New England vs Cincinnati Prediction

New England Revolution have faced FC Cincinnati seven times in history and lost just once. The loss came back in 2019 when the two sides met for the first time in MLS history.

The Revs dominated possession in the match but could not make the most of it. Despite having 52 percent of the ball and 18 shots, they managed just two shots on target while their opponents got double of that. Kekuta Manneh scored late in the first half to hand FC Cincinnati the lead and Kenny Saief sealed the win with a goal in the 65th minute.

All New England in the Last Four Meetings

Since then, the two sides have met four times in the league and New England have picked up the win in all the matches. The latest meeting was earlier this season in May. Cincinnati dominated the possession this time and scored from both their shots on target, but could not get the win. Sebastian Lletget scored the opening goal in the 17th minute for New England, but their lead lasted just 9 minutes. Brandon Vazquez leveled things up for the home side but they could not make it to halftime with the same score line. Adam Buksa restored New England’s lead right before the break with a goal in the 43rd minute.

Alvaro Barreal pulled Cincinnati back on level terms just before the hour mark and the game looked poised to end in a draw. Tommy McNamara stunned the home fans with a goal in the 89th minute to steal the win and help the Revolutions walk away with all three points. The two sides have met twice outside the MLS – New England winning 5-1 in the US Open Cup earlier this year and the other being a 1-1 draw in a club friendly, back in 2018.

New England Revolution Are on an Unbeaten Run

New England had a short pre-season ahead of the 2022 season and played just two games. They drew 1-1 in Los Angeles FC and then were thrashed by LA Galaxy. They kicked off their season with a 2-2 draw at Portland Timbers. Their first home match was against FC Dallas and Carles Gil scored the lone goal of the match to help the Revolutions collect the three points.

They carried their league form to the CONCACAF Champions League and defeated Liga MX side, Pumas UNAM, 3-0 at home. However, their focus shifted and their league form suffered.

A Worrying Start to the Season

Real Salt Lake handed them their first defeat of the season with a late comeback. Emmanuel Boateng handed the Revolution the lead right at halftime before Jozy Altidore doubled the lead right after the hour mark. Things were going well until Adam Buksa was taken out in the 77th minute.

Sergio Cordova pulled one back for Real Salt Lake in the 78th minute and Justen Glad completed the comeback in the 88th minute. Tate Schmitt made things better and won the game for the away side in the 93rd minute.

The shock loss saw them lose their next four matches, including a loss in the penalty shootout to Pumas – resulting in them getting knocked out of the Champions League. They ended their four-match losing streak in the league with a 2-1 win over newcomers, Charlotte FC but lost their next match to DC United.

Hitting Back Strongly

Since their loss to DC United, New England Revolution have gone on an unbeaten run. It started with a 2-0 win over Inter Miami, and then a 2-2 draw at home with Columbus Crew. They held Atlanta United at the Mercedes Benz Stadium and then won 3-2 at FC Cincinnati.

In the last five matches their form has been topsy turvy. They drew 1-1 with Philadelphia Union and then defeated Sporting Kansas City 2-1. They followed it up with yet another 1-1 draw at home to Orlando City SC and then Minnesota United 2-1.

Despite Vancouver Whitecaps’ struggling this season, New England could not defeat them in the last game week. They had 59 percent of the ball, 16 shots at goal, and four corners, yet failed to score a goal. The goalless draw saw them sit 13th in the league table and miss out on the chance to jump to 7th – level with FC Dallas.

Injuries and Suspensions

Matt Polster is ruled out.

FC Cincinnati Are Looking To End Their Winless Streak Against New England

FC Cincinnati had a relatively long pre-season and played five matches ahead of the MLS season. They went unbeaten in those games, registering three wins and two draws.

However, they could not carry the momentum from their pre-season games into the league. They were thrashed 5-0 by Austin FC in the opening weekend. DC United edged out a 1-0 win in the next match with a goal from the spot in the 98th minute. FC Cincinnati did not have to wait long for their first win as they defeated Orlando City 2-1 in the next match. They followed it up with a 3-1 win at home in the next game against Inter Miami.

A Decent Run Before a Fall

They could not make it a hat-trick of wins as Charlotte FC ended their two-match winning run and handed them a 2-0 defeat. CF Montreal snuck a win at FC Cincinnati in the next game week and walked away with all three points. Cincinnati went on a decent run since then and lost just once in the next 6 games. They won four of those matches and drew just once- a goalless draw at Atlanta United.

In the last five matches, FC Cincinnati have not been at their best. They lost to New England Revolution and were handed another 4-3 defeat by CF Montreal. They ended their two-match losing streak with a come-from-behind draw at Philadelphia Union.

One Win in Five

Their lone win in the last five matches came at home against Orlando City. Brenner scored the lone goal of the game and helped them collect the three points for the first time in four matches.

Reigning champions New York City FC were up next for Cincinnati at home. The Orange and Blue side stunned NYCFC and took a 3-0 lead inside the first 30 minutes. They held onto their three-goal lead until the 44th minute but somehow went into the break level on terms. Talles Magno scored in the 45th minute with Heber scoring a brace in injury time to make it 3-3 before the break. Gabriel Pereira made it 4-3 for NYCFC in the 52nd minute before Brenner completed his hat-trick to make it 4-4 on the night. He found the net again in the 91st minute, but VAR ruled it out.

Injuries and Suspensions

Ronald Matarrita and Dominique Badji are ruled out.
