Two weeks after dropping their season opener, the Columbus Crew return to the pitch to host the Montreal Impact in their home-opener at the Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Oh. (4 p.m. ET on Fox Sports Ohio). The Crew (0-1) opened their season almost two weeks ago with a 2-0 loss to the Colorado Rapids, while the Impact (0-1-1) have already played two games but have to yet earned a victory.

On March 10, the Rapids used goals in the 44th and 89th minute, and a solid defensive effort to down the Crew. During the week off, Columbus played a pair of exhibition games against college teams, earning a 5-1 victory over Michigan State and a 1-0 win over West Virginia.

Meanwhile, the Impact failed to hold on to a 1-0 advantage against the Chicago Fire last Saturday. The Fire trailed by just a tally and knotted the contest with a goal in the 71st minute.

Currently, the Impact are in third place in the Eastern Conference standings, which features the Sporting Kansas City and Houston Dynamo a top with two victories.
