NEW YORK (Thursday, October 15, 2020) – Nashville SC midfielder Hany Mukhtar was voted the Major League Soccer Player of the Week for the 18th week of the 2020 MLS season.

Mukhtar scored two goals to help Nashville defeat the Houston Dynamo 3-1 at BBVA Stadium on Wednesday for his first career MLS brace. Mukhtar has now tallied three goals and three assists this season. Nashville is eighth in the Eastern Conference standings with 21 points (5-6-6 overall record).

Nashville took a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute when Mukhtar collected a pass from teammate Abu Danladi, dribbled into the box past a Houston defender, and finished with a right footed shot off the left post and into the net (watch goal).

Following Danladi’s goal in the 19th minute, Nashville took a 3-0 lead in the 23rd minute when Mukhtar sent a roaring right footed free kick from outside the box into the upper left hand corner (watch goal).

Nashville continues action on Tuesday when hosting FC Dallas at Nissan Stadium (8:30 p.m. ET, FS1 / FOX Deportes / FOX Sports App / TSN).

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season through both media and fan voting in a process conducted by MLS Communications. A panel of journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) comprises 75 percent of the vote, while a Twitter fan vote represents the remaining 25 percent of voting. NASR consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.

MLS Matchcenter Preview: New York City FC visits Columbus Crew SC tonight at 6 PM

 

2020 MLS Regular Season – Week 19
Columbus Crew SC vs. New York City FC
MAPFRE Stadium – Columbus
October 18 – 6:00 PM ET

STREAMING: MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US; on DAZN in Canada

LOCAL TV: YES, FOX Sports Ohio

Columbus Crew SC will look to snap a winless streak that’s now four matches when they host an NYCFC squad coming off a well-earned draw at Orlando City SC when the Eastern Conference squads square off at MAPFRE Stadium Sunday evening.

Crew SC (9W-4L-4D) are coming off their first Hell is Real defeat on Wednesday, while NYCFC (8W-7L-3D) battled Orlando City SC to a 1-1 draw at Exploria Stadium.

This is the third meeting this season, with both teams winning 1-0 at home. In fact that’s been the scoreline in the last three encounters with the home team winning each time.

Columbus Crew SC

With their last win nearly a month ago, the Crew are suddenly struggling. They’ve lost three of their last four matches, which includes a 2-1 road defeat to FC Cincinnati Wednesday. It led to a post-match apology from coach Caleb Porter.

Crew coach Caleb Porter said he expects a “spicy game” during his preview press conference, especially as both teams deal with injuries and seek an important win.

“I think it’s going to be a spicy game because I think they’re a team that’s good enough to be competing for things at the end,” Porter said, “and I believe that we are as well once we get out of this rut.”

New York City FC

On a day the club announced midfielder James Sands was out indefinitely with a fractured foot, NYCFC rallied to earn a 1-1 draw with red-hot Orlando City SC Wednesday night at Exploria Stadium. Keaton Parks scored the equalizer for NYCFC, which expects to welcome Maxi Moralez back to the lineup against Columbus.

Deila was still sorting whether the Argentine would start or appear as a substitute, though he’s officially recovered from a knee injury that’s forced him to miss the club’s last seven games.

“He will have an impact in the game, and we just have to see how much it’s going to be,” Delia said in a video conference call Saturday. “Then of course we have to build him up and look at him in the game and see how he’s doing.”

KEY POINTS

The last time New York City FC ventured to Columbus to take on the Crew it was the season opener for both teams in 2020. It was a rough introduction to league play for Ronny Deila when Maxime Chanot was sent off three minutes into the match which ultimately was the fastest red card to start a season in MLS history. The Boys in Blue battled well with 10 men, but fell by the finest of margins 1-0.

• Both Chanot and Valentin Castellanos are one yellow card away from a suspension. Speaking of Castellanos, the Argentine leads the league in shots per 90 minutes. He’s only played 66 minutes in his career at Columbus, but a moment of brilliance from distance in 2019 rescued a point in a 2-2 draw.

• Sean Johnson is tied for the league lead in saves with 64 and second in goals against average amongst goalkeepers who have started at least 15 matches.

• NYCFC currently sit 8 points clear of the playoff line with only 15 points left to play for. All five games remaining for the Boys in Blue are either against teams above them in the table, including their hosts today, or within that 8 point margin.

• Maxi Moralez is back in line for selection following a knee injury that has kept his sidelined since September 12. The Argentine playmaker has only played 486 minutes this season
