New York City FC vs FC Dallas 9/14/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

New York City proved yet again that they are much different (and much worse) on the road than they are at home. They will now return home after two losses on the road, and they will play host to FC Dallas on Tuesday. FC Dallas tried to make a comeback in early August but they have reverted to old habits and have won just once ever since.

New York City FC (10 wins, 8 losses, 4 draws) are coming into this match after a frustrating 2-1 loss on the road against New England. They actually took the lead in that match, but they were equalized at the 21st minute and then again at the 65th for the final 2-1 loss. They have now lost 2 in a row and 3 of their last 4, but all 3 losses came on the road. New York City are sitting at the 4th spot of the Eastern Conference with 34 points, scoring 38 goals and conceding 34 in the process. They have been much better at home (8 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw) than they have been on the road (2 wins, 6 losses, 3 draws). Moreover, they have won each of their last 7 home matches in the MLS, while also keeping 5 clean sheets in the process.

FC Dallas (6 wins, 10 losses, 8 draws) were actually much better than San Jose in their home match over the weekend. However, they conceded an early goal through a penalty kick, but they pulled even at the 50th minute for the final 1-1 draw. They have been in bad shape lately and they have won just 1 of their last 6 (1 win, 3 losses, 2 draws), conceding 12 goals in that span. FC Dallas are now sitting at the 11th spot of the Western Conference with 26 points, 4 points behind the playoff spots. They have been quite bad on the road so far (2 wins, 8 losses, 2 draws), scoring 14 goals and conceding 25 in the process. However, both wins and both draws on the road have come within their last 5 away matches. 

New York City FC vs FC Dallas. The two teams have not met since 2019, and there is total balance in 5 matches between them over the years, with each team winning once and three goal-draws in-between. New York City have been one of the best home teams this season and should not have a problem in overcoming a struggling FC Dallas team.
