KANSAS CITY, Mo.

The match will be streamed live on YouTube and in-game updates can be followed via Twitter at @BluesGameday.

Overall, FC Kansas City and Boston have squared off a total of seven times in league history. The Blues lead the All-time series 5-2-0.
Coach Tum Durkin’s team stands eighth in the league standings with an overall record of 3-5-2 and 11 points. The Breakers are coming from a tough 2-0 home loss against the Western New York Flash.
