Heading into the long international break for the MLS, Columbus was on a high, and currently sit 6th in the eastern conference after 7 games.

Chicago has not had a very good start to the season. They sit on just 4 points from their first 7 games. They currently sit in 13th place in the eastern Conference. The Fire will look to spoil a spectacular night for the Crew as they say goodbye to the first soccer-specific stadium in MLS, ahead of their new stadium opener at Lower.com Field. Kick-off for this match is set for 7:30 pm, with post-game fireworks to follow the match.
