  DID YOU KNOW?
  • This is the first match of the season for New England, which was the odd team out in last week's opening festivities.
  • Chicago is currently last in MLS on goal difference after going down 4-0 to defending MLS Cup champ LA.

  • New England forward Chad Barrett started his career in the windy city and spent four years with the Fire, helping them to the 2006 U.S. Open Cup.
  • Last year, the Revs tied (with Columbus) for fewest goals allowed by a non-playoff team, giving up just 44.
