The Columbus Crew rallied for a midweek tie, but are looking to snap a 10-match winless run Saturday at MAPFRE Stadium when they host a Montreal Impact squad that has lost three in a row.

The Crew (5-14-3) ended a five-game losing streak when they came from behind to draw the Chicago Fire, 2-2, at SeatGeek Stadium Wednesday night. After falling behind on a Djordje Mihailovic first-half goal, Gyasi Zares leveled two minutes into the second half. CJ Sapong put the Fire back in front in the 63rd minute, but newly-acquired Romario Williams came through with the 90th-minute equalizer. 

The Impact (9-10-3) fell to Toronto FC, 2-0, at Stade Saputo in the first Canadian Classique of the 2019 season Saturday to drop their third game in a row. They also lost influential midfielder Samuel Piette to injury. Alejandro Pozuelo broke the stalemate in the 61st minute and Jozy Altidore added the late insurance goal for the visitors via a free kick.
