A screaming one-time golazo from midfielder Aleksandar Katai put Chicago up in the 30th minute. Holding on to the lead in its 5-3-2 formation, the Fire found another goal after goalkeeper Luis Robles committed a foul on Katai. Forward Nemanja Nikolic easily lofted the penalty kick into the back of the net.
In unfamiliar territory, the Red Bulls desperately looked for a goal at home. On an 80th minute corner, Bradley Wright-Phillips gave the home team a chance, but the opportunity came just a little too late.
