Columbus Crew vs New York City Match Preview
After a promising start to the season, Columbus Crew are on a dreadful run of form and another defeat looks set to come their way against a New York City side much more difficult to beat.
The Crew won four of their first six MLS matches this year but have subsequently lost eight out of nine, the exception being a 3-1 home victory over LA Galaxy.
In contrast, New York City have been beaten only once and they are an MLS rarity in that their away record is better than their home results this season, the key being their defensive solidity – just a solitary goal conceded within their last four road trips.
Although the team from the Big Apple are a little off the pace in the Eastern Conference standings, they have up to four games in hand on all of the teams above them – and a run of four consecutive home fixtures to come after this one.
A slight worry for Domenec Torrent’s side here is that the head-to-head series between these clubs favours whoever is playing at home.
But that is countered by the disparity in their current form and New York City, who are in much better heart just now, have to be backed to pile on the misery for their beleaguered hosts.
