The Crew will look to rebound from two disappointing losses against the Red Bulls last season when the two sides meet on Saturday (4:00 p.m. ET/NBC Sports Network). Here is a look back at the 2012 edition of the Columbus versus New York matchup.
A Kenny Cooper brace within the first 15 minutes of the match spelled doom early for the Black & Gold. Thierry Henry added two more as the Crew fell 4-1. The late Kirk Urso earned the only assist of his career, finding an open Chad Marshall on a late corner kick.
A third-minute goal from Milovan Mirosevic wasn't enough to help the Crew to a road result as Henry once again tallied twice and added an assist against the Black & Gold. The Crew was without newcomer Federico Higuaín for most of the match as the Argentine rested a sore heel, but entered as a substitute in the 90th minute.
