Familiar Foe

It’s a vastly different-looking NYCFC squad facing off against the team who ended our first MLS Playoffs run in 2016, but for the fans, memories of that painful semifinal defeat will still provide some extra surge of motivation from the bleachers.

This TFC side showed their quality to rout D.C. United after extratime in the First Round last weekend and will hope that the positive momentum carries them through to victory over New York once again.

Greg Vanney’s side were one of only two Eastern Conference sides NYCFC failed to defeat in the regular season, but like The Ringleader said on Fan Appreciation Night:  “Let’s make sure teams know… when they come to New York there’s nothing to get.”
