Defenses let in too many goals

It's likely to be a high-scoring game as both Kansas and Chicago suffer at the back.

The home side has conceded one goal per game, while the Fire have a combined total of 33. Both have only gone scoreless in five matches. 

7:48 PM17 days ago

Many goals for the locals

The Kansas team has a total of 37 goals on the season and will want to keep adding units.

7:18 PM17 days ago

Key player of Chicago Fire

Midfielder Álvaro Medrán has become a benchmark on offense this season for the Chicago Fire. 

He is the best assist man for his team and in that area he equals the team he will face tonight with 5 assists. 

He will have to show the vision and unbalance that characterize him in order to get his team points tonight. 

7:13 PM17 days ago

Kansas' key player

One of the best players in the league this season is Kansas City striker Dániel Salloi, who is in charge of scoring goals for the home team. 

He is a player who is in his prime and has very good vision to position himself in the area, which is a problem for opposing defenses. 

7:08 PM17 days ago

Chicago needs to deliver results

If the team led by Swiss coach Raphael Wicky wants to advance to the playoffs this season, it is time for them to put more effort to do so. 

They will have to get another favorable result, and this time defeat Kansas as they did the previous day against New York RB. 

That game ended with a 1-0 score thanks to Robert Beric's goal in the 32nd minute.

7:03 PM17 days ago

Kansas City will be looking for first place

The home team wants to advance directly in the Western Conference and with a few games left to play they can do it, being only two points behind the leader, which at this moment is Seattle Sounders.

Kansas will be looking for a victory to reach 43 points, being the best offense in their conference at the moment. 

6:58 PM17 days ago
