A good away victory last time out for York, who won 2-1 against Los Angeles FC. Midfield player Malte Amundsen got a match rating of 7.64 in that game, the max score being 10.

The game was drawn at that point, but the home side still managed to pull off a 2-1 victory. The victory against Los Angeles FC came after Ismael Tajouri-Shradi's winning goal. The York manager R. Deila was very happy afterwards with the decision to bring on that player in the 67th minute.

Before that game, the home loss against Columbus Crew with the scoreline 1-2.

New England form and stats

New England play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 1-0 victory visiting Cincinnati (placed 14th).

Gil served one assist, hit ten key passes, dribled passed the opponent 1 of 2 times and had 51 successful passes (of 62 total). A victory against Cincinnati as mentioned above, but the margin of victory could have been bigger as England hit the posts three times.

A home win before that, celebrating 3-1 vs New York RB.

A quick return to home after this game, as New England are hosting New York RB in the Major League Soccer only four days away.

England have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 4 league away games 4 goals have been scored. England have conceded 5 goals in these away matches.
