Preview, predictions for game at New York City FC

The last time the Crew visited Yankee Stadium, they were dominated in a 4-1 loss to New York City on July 30.

Reigning MLS Cup champion New York City FC has shown its offensive firepower this season. The Columbus Crew were already well aware of what’s possible when NYCFC is at the top of its game.

The last time the Crew visited Yankee Stadium, they were dominated in a 4-1 loss on July 30, which began a six-game losing streak that ultimately sunk the Crew’s season and chance of making the playoffs.

“On their day, they can run you over,” Crew coach Caleb Porter said. “They can play through your pressure better than any team I’ve seen.”

Like all games in this four-game stretch before an extended break, this is a glimpse for the Crew to see how they stack up against the league’s best. NYCFC has been humming as of late with 14 goals in the past four games and holding opponents scoreless in two of the past three games.
