Will FC Cincinnati be able to muster up the finesse to chip away at New York’s defense, or will New York FC continue dominating the league? FC Cincinnati has had an average run so far for the team, barely holding their own at sixth place in the Eastern Conference with seven wins, two draws, and seven losses and leading them to 23 points, just below Montréal’s fifth place. In their last 10 games, they won five, tied one, and conceded four games. Despite FC Cincinnati's four-game win streak back in May, they have not been able to keep that same momentum going. However, their last game against Orlando City was a close match but exciting win for the team, and despite slightly less possession of the ball, they fought their way to a 1-0 victory. Vasquez is the leading scorer for the Orange and Blue with eight goals and three assists and has led the team to sixth in the Eastern Conference with his offensive prowess. He holds a leading position in goals, shots on goal, and assists. Meanwhile, Celentano has a leading Clean Sheet of seven. Looking at New York FC, the team has done outstandingly this season, placing first in the Eastern Conference with an impressive eight wins, three draws, and a mere three losses. However, their seven-game win streak ended earlier this week to the New York Red Bulls in the United States Open Cup with a disappointing 3-0, possibly due to the recent change in management from Ronny Deila to assistant manager Nick Cushing. However, the player Cincinnati needs to watch out for this upcoming match is Castellanos, the Pigeons leading scorer with seven goals, one assist, and 17 shots on goal. Meanwhile, Rodriguez leads with five assists, and Johnson holds a clean sheet of 21. Despite the change in management and the slow down of their winning streak, New York FC still holds a strong and talented team that definitely has the potential to outmatch FC Cincinnati during the game this Thursday. Thus, the odds are in favor of the New York team. 7:30 AM (PST), Thursday, June 30, 2022. TQL Stadium, Cincinnati, USA. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
