The two teams are currently locked together in mid-table in the Eastern Conference with 11 points from eight games each.
NYCFC were in action on Wednesday evening, when they beat Chicago Fire 1-0 through an early goal from their young Argentinean forward Valentin Castellanos. Maximiliano Moralez could have added a late second goal for New York City, but missed a stoppage-time penalty.
Having gone six games at the start of the season with recording a win, NYCFC have now had back-to-back wins in their last two games. They’ve been draw specialists this season prior to that, finishing tied in five games and losing just once all season to date.
The Lions could benefit from not having been in action since last weekend, when they won 1-0 at home to the Vancouver Whitecaps. They had to wait until the last couple of minutes to make the breakthrough, with their veteran marquee signing Nani scoring the goal.
