Thursday’s hosts have been enduring a forgettable campaign till now, having managed just 14 points from 16 games till now in the Eastern Conference of the Major League Soccer. Chicago Fire have won only three times, but have drawn on five occasions and have lost a staggering eight games so far. They are currently level on points with DC United. Notably, in their last home game, they beat DC United 1-0. It is something for Chicago Fire to take confidence from ahead of their upcoming home clash.

On the other hand, Philadelphia Union registered an incredible late victory over New York City FC in their last match to take the top spot. After seeing Philadelphia’s early opener getting canceled out by an 89th-minute Valentin Castellanos penalty, NYCFC were set to get atleast a point from the match. However, deep into injury time, substitute Cory Burke scored an unlikely winner to help Philadelphia register all three points. Currently, Philadelphia have 29 points from 16 games, which is two more than NYCFC, who have played one less game.
