Fire scouting report


Chicago Fire at Los Angeles Galaxy at Toyota Park, 7 p.m.

Streaming: FS1

Scouting the Fire: The Fire added nine players in the off-season, including probable starters Marcelo, David Ousted and Przemyslaw Frankowski. Defense looks like it will again be a weakness, but the attack appears to be strengthened from last year's 10th-place team.

Scouting the Los Angeles Galaxy: Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns, and the Galaxy looked to be an improved side from last year's team, particularly defensively. Among the changes is new coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

Next: vs. Orlando City SC at SeatGeek Stadium, March 9, noon
