COLUMBUS— Columbus Crew SC (5-9-1, 16 pts.) hosts New York City FC (4-1-7, 19 pts.) at MAPFRE Stadium, Saturday, June 1.The match begins at 7:30 p.m. ET and is set to be televised regionally on SportsTime Ohio and streamed on FOX Sports GO, featuring Neil Sika and Dwight Burgess on the call. Coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET. Tonight’s match also airs locally on the radio in English on 97.1 The Fan and streaming online via “Listen Live” at 971TheFan.com, featuring Chris Doran broadcasting the contest. The club’s official website, ColumbusCrewSC.com, is set to stream Spanish-language audio broadcast with Juan Valladares behind the microphone. The match is goalkeeper Zack Steffen’s final contest in Black & Gold as the Crew battles New York City FC for the first of three regular-season home matches for Crew SC during the month of June.

This is the final match before the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup break.

The Black & Gold are coming off of a 3-2 loss to the Colorado Rapids. In the match, Crew SC found themselves coming back from being down a goal twice before giving the final goal in the 89thminute. Forward Gyasi Zardes finds that the main takeaway from that match was the team’s ability to fight back.

New York City FC (4-1-7), they are coming off of 1-1 draw against the Chicago Fire. In the 40th minute, New York scored the equalizer when Alexandru Mitrita struck a ball from outside the box that rolled into the lower left-hand corner. This was NYCFC’s third goal scored from outside of the box, the third most in the League. Along with Mitrita, NYCFC’s goal production is led by Ismael Tajouri-Shradi and Héber, each with three goals apiece.

New York City FC provides the Black & Gold with opportunities to build confidence in their set-piece defending. So far this season, NYCFC ranks 22nd out of 24 teams having only scored two goals off of a set piece, only one of which was from an assist.

Not only does Saturday’s match provide Crew SC the opportunity to work on their set-piece defending, but it also gives the Black & Gold the chance to play against a high-tempo team, which Zardes believes will allow them to then raise their own level of play.

Going into the match, Crew SC wants to work to create spaces behind the lines. And by creating the spaces, they want to build confidence in themselves.

Along with creating chances in the box and behind lines, Crew SC also wants to focus their efforts defending set pieces. They believe that when it comes to defending set pieces a lot of the struggle is mental.

Along with the opportunities that come with playing at pace, the Black & Gold see Saturday’s match as an opportunity to build momentum going into the international break.
