Columbus Crew vs New York City FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd June 2019
Kick-off at 00.30 UK/ 01.30 CET
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium (Columbus).

Columbus is not having a great season at all. They seldom have posted wins on the board, and even with aid of their home status.

The last match-day, the team lost against Colorado Rapids, to a scoreline of 3-2. It must have been pretty hurting, as the winner came in the 89th minute.

In their last home tie, the team lost against Los Angeles, to a 3-0 drubbing. Once again, two goals came in the last two minutes of the tie.

On the other hand, New York City is on a roll right now. They are unbeaten in their last five fixtures, and so are they in their last five attempts on the road.
