Victory for New York City

New York City is our favourite to win this game. The hosts have netted some bangers since the start of the new MLS season. With only four goals conceded and ten scored, a home win looks good on the books. NYC has conceded only one goal and scored six in two home fixtures so far. For Columbus Crew, things don’t seem to work on the road. The visitors have lost twice and drawn once on the road since the start of the season. Defeating a high scoring side with a solid defence like NYC will not be a walk in the park for the visitors.

There will be lots of goals

There have been sixteen encounters between the two teams, eleven of which had more than two goals. While Columbus Crew hasn’t been conceding lots of goals in the new season, the visitors face a much better side on Sunday 23rd May 2021 at the Yankee Stadium. Ten goals in five games mean NCY averages two goals per game, six of which have come from two home fixtures. Moreover, the hosts average three goals per game at home and we expect a high scoreline on match day.

A clean sheet for New York City FC

Columbus Crew has failed to register a goal in their last three away games in all competitions, conceding an average of 2.5 goals in all of them. The visitors will play their third consecutive away game at the Yankee Stadium. It is unlikely that they can pull a win here, especially after so much travelling. New York kept a clean sheet after a 5-0 victory against Cincinnati before sharing the spoils with Toronto FC last weekend. A second home game in a row gives the hosts lots of confidence in getting another victory at home, and possibly with a clean sheet.

Fixture Preview: Columbus Crew Hopes for the First Away Win at the Yankee Stadium since 2015

Columbus Crew faces an uphill task of winning at the Yankee Stadium after nearly six years. It is especially a difficult task against 2021 title prospects. But in football, you can never tell. More details in our preview.

New York City FC

New York City’s first home game was a thumping victory of 5-0 against FC Cincinnati. They would later get another clean sheet victory on the road against Philadelphia Union. While the hosts have drawn their last two games before this fixture, scoring six and conceding only one goal in two home fixtures means the hosts are better defensively. In their last game, NYC FC managed 6 shots on target with an average ball possession of 58%. They dominated the second half with 63% out of which they got the six shots on target.

Columbus Crew

Columbus Crew lost their last two games but hope for a win against a team they haven’t defeated on the road since 2015. The visitors have lost all their last three away games, which complicates things for Caleb Porter and his squad. Since taking over at Columbus Crew, Porter has registered 30 wins, 16 draws and 26 losses, translating to 1.47 points per match. On the other hand, the hosts’ manager, Ronny Deila averages 1.62 points after 34 games in charge.
