The Pigeons are one of the in-form sides in Major League Soccer.

New York City have surprised everyone with their performances in this Major League Soccer season. They started the season poorly, but the progress they have made since then has brought them to the third place in the Eastern Conference.

The Pigeons have secured five consecutive wins in a row for the first time this season and are one of the best teams right now. Coach Nick Cushing has done wonders with the team, who have looked hungry for success in recent matches. 

Columbus Crew have performed well this season and are unbeaten in their last three games in the league. They are currently languishing in seventh spot after playing fewer matches than the rest of the teams. It was due to their participation in the Concacaf Champions Cup, where they eventually lost to Mexican side Pachuca in the finals. Now, they will shift their focus to the league where things are getting tight at the top. 

Kick-Off:

Saturday, 15 June at 5:00 AM IST

Location- Yankee Stadium

Form:

New York City FC (in all competitions): W-W-W-W-W

Columbus Crew (in all competitions): L-W-W-W-L

Player to Watch

Santiago Rodriguez (New York City FC) 

Santiago Rodriguez has played a crucial role in New York City‘s recent good form. He is currently leading the scoring department after netting six goals for the team. After providing four assists to his teammates, he is also the top assist-provider.

Rodriguez has looked impressive from the attacking midfield position for the team this season, constantly driving the ball forward and also doing the defensive part efficiently. 

Cucho Hernandez (Columbus Crew) 

Cucho Hernandez has led the line excellently for his team in this MLS season, scoring four goals in nine matches. He has turned into a crucial player due to the qualities he brings to the side. He was the top scorer for the Columbus Crew team last season and had started this season on a good level.

Hernandez is a fast, agile striker who likes to play on the back of defenders. He can take on defenders by using his directness and low centre of gravity to get past opponents with ease.

  • Nick Cushing’s men have won five consecutive matches.
