  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Chicago was on a four-game winning streak prior to Friday's loss to Sporting Kansas City.
  • That loss was just the club's second in its last 10 matches.
  • A win over SKC would have clinched a playoff spot for the club, however, a win over the Union will not be enough to seal a place in the postseason.
  • Philadelphia has not won in its last six road matches.
  • The Union's playoff hopes ended over the weekend with a loss to the Columbus Crew.
