Chicago Fire vs New York City FC

Tonight the Fire will face one of the strongest teams in the league in front of yet another quiet crowd. The Men In Red are on a bit of an unbeaten run and bolstered by Michael de Leeuw returning to training, but the lack of organized support could cancel whatever good will is in the locker room right now. Oh, and this might be Aleksandar Katai’s last game. Wheee!
