Chicago Fire vs Columbus Crew

Saturday, April 7th, 2018

MLS Week 6 | Toyota Park, Bridgeview IL

Referee: Jair Marrufo

4th Official: Victor Rivas

VAR: Kevin Terry Jr


The Men In Red head into their fourth game of the season still looking for a win. They’re hoping tonight will be the night as they suit up for what may be one of their final meetings with That Yellow Team. But the Crew head into Chicago on good form, with new signing Gyasi Zardes firing on all cylinders and all their top guys healthy and available. The Fire’s past home record against Columbus notwithstanding, this is going to be a considerable challenge for the home side.
