Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The Bronx Blues squandered a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw against Orlando City last weekend. Ebenezer Ofori and Alexander Ring handed NYCFC a two goal lead on their travels, only for the hosts two score two goals of their own in the second half.

DC United got their campaign off to the perfect start with a 2-0 win over defending champions Atlanta United.

Luciano Acosta inspired the Black-and-Red to a morale boosting win in Washington. Acosta, who came close to joining PSG in January, teed up Paul Arriola for the opener before finding the back of the net himself in the US capital.

Last season, DC earned a 1-1 draw in New York before claiming a 3-1 win at home thanks to a brace from Wayne Rooney and a solitary strike from Acosta.
