Toronto FC vs Chicago Fire

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

MLS Week 9 | BMO Field, Toronto ON

Kickoff: 2:00pm CT

Referee: Alan Kelly

Assistant Referees: Brian Dunn, Logan Brown

4th Official: Nima Saghafi

VAR: Kevin Terry Jr


The Fire invoked some #ScamGang mojo last week with their smash-and-grab win over the New York Red Bulls. Now the onus is on them to prove they didn’t just get lucky.

They’re on the road this week and lining up against the defending MLS Cup Champions, who have somehow managed to put together a worse start to the season than the Fire and are coming off a demoralizing loss in the CONCACAF Champions League Final.

They’re tired, they’re burned out, and they’re demoralized. If the Fire can’t capitalize on that, then... I don’t know what to tell you.
