Game preview: Crew vs. Red Bulls

Both teams are coming off midweek U.S. Open Cup games, although the Red Bulls expended more energy in their Wednesday win over the New York Cosmos than did the Crew in a Tuesday loss to Orlando City SC. New York has pulled itself out of a rough stretch with consecutive league wins, and the Crew is in search of its second winning streak of the season. There will be goals to be had on both sides, but the Crew might be in a bit better condition to come away with a win.

Weary Crew faces rested Orlando City

It might not be much of a fair fight tonight when Crew SC heads to Florida with a spot in the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals at stake. Fellow Major League Soccer club Orlando City is expected to field a first-choice lineup buoyed by six days of rest from competition and playing at home. In contrast, the Crew will have to piece together a lineup still feeling the effects of having played on Saturday at Real Salt Lake.

On paper, though, this is a game the Crew should win.
