Chicago Fire is looking strong with upcoming match against Canadian side, Toronto FC. The Fire has improved dramatically, with arguably one of the best midfields in the league and defensively they’re hard to break through. Schweinsteiger, McCarty, and Juninho have improved in coordinating with one another, in the previous games they’ve been creating deadly passes and counter attacks. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Dax McCarty are not just doing great together on the attack, but have also been defending great. Luis Solignac has reformed since last season and is a key player in the attack. Solignac is in good form he’s quick enough to win on the attack and good with his feet to fake the defender. Luis Solignac against New England played great and received an assist. While he has improved as a player and is enhancing the team, he still needs to work on certain things like confidence. Luis Solignac had a good chance to score, but instead passed the ball which didn’t led to anything. By this point in the season, the Fire players are getting more familiar with one another and are more confident with one another. This is a good thing since these characteristics are essentials for teamwork. Let’s see how these characteristics help the Fire against Toronto, a team that will definitely be another challenge.
Toronto is having a tough time winning games, the last game won was on March 18th against Vancouver Whitecaps. Toronto is currently sitting in 9th place with 1 win, 4 draws, and 1 loss.

Putting this aside anything can happen, Toronto has a good squad with the likes of Giovinco and Jozy Altidore on the attack and Michael Bradley securing the midfield.
