NY City is in first place in the Eastern Conference with 38 points accumulated in 25 rounds, goal difference 43-43. In the final stage of the draw, away, against those of Colombus Crew 3-3. After Missed play-off last year, City changed coach, bringing him Vieira and is now in pole position right to enter directly into the quarter-finals. However, some things have not changed from last year. The worst aspect remains defensive. Despite having lost only two of the last 10 games of the championship, both away, City took goal in seven of them. Then respect the fans. You first, but you lost 0-7 and 1-4 to city rival, Red Bull. You have to do something special for him to win back fans. Especially in the case of Lampard, who was whistled few occasions parties at home.
LA Galaxy is in third place in the Western Conference with 38 points collected in 23 matches, goal difference 38-23. In the last round, he drew at home against the Colorado Rapids at 1-1. It is unbeaten in 11 matches of the championship. Nor is it surprising to you lot have. A. Cole, Gerrard, Keane R. and G. dos Santos are the most important names in the group of Los Angeles. Scored a goal in each of their last 10 games, the Galaxy have the second best offense in the conference after FC Dallas (39), band that has but two extra disputes. Away team is more “sober”, only won 14 points in 11 games.
As part of two different conferences are not many direct meetings. Only one, last season, on the ground in Los Angeles. Galaxy was required then 5-1. Whether for home or travel games, City have problems in defense and in front of players like Keane or dos Santos, this probably will not be forgiven. Many quality players and two offensive formidable. Sure we will see goals.
