The Seattle Sounders will be at home at CenturyLink Field this weekend as they get ready to play their next game in the MLS. The Sounders will face New York City FC in a game which both teams will look to win. There are lots of top players on display in this game so we should expect to witness some top quality football.
New York City FC are a team that have looked very dominant all season. The team is currently second on the Eastern Conference and will be confident that they can make it deep into playoffs at the end of the season. This team is blessed with many top players with the likes of David Villa playing for the side. The former Spanish international has been amazing and has got his team playing well. This will be a tough game for the side from the Big Apple since they will have to travel a long way from home and that usually causes fatigue. In addition to that, NYCFC played against Orlando City on Thursday so the player won’t have much time to rest and recover.
As far as Seattle are concerned, they need to win at home. The Sounders are close to the bottom of the Western Conference and need to improve if they wish to move up the ladder. That being said, the Seattle Sounders are unbeaten in their last 5 MLS games so the team is in good form. This will be a big test for the home side since NYCFC are a top team and it will be interesting to see how the Sounders react.
While Seattle have been in good form and are at home, I am still going to predict that New York City FC will win. The visitors are a class above their opposition and I don’t see a result where they fail to win this game.
