Add Mercedes Benz Arena to your list of “Must Visit Soccer Venues in the US”.  It’s as simple as that.  From the facility, to the affordable concessions, to the constant sell-outs there is so much to love about MBS. Luckily for NYCFC, the venue did not intimidate and the visitors left with a solid 2-2 draw retaining their undefeated record.

Mike, J.R. and Mike Allen break down the game and discuss all the key plays.  We also have quotes from Sean Johnson, Jo Inge Berget, David Villa and Alex Ring.

NYCFC are riding a hot streak into Massachusetts, but they’ve had momentum stolen from them on the frigid turf on Gilette Field in the past.  New England are unbeaten at home in their last nine games.
