NEW YORK CITY FC vs. CHICAGO FIRE
YANKEE STADIUM, Bronx, New York
May 15, 2015 (Week 11, MLS Game #100)
7 pm ET (UDN)

A pair of clubs looking to reverse recent skids meet on Viernes de Fútbol as New York FC play host to the Chicago Fire at Yankee Stadium. NYCFC saw their winless run reach eight games with a fourth consecutive defeat, falling 2-1 to cross-river rivals New York Red Bulls on Sunday afternoon. The Fire lost their second consecutive contest last weekend, dropping a 2-1 home decision to Real Salt Lake. It’s the second meeting between the clubs; a David Accam goal proved the difference in the Fire’s win by the minimum difference on April 24 at Toyota Park.

  • The teams are meeting for the second time ever. David Accam scored the game’s only goal early in the first half to give the Fire the victory April 24 at Toyota Park.
  • New York City FC saw their losing slide extended to four games and their overall winless run to eight games with a loss in the first-ever Gotham Derby, falling 2-1 to the New York Red Bulls on Sunday afternoon. The longest losing streak ever by an expansion team was six games by the Miami Fusion in 1998.
  • The Fire fell to their second consecutive defeat coming off a three-game winning streak, dropping a 2-1 decision to Real Salt Lake on Saturday afternoon at Toyota Park.
