Match preview

Can Columbus Crew climb back into the play-off positions?

Last time out, the Black and Gold looked set for a crucial victory over Portland, Kevin Molino scoring, only for the Timbers to equalise in the 95th minute.

This has very much been the theme of Columbus’ season; 15 of the 36 goals they’ve conceded (41.6%) have come in the 75th minute or later.

For context, the highest single-season % stands at 47.4, set by LA Galaxy nine years ago.

Caleb Porter’s team are paying the price for continuously dropping points as they start the weekend below the play-off line.

After this, the Crew conclude the campaign with road trips to Charlotte and Orlando, making this home game very much must win.

New York Red Bulls meanwhile were easily beaten in the Hudson River Derby a fortnight ago, going down 2-0 at NYCFC.

Gerhard Struber’s side do remain third, one point above their cross-city rivals, but are very much determined to stay there.

RBNY have lost two of their last three, despite only losing three of the previous 12, which isn’t ideal ahead of the post-season.

So, an important game for both, but who will prevail at Field?
