Get your game information, lineups ,injury report and more as the Montreal host the Chicago Fire at Stade Saputo. The Chicago Fire is coming off a 1-0 win against the Columbus Crew, its second win in three games.

David Banks

After a lackluster performance in Toronto, the Montreal Impact is putting its mishap in the 2013 Amway Canadian Championship to focus on MLS. Hosting the lukewarm Chicago Fire, continuing to get points at home is crucial to bank as many points early in the season.

With the absence of Matteo Ferrari for at least 2 weeks, expect Karl W. Ouimette to start alongside Alessandro Nesta as the duo will take on Chris Rolfe, Sherjill MacDonald and Patrick Nyarko. Up front for Les Bleus, we might see a 2-prong attack as Daniele Paponi was playing alongside Marco Di Vaio during practice
