Match preview

The last two MLS Cup winners go head-to-head at Field.

Defending champions New York City FC look well-placed to claim more silverware in 2022, despite a mini-wobble when Ronny Deila departed in May.

Last weekend, NYCFC held Club de Foot Montréal to a goalless draw at Stade Saputo.

This was, in fairness, the best they could’ve hoped for, given that the visitors didn’t muster a shot on target in Canada.

Before this, Nick Cushing’s side had enjoyed four successive wins and are now unbeaten in seven overall.

This leaves the Boys in Blue second in the east, just three points adrift of Philadelphia Union.

2022 MLS Cup champions Columbus Crew meanwhile are just aiming to sneak into the post-season party.

Caleb Porter’s team do remain above the play-off line, despite Wednesday night’s dramatic victory to Montréal.

Lucas Zelarayán opened the scoring in Ohio and that is how the score remained until the 88th minute.

The visitors snatched an equaliser, before winning it in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

This ended the Black and Gold’s nine-match unbeaten streak that dated back to 21 May.

So, New York City will fancy their chances of a win in Ohio.
