Can FC Cincinnati tighten their grip on a post-season spot?
On Tuesday night, the Orange and Blue battled to a 1-1 draw with Seattle Sounders.
Brenner, who else, on target at Lumen Field.
This means Pat Noonan’s side are now unbeaten in 12 matches, which is guaranteed to be the longest sequence of any club in MLS this season.
That point moved Cincinnati up to fifth in the east, knowing one more win will ensure they’ll feature in the post-season for the first time ever.
Chicago Fire meanwhile haven’t qualifed for the play-offs since 2017, last winning a post-season match in 2009!
Neither of these facts will change after Ezra Hendrickson’s team were eliminated from contention a fortnight ago.
Despite leading 2-0 at home to Charlotte, Mauricio Pineda and in-form Jhon Durán the scorers, the Fire completely collapsed and lost 3-2, the go-ahead goal coming deep into stoppage time.
That’s now one win in seven for Chicago who’ve slipped down to 12th.
Thus, the home fans at TQL Stadium will be expecting to see a win.
