New York City/New York City

New York City have a sensational record against Cincinnati where they have been able to lead at half-time and full-time in all three of their home encounters against this opposition. Cincinnati definitely showed a lack of adventure and quality in their opening match against Nashville. However, they might struggle at the Yankee Stadium just like in the past.

Total goals over 2.5

This has been a high-scoring fixture going by historical records. The 2-1 win for City in the September 2020 meeting is the only low scoring game and it still ended up with over 2.5 goals. Both teams were involved in a goal fest on the opening day. There could be more of the same.

Valentin Castellanos to score anytime

Castellanos had a busy match against DC United. The striker ended up having a goal to his name from four shots at goal. The 22-year-old is expected to have more opportunities against Cincinnati. Castellanos was eager to have a shot even from outside the box. He presents a real threat for Cincinnati after having scored two goals against this opponent in the past.

New York City vs Cincinnati: Match Preview

New York City

Ronny Deila is keen on guiding New York City to the first win of the season. Despite taking the lead against DC United, New York City were unable to stop the opposition from taking control. The team failed to create overloads and interesting transitional phases as they were swept away by DC United. The home advantage should help the team in reducing the problem. The team does have a lengthy injury list with Heber, Cody Mizell, Gedion Zelalem, Justin Haak, Thiago Andrade, and Tony Rocha unavailable.

Cincinnati

The point from the opening match will be seen in a positive fashion by Jaap Staam. Yet, the defensive issues of the team were highlighted in the game. The former Feyenoord manager will be reasonably happy with his team getting two goals. However, pre-season form has not been great and Cincinnati need to pick up a victory soon. Franko Kovacevic, Maikel van der Werff, and Zico Bailey are unavailable due to injuries.
