There's been ups and downs for these two teams so far this season, occupying positions near the middle of the Major League Soccer table so far. Here's the New England - New York City latest:

Both teams have had enough rest since their last competitive action. Let's hope for an energetic game!

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on artifical turf and that the visiting New York City have a different surface at their stadium (grass). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on artifical turf is 3-2-4 (win-draw-loss) from nine matches.

Impressive finishing from Alexander Ring and Anton Tinnerholm secured the home win 2-1 against Cincinnati in their previous game. Preceding that game, the 0-0 draw paying a visit to DC United.

There's been a serious shortage of goals from New York City's away games in the league this season with only 3 goals from 6 matches. York's manager R.
