We're all set and ready to go on a slightly chilly night here in Bridgeview. The clubs are on the pitch warming up and the CJ Brown Ring of Fire banner is being covered by white sheeting - we're ready for an exciting night.


Chicago Fire (3-2-2 11 pts) v. Real Salt Lake (7-3-1 22 pts) at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Illinois.

May 9, 2012 7:30 PM CT

Referee: Jair Marrufo

Keys to the Match:

The Fire need to jump out early against the RSL backup keeper. Starter Nick Rimando couldn't make the trip to Chicago due to a knock so the Fire are catching a break in net - they need to capitalize on it.

Marco Pappa needs to continue his run of good form and who better to do it against than the team he scored a hat trick on last season?

If the Fire come out in the 4-5-1 formation that they featured on Friday at Chivas we should be in store for a fun, fast paced match.

Sean Johnson needs to build off of his solid performance at the weekend.
