Match preview

It's first vs third in the Eastern Conference as two of MLS' early front-runners go head-to-head in New Jersey.

Columbus Crew are one of just four teams in Major League Soccer with seven points to their name so are currently top of the overall standings.

The Black and Gold added three points to their tally last weekend, coming from behind to beat Toronto FC 2-1 at Lower.com Field.

Lucas Zelarayán firing home his fourth of the season already to equalise, before Derrick Etienne Jr. smashed in the winner.

Caleb Porter's side have now won both home games, also beating Vancouver Whitecaps 4-0, with a 3-3 draw in San Jose in between.

The Crew really should've won that one too, leading 3-1 with six minutes to go at PayPal Park, but throwing away two points in California.

Nevertheless, it's been a very impressive start for the 2020 MLS Cup winners, so will that continue in Harrison?

New York Red Bulls meanwhile began with back-to-back emphatic victories on the road.

First, they won 3-1 against San Jose Earthquakes before Lewis Morgan's first half hat-trick helped down Toronto 4-1 at BMO Field.

However, in last weekend's home-opener, Gerhard Struber's side were below-par, going down 1-0 to Minnesota United.

So, the home RBNY supporters will be expecting better this time round.

Who will win this top of the table clash at Red Bull Arena?
