NYCFC has won each of its last five games in the 2024 MLS, with their most recent game resulting in a 5-1 win over San Jose. The New Yorkers want to keep the good run going, but it won’t be easy as they’re playing against the defending MLS champions, Columbus Crew.

On the bright side for NYCFC, the match with Columbus is taking place on their turf, which is where they are 7-2-2 against this opponent.

New York City FC Playing Amazing Soccer Lately

New York City FC won eight of the last 10 MLS games. NYCFC won each of the last five games in the league, including those against Philadelphia Union and New York Red Bulls. In their most recent game, they destroyed the Earthquakes 5-1.

Apart from being in great form, they have other reasons to feel good about the June 14 game. One of those reasons is that they’ve got a very good record against Columbus Crew. They beat them in seven of the 11 MLS games played in New York. Last season, however, both of their duels ended in a draw.

Columbus Crew Want to Bounce Back After a Loss in CCC Final

On the second day of June, the Columbus Crew lost 3-0 to Pachuca in the Final of the CONCACAF Champions Cup (CCC). The Mexican team was just better throughout the game. The good news for Columbus is that there are no such tough games on their schedule in the MLS, at least not in the near future.

Sure, they are supposed to play against Inter Miami after the game with NYCFC, but Lionel Messi – as well as a few other stars – will not play for the Herons due to Copa America duties.

What this means is that Columbus Crew stands a very good chance to improve its position in the standings of the 2024 MLS Eastern Conference. This goes especially for the fact that the Crew have played three games fewer than the two teams sitting above them in the standings.

New York City FC vs. Columbus Crew Prediction

Columbus Crew is just better than New York City FC. Sure, NYCFC is in great form, which is why we expect to see a real battle on the field on June 14. That’s why we expect to see goals on both ends in the New York City FC vs. Columbus Crew game, but who’s gonna win? We think it’s going to be the visiting team.
