New York RB vs Chicago Fire
USA – MLS
Date: Saturday, 1 May 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Harrison).
Losing two games in a row has put New York Red Bulls at the ultimate bottom of the table. The home team is yet to open their account in the new edition of MLS. After losing the opening game at home to the likes of Sporting Kansas City, they continued their losing streak on the road with LA Galaxy last time out with a 3-2 scoreline.
Chicago Fire kept the hopes alive for a good start this season after the opening draw with New England Revolution at home. However, they will visit on the back of a 3-1 loss on the road against Atlanta United last time out in their schedule. The visitor will aim to make a comeback with their narrow one-point lead over the home team on the table.
