Scouting the Fire: The Fire (9-6-4, 31 points) will be without the suspended Arne Friedrich, but he might not have played anyway on short rest after Saturday's win. The Fire can pass the Red Bulls and D.C. United in the Eastern Conference standings with a victory.

Scouting the Montreal Impact: The Red Bulls (9-5-5, 32 points) have very little time to recover from Sunday's draw against Seattle. Expect coach Hans Backe to rest some of his stars for the midweek matinee. The Red Bulls are one of the highest-scoring teams in the league, but the defense has been a weak spot.

Next: Aston Villa, 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Toyota Park
