CHICAGO FIRE vs PHILADELPHIA UNION TOYOTA PARK, Bridgeview, Ill. May 11, 2013 (WEEK 11, MLS Game #94) 12:30 p.m. CT (NBC SN; TSN2) The Chicago Fire return to league play after a weekend off when they entertain Philadelphia Union on Saturday afternoon at Toyota Park before an NBC Sports Network audience. The Fire are coming off a 2-0 loss at the Montréal Impact in their last contest. Union hit the road following a fractious 2-2 draw with Seattle Sounders FC last weekend at PPL Park.

Each team has also scored nine goals.  The teams ended their season series a year ago with 3-1 victories at the other’s ground, the Fire winning at PPL Park on Aug. 12, and Union returning the favor Oct. 3 at Toyota Park.  Coaches record: Frank Klopas vs. PHI: P4 W2 L1 D1 … John Hackworth vs. CHI: P2 W1 L1 D0 CHICAGO FIRE The Chicago Fire lost for a second consecutive match on their travels, dropping a 2-0 decision to the Montréal Impact on April 27 at Stade Saputo. The Fire are in a tie for eighth place in the Eastern Conference with 7 points from 8 matches. LAST MATCH  The Impact finally broke through in the second half. A long pass from Wandrille Lefèvre from the right reached Andrea Pisanu, who fed Romero on the left wing. Romero tricked his way past Chicago right back Logan Pause and curled a beauty to the top right corner for the 57th-minute opener.  The game then took a turn in the 64th minute, when Fire midfielder Jeff Larentowicz was sent off for tripping up Pisanu on a run toward goal.  Impact striker Di Vaio wrapped up the game with a low, delicate finish in the 76th minute after newcomer Daniele Paponi served him a ball in the area.  Fire head coach Frank Klopas made one change to the team that got a late goal for a 1-0 win against the Columbus Crew at Toyota Park. Daniel Paladini came into the side in place of the suspended Wells Thompson.  CHICAGO FIRE (4-2-3-1): Sean Johnson - Logan Pause, Austin Berry, Jalil Anibaba, Gonzalo Segares - Jeff Larentowicz (sent off 63), Daniel Paladini - Patrick Nyarko (Dilly Duka 84), Chris Rolfe, Joel Lindpere (Alex 77) - Sherjill MacDonald (Maicon Santos 66). TEAM NEWS  The Fire were shut out for a fourth time this season in the loss to Montréal, after scoring a goal in four consecutive games following a 334-minute goalless streak to open the season.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


      

“I thought it was a very unfortunate game, it started off well, and in the second half, when they scored, it went down from there,” said goalkeeper Sean Johnson. “We changed our defense because of the Impact’s two forwards and obviously they are playing at home so they went in more aggressively in the second half, so they ended up putting two in the back of the net.” With Wells Thompson suspended for the Impact match after a ruling by the MLS Disciplinary Committee, Logan Pause dropped back to play right back. “[Logan]’s played there before and we didn’t have any other options,” said Fire head coach Frank Klopas. “[Dan] Paladini was in good form and my other option was Mike Videira and he’s had enough concussions. We put a right back that is experienced and has played that position before.” Said Pause: “I think, individually being involved in both goals, I feel like I could have done better. It was not good enough defending for me and I felt like I let the team down a little.” Pause will likely return to the central midfield spot he’s patrolled for so long after Jeff Larentowicz’s appeal of the red card he received against Montréal was not upheld. There were no changes in the Fire front six, with Sherjill MacDonald starting for a seventh consecutive game as the target striker. “The red card was the knife in our chest,” winger Patrick Nyarko said. “Even after the goal, we have the team, with the confidence we're playing at, we can come back. I don't think Montreal played their best game, so I feel like we were in the game. But I felt like the red card just took everything away from us.” Alex made his first appearance, coming off the bench for the final 13 minutes, since making his lone start of the season March 24 vs. Chivas.

