned by his side’s worrying record against Sunday’s opponents. Suffering an action-packed 3-2 defeat when they welcomed New England to Yankee Stadium on June 20th, they have been hit with back-to-back MLS defeats against The Revs. It’s also worth highlighting NYCFC have won just a pair of their previous nine straight meetings against the Eastern Conference heavyweights.

As for the visitors, while New York might be a side seeking some recent stability, New England have only continued on what has been a stellar purple patch. Storming their way to the Eastern Conference title and already holding a remarkable 15-point buffer at the top of the table, The Revs were last seen laying down yet another marker. Landing a thumping 4-1 win against Cincinnati on home soil, Head Coach Bruce Arena finds the mood in his camp at a red-hot high. Now enjoying a four-match winning run and showing no signs of slowing down, it’s also worth noting that New England have collected a staggering 25 points from just their last nine MLS contests. Holding what is an eye-catching record against Sunday’s opponents, a double chance certainly appear at attractive odds here.
