How to Watch: Crew vs Chicago Fire

Everything you need to know to watch the Black & Gold’s match against the Chicago Fire

MLS: Chicago Fire at New England Revolution Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

The Columbus Crew looks to close out a double game week with six points and continue to climb the Eastern Conference standings. After a gutsy 1-0 win against Inter Miami this past Wednesday, the Crew is now looking ahead to the team’s match against the Chicago Fire. The visitors played the New England Revolution to a 0-0 draw during the week, earning a valuable point on the road.

Chicago hopes to get a bit of revenge in this game on Saturday. In the reverse fixture earlier this year, the Fire had a first half 2-0 lead disappear due to a plethora of substitutes by the Black & Gold in the second half. Columbus winger Derrick Eteinne Jr. scored a brace off of the bench and forward Cucho Hernandez scored his first goal for the Crew on his debut to give the Black & Gold a 3-2 come from behind win.

Let’s take a look at what you need to know to tune in for this game.
