Minnesota United vs Chicago Fire

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

MLS Week 3 | TCF Bank Stadium, Minneapolis MN

Kickoff: 1pm CT

Referee: Alex Chilowicz

Assistant Referees: Jason White, Felisha Mariscal

4th Official: Baldomero Toledo

VAR: Kevin Terry Jr.


The MLS season is long, and late-year rallies do happen in this league. But it’s far too easy to fall into an inescapable pit with too many bad early results. The Fire know this. (Hopefully.)

The Men In Red will be looking to turn the page on their gut-punch of a loss last week against Sporting Kansas City. They’re venturing the Cold White Godless North to take on Minnesota United for only the second time ever.

MNUFC are still reeling from the news that Kevin Molino will miss the rest of the 2018 season with an injury. Even so, the Loons won’t be pushovers, and the Fire will need to hold their nerve and keep their net undisturbed (at the very least).
