Game Preview: New England Revolution at Chicago Fire

May 7, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - New England Revolution News Release

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Revolution (2-7-2, 8 pts.) will take on the Chicago Fire (2-4-4, 10 pts.) on Wednesday, May 8 at SeatGeek Stadium to conclude a three-game road swing. The match kicks off at 8:00 p.m. ET and will be televised locally on NBC Sports Boston, with Brad Feldman and Paul Mariner calling the action. Authenticated subscribers may also stream the match on NBCSportsBoston.com and on the NBC Sports app. The contest airs locally on the radio with 98.5 The Sports Hub HD2 broadcasting the action in English and 1260 AM Nossa Radio providing Portuguese commentary.

Entering Wednesday's match, first-year Revs forward Juan Fernando Caicedo will look to carry his scoring form into Chicago, as the 29-year-old Colombian striker has now scored three goals in the club's last two matches. The last time the Revs traveled to the Windy City, Teal Bunbury scored an 82nd-minute equalizer off of a Diego Fagundez assist to claim one point on June 9, 2018. The club holds an all-time mark of 21-27-12 against the Fire and will look for its first win at SeatGeek Stadium since 2013.

Following the mid-week test, the Revolution will return home for the season's only meeting with the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, May 11 at Gillette Stadium. That match will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Boston, 98.5 The Sports Hub, and 1260 AM Nossa Radio.
