One of the fiercest rivalries in Major League Soccer history will be featured on Viernes de Futbol, as the New England Revolution host the New York Red Bulls at Gillette Stadium.
CenturyLink Field has provided one of the best atmospheres in MLS since the Seattle Sounders came into the league in 2009. That ambiance has also featured when the US national team have played in Seattle, the most recent example being in 2013 when they played Panama in a World Cup qualifier.
The Rapids broke out in a big way for their first victory Friday, a 4-0 win at FC Dallas. It was the Rapids’ first goal of the season, ending a 362-minute scoreless streak to start the season, the second-longest in MLS history. It was the first Colorado goal since last October 11, their first in league play in more than 10 hours of action.

The Montreal Impact added some offensive reinforcements on Monday, when they announced that they have acquired 21-year-old Argentine attacking midfielder Lucas Ontivero on loan from Turkish club Galatasaray.
Reports out of Argentina have the New York Red Bulls looking at left back Leonel Vangioni, who's currently struggling for playing time after a summer transfer to AC Milan, following more than four years with River Plate.
The Red Bulls remained undefeated on the season in dramatic fashion, Lloyd Sam pouncing on a rebound to score the 90th-minute equalizer for a 2-2 draw at D.C. United on Saturday evening. The Red Bulls and Real Salt Lake are the only MLS teams without a loss this season.
Things started bright for New York City FC -- David Villa had chance after chance as the home side appeared ready to dominate Real Salt Lake at any moment. They couldn't break through until the second half, with 19-year-old Jack Harrison scoring his first-ever professional goal.
They don't score many goals, rack up many assists or directly prevent opponents from finding the back of the net with last-ditch tackles, so it's no real surprise that defensive midfielders typically don't get the love they deserve.
With scoring down across Major League Soccer, it's clear that goalkeepers and their defenses have been hard at work this spring. And Week 6 brought another bevy of worthy contenders for MLS Save of the Week honors.
