Columbus started the season pretty well, showing a dominant face and having a good streak. However, things changed after they lost one of their first 13 games in the season. Injuries arrived and their plans to be the leaders of the conference were affected. At some point, people believed they were going to be out of the top-4 but Columbus bounced back and won their last two games to finish 3rd in the East.
New York finished 6th on the general scoreboard, seven points behind their crosstown rivals New York City FC. They lost the Hudson River Derby with a 5-2 smashing loss against NYCFC but could recover and earned a huge W over Toronto FC on Decision Day. They must be flying right now and Columbus should be careful with New York. They can shock everybody and beat the Crew today.
