- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew90+: Magee takes a deep shot as Gruenebaum makes a nice save. #Crew96
- Bob O'Shaughnessy@oshaughnessyWe gave this one away. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew90+: Oduro tries to sneak one in but is wide right. #Crew96
- Chicago Fire WUFC@FireWUFCFour minutes added time? You're killing me smalls!! #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrewFour minutes of added time. #Crew96
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch4' extra time #cf97
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch89' CLB Sub - Meram for Barson #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew88': #Crew96 sub Meram on for Barson
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatchDuka back on the field #cf97
- Jeremy Mikula@jeremymikulaDilly Duka landed very awkwardly on his ankle. Looks in genuine pain as he's helped off the pitch #cf97
- 88'FJustin MeramDChad Barson
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatchDuka down on the field #cf97
- Mark Bernhardt@mbernhardt6Why is there never a sub make to get better connection between the defense and offense? More forwards won't fix poor service. #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew84': Higuain's free kick finds Schoenfeld who heads the ball just over the goal. #Crew96
- Chicago Fire WUFC@FireWUFCAaa and again. Dom flops, they get the ball. Sigh. #cf97
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraF!re defensive strategy for Oduro - just push him down. #crew96
- Lauren Griswold@lgriz9View photoGreat seeing #cf97 trending! #CLBvsCHI
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew82': Anor smashes one and hits the side-netting. Half the stadium thought he scored. Tough angle on the shot. #Crew96
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraWow. that was a fantastic buildup there. Just off target by Anor. #crew96
- Cody Sharrett@CodySharrettSean Johnson has been stellar tonight. Dom did great work in the box to create his own chance there. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew81': #Crew96 substitution - Schoenfeld for Sanchez.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew80': Johnson continuing to stand on his head. Oduro with another shot from the left wing, big save from Chicago's keeper. #Crew96
- 80'FAaron SchoenfeldM#8Matías Sánchez
- Chris LaMacchia@chrislamacchiaSo, uh, Robert? Wanna make a sub, maybe? Change the game up a bit? #Crew96
- 77'M#8Matías Sánchez (Columbus Crew SC) is shown the yellow card.
- petro62@petro62I vote Sean Johnson doesn't have to make anymore saves tonight. #cf97
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyGotta love dynamic standings. Crew was up to third in East when ahead, now down to sixth after allowing two. #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew73': Higuain puts a shot on-frame, but Johnson comes up with another nice save. This time diving low to his left. #Crew96 trails 2-1.
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraI hate that sequence of headers by #crew96 defense. That usually leads to bad giveaways and goals by the other team.
- 70'MPatrick NyarkoM#26Joel Lindpere
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew67': Big shot from Higuain! Johnson springs into action to make a great save, could have been the equalizer #Crew96 needs.
- Patrick Murphy@PMurph77While that was most certainly a handball in the box from my view, it's sad that's what #crew96 now must rely on for goals.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew66': Looked to have been a clear handball there in Chicago's area, but no call from the referee. Cries of discontent from #Crew96 Stadium.
- Chow@chow3Elbow to the head not a card. Kicking the ball away = Yellow. Got it. #cf97
- Nate Beckman@4castnateIMO, Arrieta being misused on the left flank. He's a forward, needs to play there. Instead, he's saddled with defensive chores. #crew96
- 65'DBakary Soumaré (Chicago Fire FC) is shown the yellow card.
- Mark Bernhardt@mbernhardt6I keep waiting for us to have some meaningful offensive possession this half so I can get a feel for how we are doing. Isn't coming. #crew96
- Lou Kroth@LukeRoth13Being in the Nordecke at the Crew game is by far one of the best sporting experiences of my life #crew96
- 60'DGonzalo Segares (Chicago Fire FC) is shown the yellow card.
- Patrick Guldan@GuldanMR#Crew96 desperately need someone to calm this team down. They are chasing furiously without much to show for it.
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch59' - #cf97 substitution as Maicon Santos enters for Chris Rolfe.
- 59'F#29Maicon SantosFChris Rolfe
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew56': Duka with another dangerous run on the right flank, but Barson is there to clear a good cross. #Crew96
- brendan hannan@brendanhannanJ-Daddy Lindpere dropping dimes. Dilly Duka scores against his old team. Magee becomes the second chesty. #cf97
- Jeff Harbert@jharbert7And just like that, Mike Magee scores his sixth straight goal in as many appearances for #cf97. 2-1!
