Match preview

After both enjoyed victories before the international break, will there be a winner in Windy City?

A fortnight ago, the Chicago Fire beat Sporting Kansas City 3-1 at home and it was a pair of off-season arrivals that did the damage.

Kacper Przybyłko scored his first and then second goals for the Fire with headline arrival Xherdan Shaqiri converting a penalty in-between.

That's actually back-to-back victories for Ezra Hendrickson's side having beaten D.C. United 2-0 at Audi Field a week earlier.

So, having began the campaign with back-to-back draws, Chicago are third in the east, last finishing that high in 2017.

FC Dallas meanwhile hammered the Portland Timbers 4-1 a fortnight ago, scoring 4+ in a home game for the first time since July.

Academy graduate Jesús Ferreira, who was also on target for the U.S. this week, with a first-half hat-trick before Paul Arriola added a fourth.

Just like their hosts, Nico Estévez's side have also now won successive matches, beating Nashville SC 2-0 a week earlier to claim their first win of 2022.

This particular MLS rivalry see Chicago and FC Dallas contest the Brimstone Cup, first doing so back in 1998.

With the Fire the current holders, Dallas must win in Illinois for the first time in 11 years to take the cup back to Texas.

Who will claim three points and some minor-silverware at Soldier Field?
