New York Red Bulls will be taking on Columbus Crew at the weekend in what should be an intriguing game of football.

The Red Bulls overcame DC United last week by a narrow 1-0 victory but that meant that they have won 3 games in a row. They stay in the same position of 3rd place on 41 points but are just two points behind their rivals New York City and three points behind league leaders of the Eastern conference Atlanta United.

Columbus Crew are in 4th place but are 8 points behind the Red Bulls, a win here would dramatically see the gap shorten but the club are just thinking about the vital play off place and they have a 5 points safety net to that. They recently beat Orlando 3-2 which stopped a two game run of defeats and was much welcomed. Away from home Columbus have lost their last 3 games in a row.
