FC Cincinnati are still in big trouble, and they are propping up the Eastern Conference alongside Columbus Crew. However, they are showing some signs of life, and have scored five goals in their last two MLS matches. It’s been the perfect response to their 7-1 hammering, and although they are still defensively fragile, they do at least have an attacking threat. Fanendo Adi was the hero at the weekend, and they do seem to be gradually gaining confidence in the final third.
DC United sit in sixth, and they are having a decent season however their recent form is a bit of a concern. They have won just two of their last ten in all competitions, and both of those victories have come by single goal margins at Audi Field. They haven’t won any of their last five away games, and they although they are fancied by many to pick up three points in this clash, they aren’t playing with any kind of consistency at the moment.
It’s hard to pick these apart, and the bookies are also finding it tricky. FC Cincinnati have only picked up 17 points so far, although six of those have come in the last couple of matches. They are finding form, and will be helped by having home advantage in this tie. They are narrow favourites at 6/4, with DC United available at 7/4.
However, it could be a pretty even contest, and DC United have drawn five of their last ten games. The draw looks like the obvious way to go. FC Cincinnati have an unbeaten run to cling onto, and they could make it three games without defeat here.
Most of DC United’s recent games have been decided by fine margins, and unless they can find their attacking verve once again, they may not be able to get over the line here.
FC Cincinnati haven’t kept a clean sheet in 18 games, whilst DC United have conceded in each of their last three matches. This won’t be one for defensive purists. Both Teams to Score? Yes is short enough at 4/7.
The 1-1 scoreline looks like a decent bet, and it’s the favourite in the correct score market. However, it still holds some value at 24/5.
