MLS. Xherdan Shaqiri shines but Chicago bites the dust


Chicago failed to make the three pass. Victorious in Portland and Kansas City, the Fire lost 3-1 in Orlando despite a success from Xherdan Shaqiri.

The Basel reduced the score from the penalty spot in the 66th while Orlando was already leading 2-0 in a match where it was apparently forbidden to defend well. Also marked by the expulsion of former Niçois Arnaud Souquet from the ranks of Fire, this meeting underlined how much Xherdan Shaqiri and his teammates could suffer in the face of opposing transitions. The arrival of ex-Luganese Ousmane Doumbia, who did not play on Saturday, should bring some balance to a team that is virtually only 3 points from the play-offs.

In the West Stefan Frei and Roman Bürki will see the final series. The two Swiss goalkeepers continue to shine. Stefan Frei scored his… eleventh clean sheet of the season in Seattle’s 1-0 home win over Houston.

As for Roman Bürki, he also celebrated a shutout with St. Louis, victorious 2-0 from Colorado. St. Louis, in its first season, leads the Conference with a 3-point lead over Los Angeles FC and Seattle.
