The hosts are second from bottom in the Eastern Conference standings, while the visitors are currently in sixth position as they fight for guaranteed qualification to the MLS Cup playoffs.

Chicago Fire will enter this contest in rather worrying form, failing to win in any of their last five matches while scoring just one goal in that time.

Hugo Cuypers managed to bring an end to his side’s barren run in front of goals with a 46th-minute equaliser in the eventual 3-1 defeat to St Louis City last time out, after previously going four games without hitting the net.

Just two wins and four draws from their 12 matches so far has left them 14th in the Eastern Conference, three points above bottom-placed New England Revolution.

Frank Klopas’ side have been much better when playing at Soldier Field so far this season, securing their only two wins at home, and they will need to make the most of that home advantage if they want to end their winless run when they host Charlotte FC.

Meanwhile, Charlotte have had an inconsistent start to the season under newly-appointed Dean Smith, who took over from former manager Christian Lattanzio following his failure to guide the team past the wild card match to qualify for the MLS Cup playoffs.

They have managed five wins and five draws from their opening 12 matches, but two wins from their last two games, their first successive victories under the new manager, has them coming into this contest in good spirits.

Charlotte have failed to secure a victory while on the road so far, losing four of their five matches away from home, but a visit to the struggling Chicago Fire’s Soldier Field could be the perfect opportunity to grab their first win away from the Bank of America Stadium.
