Final Betting Analysis: Comunicaciones vs New York City FC
If New York City FC had won the first match by a 2-1 score, Comunicaciones would have a shot to win this on the aggregate. But with a 3-1 score, the home team will find it difficult to secure a victory.
Comunicaciones is a good team, though. They can also be ultra-aggressive. Usually, aggressiveness in soccer can lead to big time wins.
In this case, it should lead to a big time loss. Comunicaciones’ aggressiveness in the first leg is how they were able to tie the match. By continuing to be aggressive, the defense fell apart and New York City FC countered with a couple of quick scores.
The home team has no shot to move to the semifinals if they don’t beat NYFC by at least 2 goals. Laying it all on the line will backfire. New York City FC gets the victory.
