The eighth week of the MLS season kicks off on Friday night, with a doubleheader on the docket.
The Chicago Fire play host to injury-hit New York City FC at Toyota Park (8pm, Univision Deportes). The Fire are coming off an extended break, and should be well-rested against an NYCFC team missing several starters.
The MLS nightcap takes place at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, where the Colorado Rapids play host to FC Dallas (10pm, Univision Deportes). The Rapids demolished FC Dallas in Frisco just two weeks ago, but it is a safe bet Oscar Pareja’s side will be focused and motivated in tonight’s rematch.

Garber said no pro/rel ever. I say good riddance to the MLS.
Does anyone know what’s going on with Magee
For all the progress MLS has made the commentators for this match are setting us back 10 years. Unbearable.
Yeah, I’m so happy that they added English this year…but my goodness.
Is it just me or are they saying Diskerud’s name wrong?
No…he definitely is. He can pronounce all the Spanish words with phenomenal accuracy, but good lord. Is Diskerud really that hard? He keeps saying Disk-Rudd
Gonna be watching how Shipp and Shelton play.
