  • Coach Troy Lesesne has a positive 2-0-1 record against New York City.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Cushing’s side is in pole position for victory

  • DRAW: +265 – 25.0%
  • AWAY: +210 – 31.5%

*These New York City vs DC United odds are subject to change

New York City have the home-field advantage and are rightfully being considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners, with a strong 43.5% win probability at +125. However, we fancy Christian Benteke and his colleagues, as they also have a solid enough 31.5% chance of getting the three points on the 21st of April.

DC United may have had the last laugh, but the overall head-to-head advantage is in favor of New York City.

New York City team news and form: Attack seems lost

Coach Nick Cushing really has to take a closer look at his attacking issues, as the only team with an attacking tally worse than New York City’s is New England Revolution who scored five goals this season. However, with seven goals scored throughout seven league games, New York City aren’t doing that much better either.

Predicted lineup: Freese (GK), Ilenic, Martins, Risa, O’Toole, Parks, Sands, Wolf, Rodriguez, Ojeda & Bakrar

DC United team news and form: Inconsistency from DC

The only constant connected with DC United is Christian Benteke. The rest are performing way too inconsistently these days. However, we still believe the visitors on the 21st of April will get a good result over New York City.

Predicted lineup: Bono (GK), McVey, Bartlet, Antley, Herrera, Klich, Hopkins, Dajome, Stroud, Benteke & Fletcher

Player to watch: Christian Benteke

When you outscore arguably the best player in history, you deserve a special shoutout in our New York City vs DC United prediction. Inter Miami’s Lionel Messi has five goals to his name, yes, but DC United’s Benteke is one step ahead of him right now.
