Toronto FC were without luck in their last 2 MLS games, they are winless in the last 2 games which includes a 1-1 draw at home against Seattle Sounders FC, they lost 2-1 defeat at Vancouver Whitecaps in the 2nd leg of Canadian Cup Final but they won the Silverware on the bases of of away goal rule due to their 1-0 home victory in the first leg. They now hope to halt their 2 game winless streak in this game.

Chicago Fire come into this game from a 1-0 victory over San Jose Earthquake last week making it the first time they are getting 2 consecutive victories this season, they still languishing in the bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference, but they hope to make it hat-trick of win in this game.
