Crew SC shutdown by Montreal Impact, 1-0

GAME RECAP WRITTEN BY Logan Agin; COURTESY OF COLUMBUS CREW SC COMMUNICATIONS

 

 

Columbus Crew SC (4-2-1, 13 pts.) were unable to capitalize on a handful of solid chances as the away side fell 1-0 to the Montreal Impact (3-2-2, 11 pts.) in their home-opener on Saturday, April 13 at Stade Saputo.

In the first half, the Black & Gold created multiple goal-scoring opportunities in the first half, with midfielders Federico Higuain and Robinho each posting solid chances in the 22nd and 26th minute, respectively, but were both blocked by Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush. In the 39th minute, forward Gyasi Zardes tried to redirect the ball into the net but as it rolled just outside of the goal frame.

Crew SC opened up the second half of play with a curving shot by Robinho that was tipped out of bounds by Bush in the 52nd minute. In the 55th minute, Montreal’s Maxi Urruti dropped the ball back to Harry Novillo, who drove the ball past goalkeeper Zack Steffen, the first goal Steffen has conceded in 499 consecutive minutes of play. In the 68th minute, Higuain’s corner kick was deflected off of the bottom of the crossbar and was eventually cleared.

With this loss, the Black & Gold’s record in Montreal since 2014 drops to 1-4-0. Up next, Columbus returns to MAPFRE Stadium to host the Portland Timbers on Saturday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Less than a month ago, Columbus Crew SC went into Gillette Stadium and earned a 2-0 road win over a physical New England Revolution team that had won its previous 12 home openers.

Now, less than four weeks since their last meeting, the Revs visit MAPFRE Stadium – the site of League-leading success for Crew SC – as the Black & Gold host New England as they come off their first victory of 2019 following a 2-1 win over Minnesota United FC.

At 1-3-1, New England has totaled five goals compared to Columbus’ six – both middle-of-the-pack in terms of League standings – but when it comes to chance quality, the Crew have a 51 percent shooting accuracy, the fourth-highest in MLS, compared to the Revs’ 33 percent rate, which puts them in the League’s bottom four.

Crew SC beat Atlanta United FC with a perfect first half with 2-for-2 on shot conversion with goals from Pedro Santos and Gyasi Zardes.

In the two sides’ first meeting, Columbus again posted a perfect shooting percentage with Zardes netting the half’s only goal on the Club’s only shot, a well-snapped header off a ball from Santos.

Notably, Santos has been directly involved in each of Crew SC’s three game-winning goals, delivering two game-winning assists before scoring the game-winner against Atlanta.

Key for the Crew will be holding Carles Gil in-check, something they showed success in on March 9 at Gillette Stadium. In that match, Gil, who leads the Revs in goals (3) and shots (15), was held to zero chances created and three total shots, none of which landed on frame.

The Crew’s top-tier defensive standing, particularly at home, will come to the forefront, as the Black & Gold remain tied atop the League in shutouts (3) and have held opponents to just 20 total shots on target through five matches. Additionally, the Club is tied for fourth League-wide in goals conceded (4), compared to New England’s nine.

After going winless in their first four, the Revs pounded Minnesota with 19 shots, which was nearly half of their season total going into last Saturday. Additionally, New England brings success in duel wins as they lead the League with 308.

Notably, Crew SC leads the League in recoveries with 371, a statistic emblematic of Porter’s emphasis on maintaining possession and shrouding the opponent upon losing possession, while New England leads MLS in possessions lost with 855.

As the Crew get set to play their fourth match at MAPFRE Stadium this season, the Revs come into an environment that has not bode well for them recently, having going winless in all but one of the last seven matches. The Crew, on the other hand, hold the most points at home League-wide since the start of the 2017 season with 89.

Crew SC to add former coach Sigi Schmid to team’s Circle of Honor on Saturday June 29

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY & COURTESY OF COLUMBUS CREW SC COMMUNICATIONS

 

 

Schmid will be posthumously inducted during Crew SC’s home contest against Orlando City SC on Saturday, June 29

Former Crew SC Head Coach led the Black & Gold to MLS Cup and Supporters’ Shield trophies during the 2008 season

COLUMBUS – Columbus Crew SC announced today that the late Sigi Schmid has been selected as the third member of the Club’s Circle of Honor – the Crew’s highest accolade that pays homage to its most iconic performers and personalities – and will be posthumously inducted on Saturday, June 29 during Crew SC’s home contest against Orlando City SC. The recognition on June 29, which will feature members of the Schmid family, will include Schmid’s name becoming a permanent fixture upon the upper fascia at MAPFRE Stadium alongside the names of previous inductees Brian McBride and Frankie Hejduk.

Schmid served as the Head Coach of the Columbus Crew from 2006-2008, leading the Club to its first MLS Cup in 2008 as part of a domestic double that also saw the Black & Gold win the Supporters’ Shield that year. That same season, Schmid was named the recipient of the MLS Coach of the Year Award, a League award that is now named after him. To this date, Crew SC’s 2008 season under Schmid remains the Club’s best season in terms of total points (57) and silverware won. During his three seasons in charge of the Crew, Schmid led the club to a winning 34-33-25 regular-season record.

