Why you should back NYCFC
New York has impressive numbers this season, and the squad’s overall performance is befitting of its encouraging place in the MLS table. Beyond the team metrics, NYCFC has standout performers, headlined by Valentin Castellanos. Castellanos leads MLS with 13 goals this season, generating 0.84 goals per 90 minutes. Santiago Rodriguez currently leads MLS with seven assists, and Talles Magno is in the top five of the league with six assists of his own.
New York is also facing a Miami side that is clearly struggling in a big-picture sense. Miami has only five goals in its last six road matches, and the Herons have the third-fewest goals in MLS (22) this season. Miami’s overall road woes include six losses in nine matches, and New York is impressively strong in its own ballpark.
Why you should back Inter Miami
Inter Miami did not fare well in a friendly in its last match, but Miami won its last MLS contest against Charlotte FC. Miami held a 59 percent possession edge in that match, generating 15 shots and holding Charlotte to only four shots. Drake Callender is playing well for Miami, as the 24-year-old American goalkeeper has allowed just16 goals in 12 matches. He has a rock-solid 74.1 percent save rate, and Inter Miami does have offensive weapons.
The squad deploys a balanced attack that features 10 players with at least one assist this season, and 21-year-old Leonardo Campana leads the way. The talented youngster from Ecuador has eight goals in 20 matches, ranking in the top 10 of MLS in non-penalty goals this season.
