Fire history vs. Rapids
Chicago holds an 11-6-3 advantage in regular season contests against the Rapids, which includes a current five-game unbeaten streak (4-0-1) -- the longest in the series. Wednesday's match will be the second of three contests between the Fire and Rapids in 2004, but it will mark the only meeting between the two sides in Denver. A Nate Jaqua goal in the 66th minute would be all the scoring in the first match-up between the two teams, a 1-0 Fire win at Soldier Field on May 29. The Fire and Colorado will wrap up their season series next month when the Fire welcomes the Rapids to Soldier Field on Aug. 14.
