The Chicago Fire look to rebound from a loss to San Jose Earthquakes when they host a New York City FC squad that is unbeaten in their last seven games when the Eastern Conference foes clash at SeatGeek Stadium Saturday afternoon. 

Aleksandar Katai scored the lone goal for the Fire (4-5-4), but it came after four goals by Chris Wondolowski, who became the league's all-time leading scorer in a 4-1 rout at Avaya Stadium last Saturday. It snapped a three-match unbeaten run for Chicago, which didn't concede in that stretch. 

NYCFC (4-1-6) were idle in Week 12, but come into their second game of the year against the Fire after back-to-back shutouts on the road. The Cityzens won the first game, 1-0, at Yankee Stadium on a ninth-minute Valentin Castellanos goal.
