Game Preview

Last season, FC Cincinnati won the MLS Supporters’ Shield, that is, the award for the team with the most points in the regular season. Cincy won 69 points in total, with almost 60% of those won on their turf.

In fact, at TQL Stadium, FC Cincinnati went 13-2-2 last year, with both losses, as well as one draw happening in this team’s final four home games of the season.

Knowing all this, it’s kind of surprising that FC Cincinnati is still without a home win in the 2024 MLS. But that might change this coming Saturday when Cincy welcomes New York City FC.

One reason why that might happen is that the New Yorkers haven’t been too impressive since the start of the new season. NYCFC lost its first three games of the 2024 MLS before beating Toronto FC – last season’s worst MLS team – in the previous round.

Another reason why FC Cincinnati stands a very good chance of winning on March 23 is that these guys have a very good record against NYCFC – Cincy won all three of their duels played in 2023.  

FC Cincinnati vs. NYCFC Prediction

It’s time for FC Cincinnati to win its first home game of the 2024 MLS season. Their previous two league games at TQL Stadium finished in a 0-0 draw each, but this time, we think Cincy will win.
