14 wins, 9 draws and 11 defeats: those indicators that allowed New York City FC to score 51 points and occupy the 8th place in MLS. On average, they score 1.1 away goals, but unfortunately, it is not enough to achieve maximum results. Their opponent should be as concentrated as possible between 46-60 minutes, as at this moment New York City FC has already scored 9 goals. And they are more attentive after 60-75 minutes, as they conceded 16 goals during this period of time. Let's see what else they can show us in this match.
3:16 PMa month ago


So far in the MLS thanks to their responsible approach Philadelphia Union won 14 matches, lost 8 and drew 12, therefore, the fact that after 34 matches they are now among the leaders of the championship is not surprising at all. Their high position is also explained by the goal statistics: 1.4 goals scored and 1 conceded on average per game. In home (away) matches they are more dangerous after 76-90 minutes, during this period they scored 8 goals, but in the same time from 46-60 minutes of the match, they have obvious problems with the defense of their goal, because they conceded 12 goals. Obviously, having such statistics it is worth expecting a beautiful and entertaining game from the team.
