Rapids Vs. Fire Preview: Chicago Looks For First Road Victory

The Chicago Fire are traveling west to visit the Colorado Rapids on Sunday

Presswire

The Chicago Fire are traveling west to visit the Colorado Rapids on Sunday as the early portion of the MLS season rolls on. The Fire are currently 1-0-1 on the season and a win would help to push them away from the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference standings.

Chicago's season opener against Montreal ended in a 1-1 draw after the Fire's Dominic Oduro scored the game-tying goal in the 71st minute. That was followed up by a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union that saw Oduro score the game's only goal.

The Rapids are currently 2-0-1 on the season, but they're coming off a rough 4-1 defeat on the road against the New York Red Bulls. Colorado had won its previous two games against Columbus and Philadelphia to begin the season.
