Scouting report

Chicago Fire at New England Revolution

When:6:30 p.m. at Gillette Stadium

TV: NBC Nonstop (Channel 5.2)

Scouting the Fire: With a playoff berth wrapped up, the Fire (17-10-5, 56 points) is playing for playoff position. The top seed in the Eastern Conference is still up for grabs and a top-three spot very important. The Fire has struggled in the past on artificial turf such as at Gillette Stadium. Alvaro Fernandez might not play after returning from World Cup qualifiers in South America.

Scouting the Revolution: The injury-plagued Revolution (7-17-8, 29 points) is winding up a dreary season, but players are playing for jobs next season. Both teams are well-rested after the international break.

Next: D.C United, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at Toyota Park
