The Philadelphia Union are on the road at Chicago to take on a Chicago Fire team determined to make the playoffs. Having been mathematically eliminated, the Union have been reduced to playing the role of spoiler and evaluating talent for 2013.

Prediction: In the two previous matches this season, the Chicago Fire have taken all six possible points from the Philadelphia Union. By taking another three, they will take another a big step further in securing their playoff spot this season. Chicago Fire 3-1.

The game can be seen at 8:30 PM on The Comcast Network. Use the thread below to chat about the game with other Union fans. Go Union! DOOP!
