Columbus Crew vs Toronto FC Preview

This is a lower mid-table clash between these two Eastern Conference teams, neither in particularly good form. Columbus have proved tough to beat at home in the last seven games with four draws and three wins although their prolific goalscoring seems to have deserted them. Toronto are a little further up the league but have lost their last three games away from home, conceding eight goals in the process.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Columbus DDWDD 1.88 1.62
Toronto  LLLWW 1.10 1.30

 

Picks?

Despite the relative league positions, this looks like a chance for a Columbus win – go for midfielders and strikers but avoid any defenders from this tie.

New York Red Bulls vs Orlando City Preview

New York are fourth in the league and their home form is excellent, with five wins from the last six games; they have also kept five clean sheets in a row on their own patch, only failing to score in their last match against the Portland Timbers. Orlando are without a win away from home in six and were on the wrong end of a 4-0 drubbing at Dallas on their last trip. They have shown they can score on the road though, averaging almost 1.3 goals per game.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
New York DWWWW 1.89 1.10
Orlando LDLDL 1.29 2.14

 

Picks?

Go for NY midfielders and strikers in particular but also consider defenders if necessary.

Chicago Fire vs Sporting Kansas City Preview

Bottom of the Eastern Conference hosts fifth in the Western Conference here and it looks like a tough encounter for a Chicago team struggling to rise from the depths. Home form could be described as reasonable with one defeat in seven but that includes just three wins and just one goal scored in six of those games – goalscoring is clearly an issue. Kansas City are poor on the road though and without a win in seven matches away from home; they recently ended a run of three games without a goal in a 2-2 draw at Montreal but there may not be many goals in this match.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Chicago DDWWW 1.38 0.50
Kansas LDWLL 1.11 2.00

 

Picks?

Defenders could be good value from both these teams but don’t bother with any other players.

Seattle Sounders vs FC Dallas Preview

Seattle are currently bottom of the WC and have the pleasure of entertaining table topping FC Dallas at CenturyLink Field on Wednesday evening; the result might not be as straightforward as it seems from league position because Dallas’ away form is a little patchy with just two wins from the last seven games. Seattle’s home form is poor though and they’ve failed to score in their last three home games, losing them all. We expect Dallas to continue that sequence. although the result could be close.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Seattle LLLWW 0.78 0.89
Dallas WLDWL 1.10 1.80

 

Picks?

FC Dallas defenders will be our picks here but we don’t expect a big score so hold back with any other Dallas players unless it becomes necessary.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Real Salt Lake City Preview

This is a mid-table clash in the Western Conference between two improving teams who both have reasons to be confident heading into this clash. Vancouver have lost just once in nine home games, scoring plenty of goals but conceding a fair few also, including two in each of the last two games. Salt Lake tend to be all or nothing away from home, either winning and scoring loads of goals or losing an scoring nothing. Your picks will depend on which Salt Lake side turns up.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Vancouver DLDWW 1.50 1.10
Salt Lake LWLWL 1.70 2.10

 

Picks?

It’s a risk to go for Salt Lake players because they concede plenty and they may not score any at all; avoid any players from this game unless you’re confident about their chances.

Portland Timbers vs Montreal Impact Preview

Seventh placed Portland from the WC host third placed Montreal from the EC in this fixture and it’s Montreal who look in the better form, although they’ve failed to win in five games away from home. Portland on the other hand have won five of their last six matches at home and are the bookies favourites to win this tie and we’re inclined to agree.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Portland WWWLW 2.11 1.56
Montreal DDLDD 1.33 1.56

 

Picks?

Go for Portland midfielders and strikers but leave the rest well alone.
