Going in, the Crew lead this series, 32-31-11 at MAPFREE, the Crew dominate by far, 20-12-6. Looking to even it up Sunday, then taking the overall lead are the NYRB, Supporters Shield winners, most points EVER and many other accolades earned this 2018 season. Having almost twice the win total as their opponent, the 14-11-9 Crew would have one think it is quite the mismatch. See how it plays out Sunday at 3p.m. On ESPN, ESPN Deportes & NYRB Radio with Spanish coverage on TuneIn. This now makes it a trio of times these two original MLS clubs have met up in this 2 legged series and a total of 4 times overall in the post season. NYRB have dropped the last 2 2nd season match ups, even the last meeting, at RBA was taken by the Crew in July, 3-2. Peaking at just the right time, NYRB come in super hot with a 5 game winning streak, 4 by shutout, amassing the best road wins ever by 8, going 8-5-4 out of town. With 17 one goal games, NY is no stranger to tight games and have a 12 wins in such games tops in MLS, 6 of 7 losses are by one goal. Nov. 11 it is back to the friendly confines of RBA time and coverages TBA from RBA.
