Match Day #12 Game Thread: Philadelphia Union vs. Chicago Fire

Last weekend, the Philadelphia Union struggled to do much of anything against the Fire. They, however, were saved by Zac MacMath and a moment of magic between Sebastien Le Toux and Jack McInerney. Here's hoping the Union fare better today.

Meet the Opposition: Hot Time In Old Town

Philadelphia Union starting XI: (4-4-2) Zac MacMath; Raymon Gaddis, Bakary Soumare, Amobi Okugo, Sheanon Williams; Brian Carroll, Danny Cruz, Kleberson, Michael Farfan; Jack McInerney, Sebastien Le Toux

Philadelphia Union bench: Chris Konopka, Chris Albright, Keon Daniel, Leo Fernandes, Roger Torres, Conor Casey, Antoine Hoppenot

Chicago Fire starting XI: (4-4-2) Sean Johnson; Wells Thompson, Jalil Anibaba, Austin Berry, Gonzalo Segares; Dilly Duka, Logan Pause, Jeff Larentowicz, Joel Lindpere; Patrick Nyarko; Chris Rolfe

Prediction: The last time these two squads met, the Union won but things could have gone better. This match is at PPL Park and even after the mid-week collapse against the Los Angeles Galaxy, surely the Union can put together a strong 90 minutes at home against Chicago. I hope. Union win 1-0.
