Chicago Soccer Smolderings - LA Galaxy Preview 4/17

Sean Johnson won't have to stop another Donovan PK to win this match, but he will have to improve on previous performances to keep the clean sheet.

The Chicago Fire are back home on grass and are looking to leave their difficult two game slide in the pacific northwest. An attenuated LA Galaxy will likely be playing for a draw against a fatigued Fire that could feature more of Dominic Oduro. Davis Paul is also likely to see more time as the invaluable Marco Pappa gets rest. Other possible lineup changes include Jon Conway for Sean Johnson and Yamith Cuesta for Dasan Robinson (unlikely).
