Preview, prediction for FC Cincinnati-New York City FC MLS match at TQL Stadium

If there's a good moment for FC Cincinnati to catch New York City FC, the fourth-place team in MLS's Eastern Conference, it might be right now. 

Cincinnati (4-11-8) meets NYCFC (10-8-5) Saturday at TQL Stadium for a scheduled 7:30 p.m. kickoff, and New York presents one of the biggest challenges in the East but also could be ripe for an upset. 

NYCFC is on a three-match road slide and is winless overall in its last three games. 

Further, New York has personnel concerns.

Thiago Andrade is set to miss Saturday's game after being red-carded in NYCFC's 3-3 draw with FC Dallas on Tuesday in Harrison, New Jersey.

Héber Araujo dos Santos, or just "Héber" for short, made his first appearance in almost a year for NYCFC against Dallas after his successful rehabilitation from a torn ACL. However, Héber's run lasted just nine minutes as a second-half substitute and it's questionable as to whether he's fit for a larger contribution than that against Cincinnati.
