The Chicago Fire open SeatGeek Stadium looking to bounce back from a 2-1 season-opening loss to the LA Galaxy when they welcome in Nani and Orlando City SC to kick off the slate in Week 2. The Fire were encouraged by their play in the attacking third, especially the debut of Polish attacker Przemyslaw Frankowski. Orlando, meanwhile, rallied from a two-goal halftime deficit to tie NYCFC, 2-2, at home in Week 1 with Nani coming off the bench for the final 20 minutes.
