New York City - DC United
New York City jumped out of the gate on the 2019 league season in Orlando and took a 2-0 half-time lead. Ebenezer Ofori opened the scoring after 13 minutes and Alexander Ring doubled the lead just before the half-time whistle. They couldn t hang on though as Orlando City came firing back with goals in the 59th and 75th minutes to level the league game 2-2. New York City have just two wins, three draws and two losses in their past seven regular league matches going back to last season. However, New York will hope to turn things around at home this weekend. They were the third best side on home turf in 2018 with 40 out of a possible 51 points at Yankee Stadium.DC United opened the 2019 season in style with a 2-0 home win over MLS Cup champions Atlanta Utd at Audi Field. Paul Arriola put DC United in front just before the half-time whistle and man of the match Luciano Acosta put the icing on the cake with his 58th minute marker. DC United face another stiff league test this week in New York City as they struggled mightily on the road last season with only a single win, seven draws and nine losses for ten points in 17 away league games. New York City hasn t been too impressive over the past half year and struggled in the preseason with just one win. David Villa has left and I don t think they have what it takes to beat DC United even if this league contest is at home. I m expecting a draw here.Pick: X
