Is Saturday's match already a must win?

Fire Confidential | ChicagoNow at related • 1 view
The "it's early" mantra starts to become more wearisome with each passing week. Six rounds into the 2014 campaign, the Fire have yet to record a victory and this Saturday's match against the New England Revolution may be the best chance to to collect all three points for a while. This next home match is followed by an off week and no team wants to sit on an extra seven days wait before the next game when they haven't tasted victory in two months.

Two teams that have yet to truly impress face off in the first Atlantic Cup match of 2014. The New York Red Bulls have been something of a jumbled mess so far, but they've still got enough star power to be a very dangerous team.

Last week, D.C. United had the odd situation of MLS holding a "rivalry week" in which we played the New England Revolution.

D.C. United ended their 15 MLS game winless streak with a 2-0 win against the New England Revolution on Saturday night at RFK Stadium.

As of last week, the New England Revolution were arguably worse than D.C. United in 2014. However, a fluky, last-minute win in San Jose has probably boosted spirits, and their defense looks about as solid as it was last year. Can United find a way to win a game they kinda-sorta have to have?

WASHINGTON — It had been eight long months since D.C. United tasted victory in an MLS match. A grueling stretch that has only been made barely tolerable by the U.S. Open Cup the team won last year.

The streak is over though, and it ended with the help of their opponent.
