2019 MLS Regular Season - Week 11
Chicago Fire vs. New England Revolution
SeatGeek Stadium — Bridgeview
May 8 - 8:00 PM ET


STREAMING: MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, on DAZN in Canada


The Chicago Fire return home after becoming the first team this season to take a point from LAFC at Banc of California Stadium and will take on a reeling New England Revolution yet to win away from Gillette Stadium this season. 


The Fire (2-4-4) bunkered down defensively, which was enough to earn a point in LA, but they haven't scored since a 4-1 victory over the Colorado Rapids on April 20, their last home game.


The Revs (2-7-2) are coming off a 6-1 defeat at Philadelphia and they've conceded 13 goals in three gams without a win. The teams played to a pair of draws in 2018, while the Fire have enjoyed a pair of lopsided victories in the previous two games in Bridgeview.
