The New York City FC and New England Revolution meet Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.
The New York City FC hope to find some consistency after getting off to a rocky 1-1-1 start this season. After scoring four goals in their season-opening victory, New York City FC has scored just two goals in its last two home games despite having two players with five or more shots on goal. New York City FC has to be more efficient on the offensive end if they’re going to make a run in the Eastern Conference. David Villa leads New York with two goals, Mix Diskerud has two assists and Tony Taylor has six shots. Defensively, Josh Saunders has come away with 11 saves on 18 shots faced. The New York City FC have lost three of their last six regular season home games.
The New England Revolution are still looking for their first win after a poor 0-1-2 start. The Revolution have been shutout in each of their last two matches and have just one player with more than two shots on goal. Like New York, the Revolution have to find something on the offensive end in order to get an important victory. Diego Fagundez leads New England with one goal, Lee Nguyen has nine shots and Juan Agudelo has five shots. Defensively, Bobby Shuttleworth has come away with 10 saves on 17 shots faced. The New England Revolution have lost three of their last five regular season road games.
The New England Revolution have won two of their three meetings against New York City FC and has outscored them 4-1 in the last two matches. New York City FC did beat the Revolution in March, 2-0.
The New England Revolution can’t find the back of the net and haven’t been great on the road dating back to last season. New York City FC has to win at home eventually, right? Give me New York in a victory.
