It’s been a promising first month of the year for Bob Bradley's side, who’ve re-signed several veterans, kept hold of superstar Carlos Vela and notched some decent scrimmage performances in recent weeks.
Most recently, the Black & Gold defeated star-studded Japanese visitors Vissel Kobe 4-1 on Thursday in an entertaining evening at “The Banc,” an outing they’ll look to replicate against Columbus.

The goals have been harder to come by for Crew SC, who’ve scored just one goal in their first two preseason matches – but on the bright side, they’ve yet to concede, posting clean sheets in both affairs, the first a scoreless draw with Vissel Kobe and the second a 1-0 win over Club Tijuana on Thursday.
New coach Caleb Porter expressed optimism about his early work with the “Yellow Football Team,” suggesting that they’re ahead of schedule in terms of their preseason tactical periodization process.
