Soccer is fun again! I mean, we all knew it deep down, but after Wednesday’s 1-0 win over FC Dallas, gamedays feel a lot more exciting now than they used to. To quote Atlanta United’s joint-leading goalscorer, Jeff Larentowicz, winning “can be like a drug.” We’ll have an opportunity to get our next fix tonight as the Five Stripes leave the southeastern United States for the first time in months.
The destination? Soldier Field, new home of the Chicago Fire, where the hosts recently broke out of a winless streak of their own, beating Houston 4-0 on Wednesday.
