New York City FC vs New England Revolution
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 7 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Yankee Stadium (New York).
New York is trudging with no fear in their quest to get to the top of the league standings in the East. At present they have two games in hand, and trails behind the pole spot by a single point.
At home too they have been in fine form, and with topper Philly taking on the best side in the whole MLS, Los Angeles FC, in their next encounter, this is a major opportunity for the hosts to make some inroads for the pole position.
New England could make the job easier for the home team, with their current form. As of now, both Revolution and Columbus Crew at the bottom have returned just two wins from the previous five match-days.
