Match preview

After a famous el Tráfico victory last weekend, can LA Galaxy moved to the top of the Western Conference, even if only for 22 hours?

Last weekend, the Galaxy raced into an early 2-0 lead over rivals LAFC with Javier Hernández and Séga Coulibaly both on target.

But, LAFC pulled one back with ten minutes to go before, seemingly, snatching a 98th minute equaliser at Dignity Health Sports Park.

However, the goal was ruled to have been offside by video review, meaning LA Galaxy held on for a statement victory over their city-rivals.

This means Greg Vanney's side have won four of six matches, winning the first two two, then losing two before recording back-to-back victories.

LA Galaxy will hope that particular sequence comes to an end in Illinois.

Chicago Fire meanwhile currently sit above the Eastern Conference play-off line, something they've only achieved once in the previous nine season.

Ezra Hendrickson's side were unbeaten five matches into this season, before seeing that record go up in flames in Orlando last weekend.

Brian Gutiérrez was sent off just before half time at Exploria Stadium and, a man light, Chicago couldn't hold on for a point, losing 1-0.

Nevertheless, nine points from six games represents a solid start for the Fire.

Will the Galaxy be too strong at Soldier Field?
