A first half stoppage time goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic was all the Los Angeles Galaxy needed to earn all three points against the Fire on a cold and rainy day in Bridgeview. The match drew the largest crowd for a Fire game a Toyota Park with announced attendance of 21,915.
The Fire were competitive but failed to get much going in the attack and now embark on a difficult stretch of games that will feature challenges against some of the better teams in the Eastern Conference. The Fire travel to New York to face the Red Bulls next weekend, followed by a trip to Toronto FC before returning home to face Atlanta United FC.
