KEY POINTS

• New York City FC returns from the
international break to face
Columbus Crew for the second time
this season. The Boys in Blue
haven’t won in the Ohio capital
since 2017.

• Despite the Club’s poor away
record in Columbus, NYCFC has a
perfect record after a loss this
season. In the previous three
matches following a defeat in 2021,
NYCFC has outscored their
opponents 8-2 and took all nine
points.

• Alexander Callens returns from
international duty fresh off a stretch
of positive performances for Peru.
The central defender started five
matches as Peru finished fourth
place in Copa America. He is
available for selection this weekend
after missing the Club’s last four
games.

• NYCFC has scored goals in 22
consecutive MLS games, including
playoffs. The last time the Boys in
Blue were shut out was September
23, 2020 against Toronto FC.

POSTGAME QUOTES
New York City FC Head Coach Ronny Deila:
On Luis Barraza’s first MLS start…
“I think he did well. I can’t blame him for the penalty situation. The goal, I haven’t seen again…so for me, he had one good save in the first half and had good distribution. To be his first game in MLS, it was a good start.”
New York City FC Goalkeeper Luis Barraza:
On how he felt on his first MLS start and words Sean Johnson had for him…
“It’s tough when it’s your first game and there is this build up and emotion to the game. But once you step in, it’s business as usual. I thought I did well in portions of the game. There were other portions that I thought could have been better. But in talking to Sean, we talk all the time and he’s always giving great advice since I got to the Club. He told me to enjoy it. We see each other and we see the work we put in week in and week out. He told me to enjoy and do my thing.”
