The Fire come into this game even more fortified than they were last week heading to Rio Tinto with Bakary Soumare back among the ranks

The Chicago attack will feature another fresh face in recently acquired Mike Magee. Additionally, it looks like Sean Johnson will indeed be back in goal despite the USMNT having a game against Germany today. The rotation of goalkeepers that Jurgen Klinsmann is going with allows the Milkman to play today against DC United. This means we will field an even stronger team, making my prediction of a 2-0 Fire win even more likely.

The midfield might have a slightly different look if Logan Pause can't play. Speculation paints either Daniel Paladini or Alex into a starting role. While I love both players, I really want to see Alex get a chance to start. With Rolfe an Magee in front of him I think he could really orchestrate the offense if given the chance. Whichever way the gaffer decides to go, we will find out in just under 6 hours.

Please join us here at HTIOT to watch Magee and company do work. Lineups will be posted pre-match. Let's go Fire!
