New York City FC look for another big win after winning three of their last six matches. New York City FC has scored 24 goals in 20 matches and has scored six goals in their last three matches. David Villa leads New York with 10 goals, Kwadwo Poku has three assists and Patrick Mullins has 22 shot attempts. Defensively, New York City FC has pitched three shutouts and has allowed two or more goals in seven matches. Josh Saunders has come away with 64 saves and has allowed five goals in his last two matches. Orlando City FC has come away with points in four of their last five home MLS matches and is 1-1-3 during that span overall.
The last time these teams met was back in March, and it resulted in a 1-1 draw. That was the only time these two teams have played, and this will be the second of three scheduled meetings this season.
New York City has been tough to beat at home and could certainly use the three points to get back in the Eastern Conference race. I like the home team to pickup the rare win.
