FC Cincinatti will be hoping to bounce back here following the 0-1 MLS losing effort in their last game against Toronto FC.
In that game, FC Cincinatti managed 49% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 1 on target. Toronto FC had 9 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Mullins (29') was the scorer for Toronto FC.
A recurring characteristic of more recent FC Cincinatti games is the number of nil scores.
From their previous 6 clashes before this one, in as many as 6 of them a wager on BTTS would have been a loser.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Chicago Fire in MLS competition, D.C. United will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, D.C. United had 53% possession and 14 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Chicago Fire got 7 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Sapong (3'), Sekulić (45') and Bornstein (56' Own goal) scored for Chicago Fire.
The stats don’t lie, and D.C. United have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 15 goals in total. In defence, Black-and-Red seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. Nonetheless, we’ll just have to find out whether such a trend might continue on in this upcoming match or not.
Team News: FC Cincinatti
FC Cincinatti boss Jaap Stam has a full complement, with no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash with a completely injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: D.C. United
DC United boss Ben Olsen has multiple availability issues to deal with. Paul Arriola (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Felipe Martins (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) are not able to play.
We’re of the opinion that D.C. United are capable enough to score a goal against this FC Cincinatti lineup, but that probably won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re going for a 2-1 win for FC Cincinatti when all is said and done. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
