NEW YORK (AP) — David Villa had two goals and an assist on “David Villa Day” and New York City FC beat Colorado 4-0 on Saturday, extending the Rapids’ losing streak to five.
It was NYCFC’s first home game after the Spanish forward scored his 400th goal in all competitions on April 29.
NYCFC (7-2-3) opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when Yangel Herrera intercepted a clearance attempt and fed it back to Maximiliano Moralez, who connected with Villa for the finish.
Ronald Matarrita made it 2-0 in the 49th minute with a putback header, and Villa fed Moralez, who finished from the top of the box in the 56th. Villa capped the scoring, bending a right-footed shot inside the far post in the 74th minute.
Colorado dropped to 2-6-2.
