New York City FC will look to return to winning ways when they travel to FC Cincinnati on Thursday at 1:30am (UK time).
The reigning MLS Cup champions were knocked off the top of the Eastern Conference with a 2-1 defeat away to the Philadelphia Union on Sunday — with their hosts replacing them in first. The Cityzens also crashed out of the US Open Cup with a 3-0 defeat to rivals New York Red Bulls last week. Prior to that, though, NYCFC had enjoyed an 11-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, however, they’ve not won since head coach Ronny Deila departed for Standard Liege.
After three years of taking home the wooden spoon, FC Cincinnati look genuinely capable of reaching the Playoffs. An off-season overhaul both on the pitch and off it has resulted in a competitive team pulling off eye-catching results; the latest being a 1-0 win over Orlando City on Friday that lifted Cincy to seventh in the East, above the Playoff line.
