Two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference are clashing against one another on Saturday, when New York City FC will play host to New England. New York City are coming off a loss that put an end to their unbeaten streak, while New England are looking to keep their own streak intact after this trip.
New York City (9-6-4) were not very accurate in their away match against Philadelphia last week, and they eventually lost by 1-0. That loss put an end to their 5-match unbeaten streak (3-0-2). They are currently sitting at the 5th spot of the Eastern Conference with 31 points after 19 matches, scoring 34 and conceding 19 goals so far, which is the best defense in the Conference. They have been really good at home so far (7-2-1), scoring 24 and conceding 8 goals, which are the 2nd best home offense and the 2nd best home defense in the Eastern Conference.
New England (15-3-4) are having a tremendous season so far, and they are coming off a really strong 4-1 home win over Cincinnati. They have now won 4 in a row and are unbeaten in their last 9 matches (8-0-1), but keeping just 3 clean sheets in the process. New England are still leading the Eastern Conference with 49 points, scoring 44 (best offense) and conceding 26 goals in the process. The Revs also have the best away record in the Conference (6-2-3), scoring 21 and conceding 14 goals, while Both Teams scored in 7 of those 11 matches.
