New York City vs Philadelphia (By: TFB)
The MLS post-season kicks off in New York as New York City face Philadelphia in the Bronx in this first knockout match.
This match-up is a repeat of the final game of the season for both sides as New York City ran out 3-1 winners on that occasion just 3 days ago. A similar result is likely with New York typically being strong on home soil and, after all, they also boast the better players.
David Villa, Ismael Tajouri and Max Moralez have 33 league goals between them and they all featured in the 3-1 win with David Villa getting on the score sheet.
Philly are usually poor on the road but since August they have pulled out a few good results with a run of 5 away wins in 7. Since though, they are winless in their last 3.
NYCFC are quite rightly favourites here.
