Chicago Fire vs. Philadelphia Union - MLS #23 - Gamethread - 6:00 PM CST - Galavision

The Fire will look to notch win #2 of the 2012 MLS season over the Union. The Fire prevailed 1-0 on March 24th at Toyota Park. The Men in Red were fueled by a Dominic Oduro goal, assisted by Marco Pappa. With new faces Sherjill MacDonald and Alvaro 'Flaco' Fernandez in the mix, the Fire offense will look to break out and bring home 3 road points.

The Fire come off a 2-1 win vs. Toronto FC. Chicago comes into the match on form of L-W-L-D-W. The Men in Red sit in 5th place in the East on 35 points. The Union meanwhile, come into game 9th in the East on 23 points. Philadelphia is sporting a form of W-W-L-W-L so they have been riding a bit of a hot streak.

3 points would be big for the Fire, especially if they can further distance themselves from Montreal and especially Columbus below them. A win in PPL is always tough, but I think we get the job done. I am going with a 1-0 Fire win as I mentioned in the 3 questions exchange. I am tabbing Sherjill to get his first MLS goal. As always, we invite you to join us on the gamethread. Lineups will be posted when announced. Let's go Fire!
