The red-hot Chicago Fire will look to push the LA Galaxy's losing streak to three matches today in the day's most high-profile match-up on the MLS schedule.
Four games fill out the day, beginning with the Fire's clash with an LA side that had enjoyed a nice run before suffering back-to-back defeats. The return of Omar Gonzalez has the Galaxy feeling good about the second half of the season, and they will need Gonzalez to slow down a Fire attack that is capable of scoring in bunches.
At PPL Park, the Philadelphia Union will try to keep their recent run of good form going against a TFC side that is suddenly unbeaten in four matches under new head coach Paul Mariner. Danny Koevermans is the hottest striker in the league at the moment, but he will come up against a strong Union defense.
Here is today's schedule of MLS matches:
3 p.m. - ESPN - Chicago Fire vs. Los Angeles Galaxy
4 p.m. - TSN/MLS Live/Direct Kick - Philadelphia Union vs. Toronto FC
7 p.m. - Galavision - New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls
