Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew Preview & Picks


Cincinnati edged past Philadelphia Union in the last round of the MLS as they made it five without defeat on the pitch. 

Columbus Crew needed extra-time to finally down Orlando City in a 2-0 win in the Conference Semi-Finals. 

  • Cincinnati are unbeaten in their last five (W4, D1)
  • Cincinnati have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five matches 
  • The Crew have lost one of their last three (W2)
  • Columbus have seen three goals or more scored in three of their last five 

Head-To-Head


The two sides both secured a win over the other in the regular season, with home advantage proving vital. In their last 10 meetings, Cincinnati have two wins, Columbus have won five times and there have been three draws. 

Cincinnati Form 


Cincinnati finished at the summit of the Eastern Conference during the regular season after winning 20 of their 34 games and only losing five times. 

In the playoffs, Cincinnati have looked very strong, beating New York Red Bulls in the best of three before then edging past Philadelphia Union in a 1-0 win. With just one match standing between Cincinnati and the MLS Cup, they need to be at their best in this match. 

Cincinnati are clearly deserving of a place in the final following a supreme campaign in the regular season, while they also finished 12 points clear of Columbus in the standings. 

Columbus Crew Form 


Despite finishing in third in the standings in the Eastern Conference, Columbus have managed to outlast the opposition across the season as they have taken their place in the Conference Finals. 

The Crew began their playoff campaign with a 2-0 win over Atlanta United before they fell to a 4-2 loss. Impressively, the Crew bounced back with a 4-2 win over United to move into the next round as they defeated Orlando City 2-0 after extra-time. 

Columbus know they have every chance of getting to the MLS Cup match in a one-off clash with Cincinnati. However, they will need to be near-perfect against the best side in the Conference this season. 

Verdict

With Cincinnati impressing across the regular season, we are backing them to win this one in a match in which both sides score.
