Seeking to snap their two-game losing streak, Chicago Fire take a trip to the TQL Stadium to square off against FC Cincinnati on Saturday. The hosts, who are currently on a run of 12 consecutive games without defeat across all competitions, will look to keep the juggernaut rolling and secure their place in the playoffs. FC Cincinnati were denied a third consecutive victory in all competitions as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Seattle Sounders at the Lumen Field on Wednesday.

In a game where Kelyn Rowe received his marching orders, Brenner netted six minutes away from the half-hour mark to put the visitors ahead before Fredy Montero restored parity with a 58th-minute strike. The Orange and Blue are unbeaten in each of their most recent 12 outings, picking up five wins and seven draws since a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Columbus Crew on July 18. With 46 points from 32 matches, Cincinnati are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference standings, four points above eighth-placed Columbus Crew just outside the playoffs qualification spot.

New York Red Bulls (NYRB) would be hoping to regain form when they entertain Toronto FC in an MLS football clash at the Red Bull Arena in New York this weekend. GerhardStruber and his players take on the Reds at home with the hope of getting back to winning ways after their two-match winning run in all competitions ended with the 2-0 loss to hosts Charlotte FC in an MLS football duel a week ago. The result left New York Red Bulls in fourth position on the Eastern Conference standings.

New York Red Bulls missed out on the opportunity to close the gap on the teams at the top of the Eastern Conference with the disappointing result recorded against Charlotte FC.

New York Red Bulls managed just seven shots during the game, which is very low as they ended a run of 10 or more shots in a game for 27 successive MLS football outings.
