Hudson River Derby: A special game for all

It’s not a game like any other. The New York derby is a different game, a special match. The derby is a different game, very much felt by the teams, by the clubs and especially by the fans.

There are a lot of expectations for the Hudson River Derby. A game that also hides different curiosities. The first is that the coaches are both different from the last played derby. Domènec Torrent on the bench of the City arrived in the place of Patrick Vieira gone to the OGC Nice. On the Red Bulls bench was announced last Friday Chris Armas in place of Jesse Marsch passed at Red Bulls Leipzig.

The Red Bulls won the first of the three regular-season meetings in May, 4-0, at Red Bull Arena, and also defeated NYCFC by the same score a month later in the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup.

For this reason, we expect an exciting derby, with NYCFC eager to rebuild after the bad defeats remedied this season and with the New York Red Bulls who instead want to continue their positive series in the derby and maintain the dominance of the City. It will be a game where the desire to win and to make the difference.

In both teams there are several absences, but the derby goes further. Despite the City hardly recovered David Villa and the Red Bulls will not have Kyle Duncan and Vincent Bezecourt, who will play will feel the pressure of a vital match for the fans. Among those who want to return to win after a long time and who still wants to be the first in New York.
