Union vs. Chicago Fire: Preview, projected lineups, how to watch

The struggling Fire bring the heat to Chester.

MLS: Philadelphia Union at Real Salt Lake Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

On what is surely one of the hottest game-nights in the history of Talen Energy Stadium, the Union welcome the Chicago Fire. The Fire enter Chester with the worst away record in MLS, having failed to win in all ten of their games away from home. The first-place Union have picked up only five points in their past five games. A win tonight would keep the Union atop the East for at least another week.

The Union’s injury report includes a league-high eight players. Jamiro Monteiro, Sergio Santos, Matt Freese, and Olivier Mbaizo are listed as out, while Ilsinho, Kai Wagner, Warren Creavalle, and Michee Ngalina have been deemed questionable. Chicago is the only team in MLS with a fully healthy squad.

Projected lineups

Philadelphia Union: Andre Blake; Ray Gaddis, Jack Elliott, Auston Trusty, Matt Real; Haris Medunjanin, Alejandro Bedoya, Brenden Aaronson, Marco Fabián; Kacper Przybyłko, Andrew Wooten

Chicago Fire: Kenneth Kronholm; Brandt Bronico, Johan Kappelhof, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Francisco Calvo; Djordje Mihailovic, Dax McCarty; Aleksandar Katai, Nicolás Gaitán, Przemysław Frankowski; CJ Sapong
