Major League Soccer makes its New York City debut today, as New York City FC plays its home opener at Yankee Stadium against the New England Revolution (5pm, ESPN).
NYCFC comes in off a season-opening tie against Orlando City, in a match Jason Kreis’ side came close to winning before a Kaka free kick spoiled the result. The Revs come in off a humbling season-opening loss to Seattle. MLS Best XI midfielder Lee Nguyen is back in the starting lineup after missing the opener.
The MLS schedule features a compelling night cap, as the LA Galaxy travel to Portland to take on the Timbers at Providence Park. The Galaxy looked good in their season-opening win against the Chicago Fire. The Timbers were forced to settle for a home draw against Real Salt Lake in a match they had the better of the chances, but couldn’t beat Nick Rimando.
