DID YOU KNOW?

  • The Fire is 6-4-2 against Chivas USA, going 3-2-1 in matches played at The Home Depot Center. On Chicago's last visit, Brian McBride and Freddy Ljungberg each scored in a 4-1 thumping handed out to the host.
  • Chivas USA will play four of the next five games at home in the Home Depot Center.
  • Chivas USA forward Alejandro Moreno is with the Venezuela national team for Copa America.
  • Chicago Fire forward Cristian Nazarit returns from a two match suspension this week. The 20-year-old Colombian should boost a thin front line.
