Last week the Philadelphia Union played a team that despite being last in the standings were up n ear the top in many advanced stats categories. The Chicago Fire on the other hand, are near the bottom of the standings and near the bottom in many advanced stats. Small sample caveat and all, this game could be a prime opportunity for the Union to take some points in the standings after losing a 1-0 lead and drawing the Impact last week.
