Venue: Toyota Park

Online: Fox Sports 2 Go
Projected lineups: I honestly don't see Oscar Pareja making a ton of changes even with Blas Perez and Je-Vaughn Watson back in camp from their Gold Cup duties. Keeping that same lineup that has worked over the last month may be the key to getting out of Chicago with the Brimstone Cup.
Prediction: Like I stated in our game preview, I'm going with a 2-1 win. I think this is a road game the club has to win.
What are you drinking?: I'm taking this one in at home with some Grapevine Sir Williams today.
