MLS Preview: New York Red Bulls - Columbus Crew

MLS Preview: New York Red Bulls - Columbus Crew

Rick Osentoski

Both teams will be seeking three points, with New York coming off back-to-back ties and Columbus having drawn four straight matches.

It's safe to say the New York Red Bulls and Columbus Crew will be hungry for the full three points Saturday.

New York has played to back-to-back ties while Columbus has drawn four straight matches going into the teams' meeting Saturday at Red Bull Arena (7 p.m. ET, MLS Live). The teams boast identical 4-5-8 records and are tied for the Eastern Conference's final playoff slot.

The match could see Columbus' Costa Rican duo of Giancarlo Gonzalez and Waylon Francis return to action after the Ticos' run to the World Cup quarterfinals ended last weekend, though New York's Roy Miller is sidelined by an ankle injury.

Red Bulls midfielder Dax McCarty seems poised to return from a knee problem, while the Crew will be without midfielder Hector Jimenez for six to eight weeks because of an MCL tear.