PHILADELPHIA UNION Philadelphia Union returned home from a two-game road swing and reached a 2-2 draw with Seattle Sounders FC last Saturday afternoon at PPL Park. Union sit in a tie for fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 12 points from 9 matches. LAST MATCH  Sounders FC opened the scoring in the 10th minute when Eddie Johnson headed in a corner from Mauro Rosales. Union goalie Zac MacMath appeared to block the initial shot but was inside the goal line when he did so, and the goal was given.  But Danny Cruz and Union struck twice within a minute. In the 50th minute, Cruz roofed a rebound into the upper corner on a rebound of a Conor Casey header that hit the post.  Then Cruz again beat Sounders goalkeeper Michael Gspurning on a rebound – this one from a long-range Jack McInerney shot that took a favorable bounce off the crossbar – to give Union the lead.  But Seattle tied the score in the 64th minute when Rosales scored his first of the season on a left-footed shot following a cross from Leo Gonzalez and through ball from Mario Martinez.  In the 85th minute, both Seattle’s Lamar Neagle and Philadelphia’s Sheanon Williams were sent off after a scuffle in the Union penalty area. Then in second-half stoppage time, Sounders FC went a man down when DeAndre Yedlin was sent off following a late tackle on Michael Farfan.  Union team manager John Hackworth kept the same team for a third consecutive match, maintaining the group that lost 2-0 to the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium.  PHILADELPHIA UNION (4-1-3-2): Zac MacMath - Sheanon Williams (sent off 85), Jeff Parke (Gabriel Farfan 46+), Amobi Okugo, Raymon Gaddis - Brian Carroll - Danny Cruz (Antoine Hoppenot 72), Keon Daniel, Michael Farfan - Conor Casey, Jack McInerney (Sebastien Le Toux 87). TEAM NEWS  It was a second consecutive draw at PPL Park for Union, who have now won just once in four home matches, taking five of a possible 12 points.  “We’re doing our absolute best to limit the chances that the other team gets. Maybe we just need to do an even better job to not let them get anything. Credit to all the guys and the work that they put in to get back in the game,” said midfielder Brian Carroll. “You’re never satisfied with a home draw, but everyone put in a great work rate, intensity, and there’s nobody that you can really point to or anything negatively at all.”  Union have allowed two goals now in three consecutive games, and have conceded multiple goals in five of nine games for the season. They have allowed 1.56 goals per game, fourth-highest average in MLS.  “We’ve limited the shots on goal to about less than three a game, but the chances that we’re giving up are clear chances, and the other teams have been doing a good job of capitalizing on them. We’ve got to go back to the drawing board,” said Amobi Okugo. “Defensively, I thought we did well today, but they had two good chances— three good chances, and they capitalized on two of them. If we could just limit the chances that they get, maybe we can get a shutout, or keep them to one goal.”  Union will already be forced to make on the back line after Sheanon Williams was sent off late, but another could come in center back Jeff Parke, who suffered a hamstring strain that forced him off the field just before halftime.

“We feel comfortable playing with whoever’s back there,” said Okugo. “At practice we work on all different types of formations, and different people, whether it’s me and (Bakary Soumare), me and (Jeff Parke), or Parke and (Soumare). Hopefully, we are going to come out ready. With Parke’s injury, there was a readjustment to the back line, with Gabriel Farfan coming on. “We switched (Raymond Gaddis)—once (Jeff Parke) went off with his injury, (Sheanon Williams) came inside with me and Ray tucked in. He was on the right,” said Okugo. “(Gabriel Farfan) was kind of playing hybrid, or left mid—he came back when needed … once we got the second goal, we dropped Gabe back.” Said Union team manager John Hackworth: He continues to work hard. He is a guy that I trust immensely on a personal and professional level and he is a really good player. He is competing right now with his brother for playing time, but when called upon today he did his job and he did it very well.” Danny Cruz recorded his first career two-goal game in Union’s 2-2 home draw with Seattle Sounders FC. Cruz has scored two goals now in each of the last four seasons, moving from D.C. United to Union midway through last year. “We need goals from everybody—forwards, midfielders, defenders, set pieces, through the run of play,” said Carroll. “To see someone like (Danny Cruz), who’s been knocking on the door for a while, given a few chances, I’m happy to see him put two in one game … maybe it’ll relieve (Jack McInerney) a little bit and give him an extra bit of space to start creating some more goals.”

