Why bet on FC Cincinnati?

As in the 2023 season, FC Cincinnati has shown an exceptional level of play, continuing to battle with Inter Miami for the lead in the MLS Eastern Conference.

Currently, Cincinnati is second in the table with a record of eleven wins, three draws and three losses, with 27 goals scored and 18 goals conceded. As we can see, the team is showing great offense and solid defense week in and week out. So it’s no surprise to see them in this battle for supremacy. However, they need to be more powerful and take advantage of any mistakes that Inter Miami might encounter from here on out.

Let’s also not forget that Leo Messi and Luis Suarez will play the Copa America with their respective national teams, so they can take advantage of any Inter losses or draws to overtake them in the standings.

FC Cincinnati is coming off an excellent win against SJ Earthquakes, with a score of 4-2.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Union?

On the other hand, we have the Philadelphia Union, a team that wants to regain glory and return to being a prominent and dangerous team in the MLS.

The Union is ranked eighth in the MLS Eastern Conference, with a record of four wins, eight draws and five losses, with 28 goals scored and 25 goals conceded. The team couldn’t turn draws into wins, so we’re looking at a side with some defensive issues.

That said, we expect Philadelphia to improve their defense as this is the only way they have any chance of pinning FC Cincinnati in this MLS Matchday 20 match.

The Union comes into action in this match after a 1-2 defeat at home against Inter Miami.
