Each of Austin FC's last seven MLS victories have all come at Q2 Stadium. Cincinnati meanwhile have only ever won seven of 45 away games in MLS.
So, Austin FC to win is 3/4.
Both teams to score NO is 11/10.
Austin FC to win and both teams to score NO is 9/4.
Two of Major League Soccer's most recent expansion clubs go head-to-head, both hoping for better in 2022.
This is FC Cincinnati's fourth season in MLS and, in each of the first three, they've won the Wooden Spoon Award having finished rock bottom of the overall standings.
Staggeringly, the Orange and Blue have won just 14 of 91 games so far, something they'll certainly be looking to improve upon.
Pat Noonan is the new Head Coach in Ohio and, with few notable players having left, he's managed to attract some talent.
Dominique Badji, Alvas Powell, Alec Kann and Ray Gaddis have all moved within MLS, bolstering this admittedly weak Cincinnati squad.
It's obviously a low bar the but Orange and Blue will just be looking to not finish bottom of the table before they start thinking about making a play-off run.
Austin meanwhile made their league debut last season but experienced a baptism of fire, facing the challenges being an expansion club provides.
The Texans did manage to win nine games but ended up second bottom of the Western Conference, still 11 points better off than Cincinnati.
Josh Wolff has added Maxi Urruti, Žan Kolmanič, Ethan Finlay and Ruben Gabrielsen to his roster as Austin look to kick on and finish higher in season two.
They couldn't have asked for a kinder opening weekend fixture, at home to the league's weakest side, so will Austin win at Q2 Stadium?
