Columbus Crew advance despite second-leg loss to NYCFC

The Columbus Crew came out on top against New York City FC 4-3 on aggregate despite losing the second leg 2-0 at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. "But it's not impossible".

But with Maxim Chanot missing due to hernia surgery and Callens serving a suspension for his red card, Vieira's group will face a daunting challenge without its best two center backs. "So everything's got to come together on Sunday". It won Tuesday after advancing from the knockout round on penalties following a 0-0 draw at Atlanta United.

NY came into Sunday's second leg needing at minimum a three-goal win after falling 4-1 to the Crew in the first leg. The chances came fast and furious after that for NYCFC, Moralez heading wide at the back post before Jack Harrison shot tamely at Zack Steffen in the Columbus goal and Wallace smashing one off the post from very close range.

"I think from a quality standpoint, I think that was an wonderful goal, so we were excited about that", Columbus Crew sporting director and head coach Gregg Berhalter said after Sunday's match.

"We knew the crowd was going to be behind them".

At the time, City were knocking for a third goal, which would have been enough to throw the game in their favour. "We knew it wasn't going to be an easy game, so that goal was big".

The difficulty of completing any three-goal victory in MLS has the Crew SC feeling confident.

"We knew the size of the field".

"We had a good moment, and all the team enjoyed the moment", Columbus midfielder Pedro Santos said. "It's an important game for us and we will all be ready".
