While D.C. United won the first meeting between these teams this season, New York City FC won 2–1 at home against D.C. United in June.
In that match, D.C. United took the early lead, then New York City FC scored goals at the 83-minute mark and then at the 94-minute mark, seconds before the final whistle, to claim the comeback victory.
These clubs sit in the midst of a logjam in the Eastern Conference, as third place and 10th place are separated by just eight points with two weeks to go in the season.
