Hudson River Derby
The Hudson River Derby has been a well-known rivalry throughout NYCFC’s short five seasons.
Like Johnson told reporters, “I think I expect a hard-fought match against the Red Bulls, it’s always a little bit of a different feeling compared to other league games - especially now being at their place.”
Although the first matchup of the season is on their home turf, the Road Blues have done well this season with only one loss on the road.
As they travel to New Jersey, they’ll be on their A-game trying to bring home another three points.
