FC Cincinnati - Columbus Crew: Form Analysis

Cincinnati come into this match after securing a 1-0 win over Philadelphia Union in the semi-final. Yerson Mosquera volleyed home in stoppage time to give the Supporters’ Shield winners the victory and propel them into their first-ever Eastern Conference final. Across the season, Cincinnati have shown their ability time and again to find that little extra when needed and are now on a five-match unbeaten run in this competition. Cincy ended the regular season six points clear of Orlando City in second place with a record of 20 wins, nine draws, and just five losses. Only two of those losses came on home turf, while they won 15 and drew two. The hosts beat this opponent at this venue 3-2 earlier this season and are the favourites heading into this one. 

Meanwhile, after Rodrigo Schlegel was shown red, Columbus piled on the pressure and finally broke through a stubborn Orlando defence in extra time last week. With that result, they are now featuring in their first conference final since 2020. Wilfried Nancy has got the best out of his squad this season, adapting their style of play with pacey wingbacks that have transformed the side’s attacking threat. Crew ended the regular season with a record of 16 wins, nine draws and nine losses. That left them six points behind Orlando in second place but did mark their best-ever finish to an MLS regular season. However, the visitors have not been as clinical on the road as they have been on their home soil. They have won four of their last ten away games in all competitions and have failed to win any of their last three in regulation time.

FC Cincinnati & Columbus Crew Squad Analysis

Nick Hagglund has been flagged as a doubt for this match as the defender has been struggling with a hamstring issue in the last few weeks. Stiven Jimenez is the only confirmed injury absentee for this match, while Matt Miazga is ineligible for selection due to a suspension through the sports court. 

Will Sands is the only player who is unavailable for the visitors in this match as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury. Patrick Schulte kept his first post-season clean sheet last week and will need another big performance between the sticks to help his side through this one.

Our FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Prediction

Cincinnati have been the side to beat this season and are now on the verge of their first-ever MLS Cup appearance. They have the home-ground advantage, which will be a huge factor here as they try to overcome a resilient Columbus side. As is often the case with finals, this could be a cagey affair in the early stages, and while we fancy the hosts to come out on top, we will opt for the safety of our money back in the event this one goes to penalties.
