Austin to Win
At the end of the last season, Cincinnati finished in the last position in the Eastern Conference of the MLS while Austin finished semi-last in the Eastern Conference. It is a battle of the weaker teams at the start of the season. We expect the travel distance to play a role and Cincinnati to lose the game with a 1:0 result.
Over 2.5 Goals
Cincinnati had the worst defense in the Eastern Conference of the MLS last season. The team conceded a total of 74 goals in 34 games. Meanwhile, Austin had one of the worst defenses in the Western Conference as well. The team allowed 56 goals in 34 games.
The two squads are looking refreshed and ready for renewing the battle in the MLS
The only injury issue for the home side is a minor one – Danny Hoesen will be unavailable in attack but Maximiliano Urruti is more than capable of doing the job well as he is expected to be the key player in attack for the team during this season. We believe the two key players for Austin will be Diego Fagundez (with 7 goals last season) and the most expensive player for the team – Sebastian Driussi (with 5 goals last season).
John Nelson will miss the game due to injury but the left-back position is secured as Ronald Matarrita is expected to start in that position. Cincinnati didn’t lose in the pre-season friendlies but the team also didn’t record a single clean sheet. We believe Kenneth Vermeer will concede at least 1 goal in the game against Austin.
