The Chicago Fire will look to win its first trophy since the 2006 U.S. Open Cup by defeating Mexican side Tigres in the 2009 SuperLiga Final tonight at Toyota Park (8pm, Telefutura).
The Fire will look to become the second straight MLS team to win the SuperLiga title after New England won it last year. Pachuca won the inaugural SuperLiga title in 2007.
Tigres has a few familiar faces to MLS and USA fans. Former Chivas USA midfielder Juan Pablo Garcia and American-born and raised left back Edgar Castillo are on the squad, as are Mexican national teamers Francisco Fonseca and Jose Antonio Castro, scorer of one of the five goals in Mexico's 5-0 win vs. the U.S. national team in the Gold Cup final.
Chicago will welcome back Mexican star Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who is expected to play tonight after missing the FIre's 1-0 win vs. Real Salt Lake on Saturday.