- Laura Jiménez@cosianfirula17View photoSecond one for the fire!!!!!! ⚽
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyJosh Williams has been the closest defender on both Chicago goals. #crew96
- JPG@FCSchadenfreudeOh, Frank. Whatever you did in the dressing room, thank you. Thank you. #cf97
- Chicago Fire WUFC@FireWUFCGOOOOAAALLLL. FIRE!!! #cf97

- Jeff Crandall@JefeCrandallWelcome back to Columbus Dilly! #cf97
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyWhen Duka's name is announced, he is roundly booed by the #crew96 fans.
- 52'1 - 1MGOAL: Dilly DukaGoals this Season: 1
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondView photo
- Chicago Fire WUFC@FireWUFCTime to being on Patrick and send off Joel. Please and thank you. #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew48': Lindpere receives a caution for a hard foul on Higuain. #Crew96
- Nik Bajaj@ChiFireEyedBoyI'm liking the tough and motivated attitude from the ginger ninja today. #cf97
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch47' - Magee showin' some magic on the left flank, combines well with Soumare and draws a foul. Paladini's restart ALMOST finds Berry. #cf97
- 48'M#26Joel Lindpere (Chicago Fire FC) is shown the yellow card.
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatchNo subs, either side #cf97
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatchAnd we're off here in the second half! #cf97
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyHiguain's 4 goals via PK are tied for third-most in #crew96 single-season history. Record is 5 shared by Mendoza ('11) and Schelotto ('10)
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyFour of the Crew's 19 goals this season have come via the penalty spot, all of which have been scored by Higuain. #crew96
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch44' - Arrieta gets a yellow card for an in air collision with Larentowicz #cf97
- Michael in AZ@MichaeltheG1C'mon backline, I know Dilly is your homeboy but he's wearing the other teams strip these days. #Crew96 needs to mark him tight
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew45': Caution issued to #Crew96's Arrieta.
- 45'MJairo Arrieta (Columbus Crew SC) is shown the yellow card.
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch43' - Duka capitalizes on an errant ball, crosses and just misses his man #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew43': Duka's cross goes across the goal just out of the reach of Paladini. Goal kick #Crew96.
- Jeremy Mikula@jeremymikula#cf97 making plenty of mistakes at every phase of the game. In the back, midfield, decision making, etc. Need a good, solid regroup at half.
- yaneka9@yaneka9View photo#crew96
- Chicago Fire WUFC@FireWUFCYou CANNOT take chances like that with a guy as fast as Dom. Baky passed back to Sean who JUST knocks it away from Dom. #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew38': Oduro tries to go after the back pass as Johnson clears the ball before he gets there. #Crew96
- Patrick Guldan@GuldanMRThis game has slowed down quite a bit. #Crew96 not doing much in possession without a lot of off the ball running.
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch34' - Duka takes a shot from inside, saved by Gruenebaum #cf97
- Chicago Fire WUFC@FireWUFCIf Lindpere could find a way to keep the ball in possession or maybe make a play, that'd be greeeeeaaat. #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew33': Gruenebaum with a great save to his right from a Duka shot. #Crew96
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch32' - Oduro maneuvers his way into the box, shot saved by Johnson #cf97
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardy33' Crew on the counter and Oduro gets off a shot that is easily saved. Crowd roars whenever he accelerates to full speed. #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew32': Higuain tries his luck from 30 yards, but his attempt is high of the mark. #Crew96 continues its good offensive movement, up 1-0.
