The Loons had two players test positive for COVID-19 late last week, which caused MLS to postpone the club’s Sunday match with FC Dallas. Since then, Minnesota hasn’t announced any new positive cases, and unless something changes, Wednesday’s match is still on as scheduled.
For their part, the Fire are training this morning in Bridgeview, and are still scheduled to fly to St. Paul Wednesday morning. Wednesday’s match will be the second of three this week for the Fire. Chicago beat D.C. United 2-1 on Sunday, they travel to Minnesota Wednesday, and they’re back at Soldier Field on Saturday against Sporting Kansas City.
“We just need to focus on recovering, and getting some rest, and preparing, mostly,” Fire midfielder Micheal Azira said after Monday’s training session.
The Fire are the only team in MLS that has yet to win a match on the road, something they’ll no doubt be looking to change. On top of that, Francisco Calvo, Bobby Shuttleworth and Wyatt Omsberg will all be hungry for a victory against their former club. The game kicks off at 7 p.m. CT, and can be seen on WGN and ESPN+.
