  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Toronto is the only team in MLS yet to record a single point this season. The Reds' -8 goal difference is tied for worst in the league.
  • This is the first time in Toronto's history that it has lost five consecutive games.
  • Viewers should plan for a low-scoring game. TFC has found the net twice this season, the fewest of any MLS team this season, and Chicago is tied for second-lowest, having scored three.
  • The Reds will be glad to have this game at home, since they have never beaten Chicago at Toyota Park.
  • Forward Chris Rolfe could play his first game for Chicago since 2009. He spent two seasons playing for Danish team AaB.
