It's the fourth chapter of the Hell is Real Derby this season and FC Cincinnati are hoping for their first win against the rival Columbus Crew when the teams meet Wednesday night at Nippert Stadium.
FC Cincinnati (3W-10L-4D) are now goalless in five straight matches following a 1-0 home loss to Toronto FC, their fourth consecutive defeat. Columbus (9W-3L-4D) are winless in their last three after a 2-1 defeat to the Montreal Impact in Week 16.
The Crew have dominated the series, with a pair of lopsided victories this year, including a 3-0 win at MAPFRE Stadium in the last meeting Sept. 6. The teams played to a 0-0 draw in the only match at Nippert Stadium on August 29.
