An 123 day span of time had passed since NYCFC last took to a field for competitive soccer but this match bore a lot of similarities to the last, despite all that has happened in between.

Against Tigres in March, NYCFC gave a good account of themselves and played some beautiful football through the lines of the pitch but came up short on a goal and paid the price with a narrow defeat on a second half goal.

This was the story of the day against Philadelphia as NYCFC dominated possession (59.5%), shots (17-8) and expected goals (1.74 – 0.39) but were unable to find a way onto the scoresheet.

A frustrating defeat but not one that is terminal to City’s tournament hopes, with fate still very much in our own hands going into game 2 on Tuesday.
