Momentum- it is all about building momentum now for New York City FC. The club has had man down comeback draws, matches that were hard fought but not quite the result they wanted and on June 6 a comeback victory against the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park.
June 13 at Yankee Stadium against the Montreal Impact, it will now be all about the momentum and trying to build off a positive result.
One of the many rising stars of New York City FC has been Shay Facey, who has started the last three matches for the club.
Facey has been able to gain a ton of confidence with his time in Major League Soccer and has added a great presence and mentality to everything he has done.
Recording a goal for New York City FC in the match against Philadelphia were both Tommy McNamara and Patrick Mullins.
Montreal are looking to continue the great momentum they have, as the Impact have won four of their last five outings with a vital road victory over the Columbus Crew SC on Saturday.
Players to watch for are Ignacio Piatti, Andres Romero and Jack McInerney who all have three goals apiece, while Piatti has a team-high three assists.
Positive momentum has a greater meaning with each passing day, and with the possibility to shape the Eastern Conference Standings this match between NYCFC and the Montreal Impact is one that has meaning to both clubs.
The match will be broadcast on YES Network, with kickoff set for 7:00 p.m.
