New England Revolution will be disappointed with their performance against Montreal Impact. They started the game brightly, and it wasn’t long before Kei Kamara gave New England the lead in the eighteenth minute. New England doubled their lead in the thirty-third minute as again Kei Kamara popped up, linking well with Chris Tierney to scored his second goal of the game. Montreal clawed a goal back before half-time through Michael Salazar, and it was Salazar who levelled matters shortly after the second half started in the forty-eighth minute. Montreal then dealt the fatal blow as Ignacio Piatti converted a Penalty kick in the fifty-fourth minute as Brad Knighton brought Piatti down in the area. Now they face New York City FC, a game they have held their own in and have not lost in the last three head to head fixtures.
New York City FC sent visitors New York Red Bulls packing as they managed to defeat them 2-0. This was a much-needed win for New York City, as previously Red Bulls had them with a seven-goal devastation. Jack Harrison soon got matters underway as he netted home in the eighth minute to give City the lead. Despite Red Bull pressing the game, City was a lot more comfortable than in their previous meeting and showed much better organisation and concentration. The second half was a similar performance, and it was David Villa who gave City a two-goal lead as he hit home in the sixty-sixth minute of the game to send Red Bulls packing. Now facing New England Revolution, City will be looking to continue their current run of good form as they are now three wins from three.
New England Revolution is missing Charlie Davies (right abductor strain), Gershon Koffie (right knee sprain), Donnie Smith (right hamstring strain), Juan Agudelo (right knee sprain) and possibly Femi Hollinger-Janzen (right hamstring strain) and Darrius Barnes (right hip strain).

New York City FC is without Connor Brandt (bilateral hip arthroscopy), Steven Mendoza (core injury) and possibly Ethan White (adductor strain) and Federico Bravo (strained quad).
