Saturday's opponent, the Colorado Rapids played to a 1-1 draw against Real Espana in Honduras last night in CONCACAF Champion's League action. Their line up included a mixture of reserves and regulars with Jeff Larentowicz, Kosuke Kimura, Wells Thompson and Omar Cummings all seeing considerable minutes. Travel is an underplayed consideration in MLS and could be a factor on Saturday night. The Rapids also tied Chivas USA 2-2 this past weekend.
The midweek injury report has been released and the Fire are down to two names.
CHICAGO FIRE -- OUT: DF Steven Kinney (L groin strain); MF Marko Maric (L ankle posterior capsulitis)