- Mark Bernhardt@mbernhardt6Oduro with some fight in him. He has definitely proven to be a good addition. #crew96
- Cody Sharrett@CodySharrettJust a hunch, but I don't foresee Rolfe or Magee winning anything in the air tonight. #Crew96
- Chicago Fire WUFC@FireWUFCAnd Big Ginger made a valiant effort that was just wide. #cf97
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardy29' Looks like Arrieta and Oduro have swapped roles. Arrieta up top, Oduro on the left. #crew96
- Evan Stahr@russiansubsAnd now they broke Pause. The ref doesn't care. I feel like it shouldn't be possible to hate another team this much. #cf97
- jeanaharrington@jeanaharringtonView photoFirst @columbuscrew game!! #crew96
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch27' - #cf97 Sub Larentowicz for Pause
- Jim@books_and_beerI think I have more confidence in Austin Berry the closer he is to the opposing goal. #cf97
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardy25' Bernardo Anor skies for a long ball but comes down flat on his back. Trainer checking him out. #crew96
- 26'M#18Jeff LarentowiczMLogan Pause
- Alex Caulfield@Alex_CaulfieldBetting tonight's #Crew96 attendance is higher than last week's season-high (18,320). Great atmosphere here tonight, stadium is rockin'.
- Suvat@SuvatJonas98Friedrich, please come back soon #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew23': Higuain free kick from 35 yards finds Williams, but his header is high of Johnson's goal. #Crew96
- Jeremy Mikula@jeremymikula#cf97's passing has been poor through the first 20. Need to get Pause and Paladini the ball more in the middle of the pitch.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew19': Anor plays a nice chip through to Oduro, who nearly breaks through Chicago's area once again. #Crew96 controlling this one, up 1-0.
- Nate Beckman@4castnate#Crew96 need to watch out for Duka running rampant down the R side. Arrieta not used to defensive duties & Wahl probably can't contain him.
- ChiFireMatch@ChiFireMatch16' - Segares chips the ball over the top of the defense for Lindpere but the Estonian's ensuing cross is cleared by the Crew defense. #cf97
- Evan Stahr@russiansubsApparently Duka winning the ball fairly and Johnson getting only air are fouls, but Anibaba getting shoved isn't. #cf97
- julzperrine04@julzperrine04View photoTheir first game! #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew12': #Crew96 leading 1-0 after Higuain's penalty. Arrieta drifting between left wing and forward, Anor on the right. Oduro up top.
- Suvat@SuvatJonas98Magee is getting space. That will do. Come on Rolfe, impress me tonight. The way things are going, you'll need to #cf97
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraF!re unleashing a flurry of attacks here. Bit unnerving. #crew96
- Anthony Zilis@adzilisBerry almost gets it back. We'll see if he has another goal in him today... #cf97
- protom18@protom18View photo#penalty #kick #crew96 #mls #vs #fire #goallllllllllllllll
- Anthony Zilis@adzilisBerry makes another terrible mistake in the back. Johnson could've gotten a red. Don't know if he made contact, though.... #cf97
- Steve Sanders@mtziongamerSecond replay on that penalty shows Johnson didn't touch Oduro #cf97
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew7': Higuain converts the penalty, #Crew96 Stadium explodes. Exactly the start the Black & Gold were looking for.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardy7' Higuain blasts the penalty home and celebrates in front of the Nordecke with Matias Sanchez on his back. #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew7': #Crew96 goal!
- Cody Sharrett@CodySharrettPENALTY! Johnson takes Oduro in the box! Should probably be a red, but Johnson only sees yellow. #Crew96
- 7'1 - 0FGOAL: Federico Higuaín (PK)Goals this Season: 5
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew6': #Crew96 penalty!
- 6'G#1Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire FC) is shown the yellow card.
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondOdd after last week's win against Montreal that Arrieta would get the start, especially considering he's only back with #Crew96 for 10 days.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingWiredWeird: Anor out right as we begin, Oduro up top. We'll see how this goes. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew2': Starting out it looks like Arrieta and Oduro are playing up top together for the time being, Higuain underneath. #Crew96
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyThis would be the first time Jairo Arrieta has not played forward in his Crew career. #crew96
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyLooks like Dominic Oduro is up top and Jairo Arrieta is on the left. #crew96
- Brett Clapper@baclapAnother W tonight and we’re right back in the mix #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew1': We're off, big three points on the line tonight at #Crew96 between these two old rivals.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrewIn case you missed it earlier #Crew96 winger Ben Speas is out due to illness. Arrieta is back in the lineup after international duty.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyPink slips fly into the air in the Nordecke as Robert Warzycha is introduced. #crew96
- Tee Dee Gee@TDGforRealYoThat was probably too classy a performance of the National Anthem for what's gonna be a nasty brawl. #Crew96
