Gamethread: MON v CHI, MLS #6, 3 p.m., My50 Chicago

Paul Frederiksen-USA TODAY Sport

Unbeaten in four games, Fire look to finally take the final step and win the game

It's Copa Frank, and it kicks off presently! At watch parties and in living rooms across Chicagoland, let's get ready to bring home three points!

Montreal's lineup is the anticipated 4-1-3-2, with Jack McInerney inserted up top alongside Marco Di Vaio , and only Collen Warner screening what has been (to this point) a highly suspect back four. Karl Ouimette replaces Hassoun Camara in the middle, to unpredictable affect:

Meanwhile, the Fire counter with the lineup that dominated Philadelphia for long stretches last week, save one change: Alex is inserted as a more attack-minded central partner for Jeff Larentowicz, in favor of Matt Watson:

The subs for Chicago have a lot of youth and potential, especially absent former captain Logan Pause, who is with his wife, Vaneesha, in anticipation of a new child. Homegrown player Chris Ritter makes the gameday 18 for the first time, and the Fire have three Homegrowns in the 18: Ritter, Harrison Shipp (who starts again), and Victor Pineda.

Montreal's subs bench will have Impact supporters grinding their teeth: Patrice Bernier starts on the pine, again.
