These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your bet slip before confirming.

New York City Win

Historically, NYC have gotten the better of DC, winning 50% of the games when both teams have faced each other. Recent form also backs the Boys in Blue as they won more than twice as many games as DC in the regular season. DC also have a new coach and this will be his first game in the dugout. DC’s lack of familiarity with the new coach’s system will work against them in a game that was already going to be difficult.

Halftime/ Full time: New York City/ New York City

DC struggled badly last year, scoring only 1.08 goals per game while conceding 1.78 per game. Hence, why the new coach was appointed. NYC, on the other hand, scored 1.61 goals per game and conceded 1.08 per game. NYC have the better attack and defence, and will likely make that dominance count from the first whistle.

Double Chance: Draw or New York City

NYC are unbeaten in the last 5 games against DC, with 3 wins and 2 draws for the East Coast team. 71.4% of their overall meetings have ended in either NYC victorious or a tie between the teams. Furthermore, DC only won 5 out of 23 games last season whilst NYC made the playoffs. The chances of DC winning are quite slim as a result.

DC United vs New York City Preview and Team News

DC United

DC United’s squad coming into the new season is fully fit for the most part, with only rotation centre-back Steven Birnbaum expected to be out with an ankle injury. DC are managed by Hernan Losada, who previously managed Belgian team Beerschot for 2 years. Appointed in January 2021, this will be his first competitive game in charge of DC United.

New York City

Deila has been in charge since 2020, and has a win percentage of 53.85% from over 25 games in charge. 22-year-old Argentine forward Valentin Castellano will be vital to how NYCFC start the season, as he had 9 goals involvements last season and often carried the team forward.
