After being eliminated from the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs, Orlando City SC and the Chicago Fire are hoping to end the 2019 season on a high note when the Eastern Conference foes meet in a Decision Day presented by AT&T showdown at Exploria Stadium. 

Orlando City SC (9-14-10) clawed back from a first-half deficit on a Benji Michel equalizer in second-half stoppage time, but the 1-1 draw against FC Cincinnati wasn't enough to keep their postseason hopes alive. The Lions are winless in seven straight heading into their final regular-season game.

The Fire (9-12-12) battled back from a deficit, but settled for a 2-2 draw with Toronto FC in their final game in Bridgeview. Aleksandar Katai leveled in the 68th minute after Jozy Altidore put the visitors in front nine minutes earlier. Fabian Herbers gave the Fire a 2-1 lead in the 77th minute, but Omar Gonzalez headed in the equalizer three minutes later. 

In the first meeting this season March 9, Dom Dwyer put the Lions in front two minutes after halftime, but CJ Sapong leveled in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time for the Fire.
