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.”

2020 MLS Regular Season – Week 18
FC Cincinnati vs. Columbus Crew SC
Nippert Stadium – Cincinnati
October 14 – 7:30 PM ET

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

LOCAL TV: Star64, FOX Sports Ohio

It’s the fourth chapter of the Hell is Real Derby this season and FC Cincinnati are hoping for their first win against the rival Columbus Crew when the teams meet Wednesday night at Nippert Stadium.

FC Cincinnati (3W-10L-4D) are now goalless in five straight matches following a 1-0 home loss to Toronto FC, their fourth consecutive defeat. Columbus (9W-3L-4D) are winless in their last three after a 2-1 defeat to the Montreal Impact in Week 16.

The Crew have dominated the series, with a pair of lopsided victories this year, including a 3-0 win at MAPFRE Stadium in the last meeting Sept. 6. The teams played to a 0-0 draw in the only match at Nippert Stadium on August 29.

FC Cincinnati

It’s now four consecutive shutout defeats for offensively-starved FC Cincinnati, which fell to Toronto FC 1-0 at Nippert Stadium Sunday. The club had a late penalty shout with referee Robert Sibiga pointing to the spot after Omar Gonzalez was ruled to have fouled Alan Cruz. But the initial decision was reversed following Video Review.

“The penalty, it was like 10 yards away from it, so he saw it very well from a very short distance,” Jaap Stam said of Sibiga after the match. “The first thing he does is give the penalty. I think if it was for one of the big teams in the league they would’ve had a penalty, but for some reason we don’t get it – and I think it was [one]. So it’s a strange decision.”

On Monday, FC Cincinnati acquired forward Franko Kovacevic from TSG Hoffenheim on loan through June 2021. Cincy have the option to extend the loan through the 2021 season. FCC and Hoffenheim announced a partnership on Sept. 25. Kovacevic’s loan is the first player movement between the two clubs.
