UNDRAFTED

FC Cincinnati Grind Out 1-0 Victory Over Chicago Fire

FC Cincinnati's perfect home record continued as they maintained a 9-0-0 record at TQL Stadium this season, a streak matched only by the 2020 Philadelphia Union.

FC Cincinnati continued their incredible run of form with a hard-fought 1-0 win over the Chicago Fire. The victory, which marked their sixth consecutive regular-season triumph and on top of the Supporter Shield standings. 


Arias Sets Up Acosta

The lone shot on goal in the match proved to be the game-changer. Santiago Arias, providing his first assist of the season, delivered a precision long ball over the top and into the box, setting up Acosta for his match-winning strike. 


Defensive Resilience

While Cincinnati's attacking prowess earned them the victory, credit must also be given to their solid defensive performance. Goalkeeper Roman Celentano demonstrated his class and secured his eighth clean sheet of the season, leaving him trailing only Stefan Frei of Seattle Sounders FC in the race for the most shutouts in MLS this season. 


Historical Milestones

FC Cincinnati's perfect home record continued as they maintained a 9-0-0 record at TQL Stadium this season, a streak matched only by the 2020 Philadelphia Union. The Orange and Blue's exceptional form on home soil mirrors the success of the 2002 San Jose Earthquakes, who hold the record for the longest home-winning streak at the beginning of an MLS campaign with 10 victories. 


Looking Ahead

With the victory over Chicago Fire, FC Cincinnati's winning streak shows no signs of slowing down. Their attention now turns to the upcoming U.S. Open Cup Quarterfinals clash on Tuesday against Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC. Pittsburgh defeated rivals Columbus Crew to book their spot against FCC.
