Match preview

Will New York Red Bulls continue their perfect record on the road this season?

Last weekend, Luquinhas, Cristian Cásseres Jr. and Lewis Morgan were all on target as RBNY hammered Orlando City 3-0 at Exploria Stadium.

This means the Red Bulls have started a season with four straight away victories, the first MLS side to achieve this since LA Galaxy in 1998. 

That year, the Galaxy claimed the Supporters' Shield, before losing to eventual MLS Cup winners Chicago in the Conference Finals.

Right now, Gerhard Struber's side are second in the east, three points behind early leaders Philadelphia Union.

As for Chicago Fire, 1998 remains their only MLS Cup success, last winning any silverware in 2006 when they lifted the U.S. Open Cup.

Ezra Hendrickson's team began this season by accumulating ten points from seven matches, scoring just five but only conceding twice in these games.

However, the Fire's watertight defence was breached multiple times last weekend, going down 3-0 at Minnesota United.

Federico Navarro sent off late on to compound a miserable afternoon at Allianz Field.

As a result, Chicago are now winless in four and sit tenth in the Eastern Conference.

Will New York Red Bulls' perfect start on the road see them to victory at Soldier Field?