The Fire opened scoring in the 20th minute when Thompson received the ball on the right flank, made a deep run and crossed for Santos, whose onetime shot pinged off the post into goal to give the Fire the 1-0 lead. Deep into first half stoppage time, Santos played the ball to Bone. The central midfielder turned towards goal and from just inside the 18 yard box, unleashed a dipping shot that curved around FC Dallas ‘keeper Chris Seitz to double the Fire’s lead heading into halftime. The Fire would go down a man in the 62nd minute when Thompson was shown his second yellow card of the match for a high boot on Acosta. With the man advantage, FC Dallas continued to press and would cut the deficit in the 80th minute when Acosta’s bending shot went past an outstretched Paolo Tornaghi into the side netting. In the 83rd minute, defender Michael Videira was shown a yellow card for a hard challenge 30 yards from goal. Acosta lined up the ensuing free kick but it rattled the crossbar and was cleared by the Fire defense. FC Dallas would get one last chance in the 91st minute when the referee awarded the visitors a penalty kick for a foul in the box. Bobby Warshaw’s penalty hit the left post and was cleared out by the Fire defense as the match ended 2-1.

UNION v CHICAGO STORYLINES First of Two:  The Fire and Union will play twice in two weeks. They will play again the following Saturday, May 18, in Philadelphia. Chicago will play the Union two games in a row, but the Union will host Los Angeles in a midweek tilt between the two games against the Fire. Parity in the East:  The Union have played seven games against the Eastern Conference this season and have a very even record. They have compiled a 2-3-2 record against Kansas City (L), New England (W/L), New York (L), Columbus (T), Toronto (T), and D.C. (W). Record Chasers:  If Jack McInerney scores the deciding goal, it would give him the Union franchise record for game-winners in a single season (where he currently tied with four players, including himself in 2012, with three).


If McInerney scores, he would break his own Union record set in 2012 for road goals in a single season (4). Look to Capitalize:  The Union have scored at least one goal in all but one game this season. They are led by Jack McInerney, who is currently tied in first in the race for the Golden Boot. They will look to capitalize on this as they face off against Sean Johnson of Chicago, who the fifth highest GAA of any keeper this season at 1.43 (min. 7 games). Still at the Top:  Even though he did not score in the Union’s last two contests, Jack McInerney still is tied for the league lead with six goals. He is tied with Mike Magee of Los Angeles and Claudio Bieler of Kansas City. Defensive Changes:  The Union defense could look a lot different compared to any other game this season. The back line will be without Sheanon Williams (suspension) and potentially Jeff Parke (injury) for the first time this season. The back four, including Amobi Okugo and Ray Gaddis, had played a total of 2869 of a possible 2880 minutes this season for the Union. Union Firsts Against Chicago:  Chicago was the victim of Philadelphia’s first ever shutout. The clean sheet came on September 11, 2010 and Brad Knighton was in goal for the Union. Sebastien Le Toux scored a goal in the 36th minute to give Philly the victory.  Michael Farfan’s first career goal came against Chicago in a 2-1 victory on May 21, 2011. The rookie scored the first goal of the game when he took a free-kick pass from Kyle Nakazawa and struck a low, driving shot through traffic and into the net. Red Card Impact:  Sheanon Williams will not be available for the Union in the game due to his ejection last game. In the 85th minute Williams and Seattle Sounder Lamar Neagle had an altercation that saw both get sent off. This was William’s first red card since last August, when he drew one in a heated game against rival D.C.  Chicago midfielder Jeff Larentowicz was given a straight red card last game after he tripped Montreal’s Andrea Pisanu at the top of the box on a breakaway. Chicago appealed the ejection and compounding suspension but the ruling was upheld. Double-Double:  Last game for Philadelphia, Danny Cruz scored both goals for his first career brace. The double is the second by a Union player in their last three games. Jack McInerney recorded a brace against D.C. on April 21.
