Get to know the matchup in Keys to the Game, presented by Honda:

Fire Power

The Fire are powered by Xherdan Shaqiri and Jairo Torres, one of which appeared in the latest matchup between the two clubs, with Shaqiri converting a penalty in RBNY's 2-1 victory at Soldier Field.

Torres, Chicago's Young DP, has appeared in one match, playing just 19 minutes so far for CFFC. Look for him to get an extended run vs. RBNY on Wednesday evening.

Chicago, though, has lost their last four matches and haven't won in their last seven.

Return Ready

Patryk Klimala logged 45 minutes in his return from MLS' health and safety protocols, while Lewis Morgan will look to get back on the pitch on Wednesday following his stint there, too.

The two attackers will look to put the ball in the back of the net vs. Fire.

Klimala scored a brace last time out vs. Chicago, scoring from the run of play and then converting a penalty for the game-winner.

Home Hope

New York is still chasing their first win at Red Bull Arena in 2022.

New York is undefeated on the road this season, across all competitions, but have yet to find all three points at RBA.

Chicago has tallied one of their two wins away from home in 2022.
