Equal chance to both!

2 people are playing with a pair of dies. The dies have different colors on their sides. The first person wins if the same color appears on both the dies and the second person wins if the colors are different. The odds (chance) of their winning are equal. If the first dice has 5 red sides and 1 blue side, find the color (s) on the second one.
