The primary thing to note about this game is that the weather might have a say:

Safety first, like the man said.
Whenever the game is played, it's a big one for both teams. Neither is having a great season in MLS, and either would benefit from run at this year's US Open Cup. The teams won't be at full strength: both have donated players to the ongoing CONCACAF Gold Cup and each squad also has its share of injury concerns. But one of these sides will look back on this match as a moment when a tight spot was successfully navigated, and hope that bodes well for the rest of their 2017.
