The Fire will be looking to continue their SuperLiga success Tuesday night, when MLS rival Chivas USA comes to Toyota Park. [Here is a short preview of the match I wrote up](http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/soccer/fire/chi-23-fire-chicago-jun23,0,6367565.story), but I'll dive into some areas I didn't touch upon in that piece here (namely, a prediction...)
So I'll get right to it...
I'm thinking that Tuesday night's match will end in a 1-1 draw. When you look at how the two teams played in their last games this is somewhat surprising, as the Fire were able to play well in their win over San Luis and Chivas played poorly in a disappointing 2-1 loss to what was essentially Tigres's reserve team.
Getting past the recent matches though, I think that the teams are very evenly matched. Because Chivas desperately need a win to have any hope of advancing in SuperLiga, I think that they will come out with more energy than the Fire. I see the Fire getting punished by Chivas early but fighting back later on in the match and ultimately scoring a second half equalizer.
We'll see how the match pans out (I'll certainly be hoping for a Fire win) in the first game of a SuperLiga doubleheader at Toyota Park on Tuesday night.
Chivas will be without midfielder Sacha Kljestan and defender Jonathan Bornstein for the match. Both players are in South Africa with the U.S. team for the Confederations Cup.
