The fixtures are coming thick and fast in the regular season of the MLS with New York City FC hosting a struggling DC United outfit at the Yankee Stadium this Wednesday.

The home side has built up a winning streak over the past two games and will want to pick up a victory in this match.

DC United have endured a miserable season so far and are currently rooted to the bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference standings. The away side suffered a 4-0 thrashing against Atlanta United over the weekend and will want to put in a better performance in this fixture.

New York City FC have largely met expectations this season and moved up to fifth place in the MLS table after edging Inter Miami to a 3-2 victory. The home side has plenty of work to do to reach the top four and will have to win this game.


New York City FC vs DC United Head-to-Head

New York City FC have a marginally superior head-to-head record against DC United and have won six matches out of a total of 13 games played between the two sides. DC United have managed four victories and will have to be at their best to cut the deficit this week.

The previous meeting between the two sides took place last month and ended in an uneventful 0-0 stalemate. New York City FC have shown improvement over the past month and have the upper hand in this game.
