With the growing action of football in North America, one of the top leagues forming now is the Major League Soccer with stars from all over the world including Nigeria, Ivory Coast, England, Spain, Italy, Mexico, Argentina, Ecuador, Ireland all finding their way to make money as well as add the MLS title to their winning medals. The league is often an entertaining one, with lots of stunning goals and exciting action to keep all entertained.
Kansas City come into this game against sitting in mid-table with a lot of goals flowing their way and are expected to put on a solid performance at home coming into this encounter. The simple for Kansas has been their back of conceding a lot of goals as has been seen by the 7 they conceded in the last 3 games alone. Overall they have conceded 22 goals in the 19 games played in the season, and their poor defensive record has seen them sitting in mid-table. Englishman Dom Dwyer has been their top scorer with 8 goals, but his consistency in front of target leaves a lot to be desired for the home side.
New York City have been in cracking form winning 4 games on the trot now as the full team is back to fitness and playing well together. They have now beaten New England and Seattle away from home in their last encounters by working hard on the defensive end keeping 3 clean sheets on the trot. David Villa has returned to some great form, leading all scorers in the MLS with 12 goals in 18 games. He has now found the back of the net for New York in 4 out of the last 6 games for them, and his form is vital to the team succeeding. His other international team mate Frank Lampard has now regained his fitness and scored in 3 out of the last 4 games. McNamara and Pirlo have been doing the creative work with 11 assists between them to keep chances coming for New York.
On Paper, you could see New York winning this game, but since they are the away side, there is always that risk that the home side might put in an extra effort on the defensive end to keep things tight. In this case, I am going for New York City FC or Draw Double Chance in this encounter.
