Why Seattle Sounders will beat New York City FC

Seattle is in excellent form. The road team hasn’t lost in their last 5. Not only that, but in their last match, they drubbed the team they face on April 13, New York City. The Sounders got goals from Albert Rusnak, Jordan Morris, and Nicolas Lodeiro. Unless NYCFC switches things up in some way, there’s no reason to believe Seattle doesn’t win another and there’s no reason to believe they don’t win by a similar score.

Why New York City FC will beat Seattle Sounders

New York City lost the first leg to Seattle, but on Wednesday, the venue changes. NYCFC takes on the Seattle Sounders at home. New York City is a much better team at home. So we should expect NYCFC to play their best game probably since the 4-1 victory over CF Montreal on March 12.

Final Betting Analysis: New York City FC vs Seattle Sounders

Although New York City FC should play much better on Wednesday than they did in the last match, it’s difficult seeing them getting past Seattle. Yes, the Sounders mustn’t push too hard because they’ve got a 2-goal aggregate lead.

But NYCFC is playing their worst soccer of the season. Not only did they lose to Seattle in their last, but they also lost their three previous matches. 

Not only that, but Seattle has won 3-of-5 with a couple of draws. One of the draws was a terrific performance versus Mexican Liga squad Leon. 

This could be a case where the road team is just better. Seattle is playing at a high-level while New York City FC isn’t. The Sounders, even with a big aggregate lead, will come out firing. Expect Seattle to score the moneyline win.
