New York Red Bulls vs Chicago Fire

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

MLS Week 8 | Red Bull Arena, Harrison NJ

Kickoff: 2:30pm CT

Referee: Robert Sibiga

Assistant Referees: Corey Parker, TJ Zablocki

4th Official: Jose Carlos Rivero

VAR: Jorge Gonzalez


The 2018 season has definitely not lived up to expectations for the Chicago Fire. While injuries have definitely played a role, this team is just not the best version of itself at the moment. In the midst of this weak start to the campaign, the Fire now face a difficult trip east to face the Red Bulls. The Fire are nursing a seven-game winless streak against RBNY, most recently dropping a 4-0 deuce in the MLS Cup Playoffs last year. Needless to say, the Men In Red have their work cut out for them.
