New York City FC managed to come back from 1-0 to beat Vancouver Whitecaps 3-2 thanks to two goals from David Villa.
It was the Whitecaps who took the lead as early as the 1st minute when Rivero took advantage of a too frequent error from City’s goalkeeper to open the scoring.
However, New York City FC will come back into the game and keep possession well. They will be rewarded in the 35th minute when David Villa will score from long range. He benefited from a superb pass from Khiry Shelton.
Villa will add another goal 6 minutes later when he will connect well with an Andrea Pirlo’s corner to give his team a well-deserved lead.
After the break, the Whitecaps will try to come back into the game and will put City under pressure. As it was too often this season, New York City FC will concede a goal when under pressure. Bolanos will be awarded a penalty. The City goalkeeper will save the first shot from Bolanos but will not be able to do anything on the rebound.
