Minnesota United FC 2, Chicago Fire 1 | 2018 MLS Match Recap
It was a much different home opener for Minnesota United FC the second time around. Last year's blizzard gave way to a sunny day, which also saw the Loons defeat the Chicago Fire 2-1 at TFC Bank Stadium.
A scoreless game was broken in the 55th minute when Ibson put in his own rebound for his first MLS goal. Chicago rookie Elliot Collier – making his first start – equalized shortly after, only to see United's Sam Nicholson head in the eventual game-winner at the back post off a nice cross from Ethan Finlay.
Chicago were without midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger as he and his wife are expecting.
