Home Field Advantage
Reasons to believe...
NYC’s home form has been as good as any other MLS team’s in 2018, with just one defeat in the Bronx this year (tied for fewest in the league).
We took 2.4 points per game at home this year, allowing just 0.6 goals per game and scoring 2.1 on average.
Dating back to last season, we have lost just one of our last 21 home games (14 W 6D), keeping nine clean sheets and allowing multiple goals just twice in that span.
In a two-legged match, with away goals in play, getting a positive result at home to take to Atlanta will be key if we’re to advance to our first-ever Conference final vs. Columbus Crew or Red Bulls.