“It is with great pride that we are able to announce that Sigi Schmid will become the third member of the Crew’s Circle of Honor, said Crew SC President Tim Bezbatchenko. “In working with the Haslam and Edwards families, we wanted to properly recognize the impact Sigi had on this organization and there is no higher recognition and no better place to celebrate Sigi’s legacy than the Crew’s Circle of Honor. Sigi helped bring an MLS Cup title in 2008 which was incredibly monumental for both the Club and Columbus. From a personal standpoint, I had the pleasure to get to know Sigi and work directly with him and I know he is greatly missed in the soccer community. We look forward to welcoming his family to MAPFRE Stadium on June 29 as we believe supporters have a special opportunity to pay respects to an important member of the Black & Gold family.”

In addition to his time at the helm of Crew SC, Schmid also served as head coach for the LA Galaxy from 1999-2004 and from 2017-2018, in addition to working as head coach for Seattle Sounders FC from 2009-2016. In all, Schmid won two MLS Cups (2002, 2008), five Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cups (2001, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2014), three Supporters’ Shields (2002, 2008, 2014) and one CONCACAF Champions’ Cup (2000). At the individual level, Schmid was twice the recipient of the Sigi Schmid Coach of the Year Award (1999, 2008). Schmid held a regular-season record of 240-183-125, with his .552 winning percentage record making him the winningest head coach in MLS history.

“When I reflect on the impact that great coaches have had on the success of their players – both on and off the field – we are talking about an elite group that are able to humbly balance their strengths and passions with the pressures of winning while helping players succeed and grow as people. Sigi Schmid is someone who was able to do that time and again with his players and teams and I’m honored we’re able to recognize what he meant to the Crew and to so many people, including myself,” said Crew SC Head Coach Caleb Porter. “I have often said how proud I am to be the Head Coach of this Club, with its storied history. To bring another title to Columbus that would proudly rest next to the one Sigi brought to the Black & Gold is a huge inspiration, as is always striving to be the leader and man that Sigi is remembered as.”

At the international level, Schmid served as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men’s National Team at the 1994 FIFA World Cup. He also had two stints as head coach for the U.S. Men’s Under-20 teams, from 1998-199 and in 2005. In 2015, Schmid was named to the U.S. Soccer National Soccer Hall of Fame.

Prior to his time in the professional ranks, Schmid served as head coach for UCLA from 1980-1999, leading the Bruins to three College Cup Titles (1985, 1990, 1997). During his 19 years at UCLA, Schmid posted a winning record of 322-63-33, while twice being named the NCAA Coach of the Year (1984, 1997). To date, Schmid’s .810 winning percentage during his time with the Bruins is the sixth-best in NCAA Division I History. In 1996, he was inducted into the UCLA Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the Crew SC match on June 29, which features the special Circle of Honor induction, are available via ColumbusCrewSC.com.

Crew SC begins 2-game homestand against defending MLS Cup champion Atlanta United

GAME PREVIEW WRITTEN BY David Cath & COURTESY OF COLUMBUS CREW SC COMMUNICATIONS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the third time this season, Columbus Crew SC welcomes an opponent to MAPFRE Stadium, a home that, statistically, has created the biggest advantage in Major League Soccer over the past two seasons.

Since 2017, the Crew (2-1-1, 7 pts.) have earned 86 points at home, the most of any club in the League, while holding a 1-0-1 home record this season.

Last hosting FC Dallas on March 16 en route to a 1-0 win, Saturday’s match against the defending MLS Cup champions is a good litmus test for the team as the Black & Gold look to rebound from Saturday’s result at Philadelphia.

Returning home to face the best team in the League last season, Saturday’s match certainly won’t lack energy and intensity.

Heading into Saturday, Crew SC is one of six MLS teams to concede one or fewer goals at home this season, while Atlanta (0-1-2, 2 pts.) has yet to score – or win – on the road. In prepping for Atlanta, which hosts a parody of talent across the roster, Porter said Crew SC must remain vigilant in its ability to adapt to Atlanta’s system.

Though Atlanta’s style on Saturday may vary, the system remains the same, with disrupting their ability to stay on the ball coming to the forefront.

“The guys are excited to play the MLS Cup Champions,” Crew SC head coach Caleb Porter said. “And so, what a great opportunity to bounce back and respond from the disappointment and to show that that wasn’t us and that we can be better and beat the MLS Cup Champions. I think the guys are certainly ready to make it right this weekend.”

Kickoff against Atlanta is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET on March 30 at MAPFRE Stadium. Supporters can watch the match on SportsTime Ohio, stream on the FOX Sports GO app, or listen to the English audio on ESPN Columbus 1460 AM or the Spanish Audio on ColumbusCrewSC.com.
