The MLS regular season takes a brief intermission on Tuesday night as the Chicago Fire travel to take on the Michigan Bucks of the Premier Development League. The Fire lost in the title game of the U.S. Open Cup last season, and won the title last in 2006. The game offers a nice chance for Chicago to get back to its winning ways after the team fell to the Columbus Crew 2-1 on May 26.

Based on recent history, the Fire should certainly expect to score a victory. MLS teams are 5-1-1 all-time against Premier Development League clubs.

This will be the first meeting ever between the two teams. The Fire are 30-7-2 all-time in the U.S. Open Cup, while the Bucks enter the game 10-7-1.

Game time/date: Tuesday, May 28, 6:30 p.m. CT
