In front of what was probably the most lively crowd at an MLS match in sometime, if ever Chicago gave away a lead for the third straight match and Manager Juan Carlos Osorio lost his temper and was shown off the bench by the officials.
The match was tense as Cuauhtemoc Blanco, a long time Club America superstar and Chivas Guadalajara was making his first trip as a member of the Fire to Los Angeles. The sellout crowd was loud from the start and the place erupted when Blanco scored on a wonderful free kick in the first half.
But in the second half controversy ensued as Chivas was given a penalty and Claudio Suarez finished it. Late in the match Blanco appeared to be tripped in the box after a great run by Alex Zotinica, but Blanco who is notorious for fighting with officials choose not to argue the call instead looking to take a quick corner, thus Osorio lost his temper and was sent off. The match ended in a lively draw, but Chicago is certainly leaving the door open for Columbus or Los Angeles to catch them for the final playoff spot.
