The Chicago Fire and LA Galaxy each did not record a shot on goal in a 0-0 draw Saturday night in front of more than 30,000 fans at Soldier Field.

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Douglas Costa each appeared to give the Galaxy (4-2-1) a 1-0 lead in the second half, but both goals were disallowed on offside calls. Costa’s was waived off through video review.

Kacper Przybylko had a great chance to give the Fire (2-1-4) a 1-0 lead in the 62nd minute, but failed to get a shot off on a breakaway. Chicago goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina, who is only 17, posted his fifth clean sheet of the season, and ninth of his career.

The Fire saw captain Rafael Czichos ( MLS COVID-19 health and safety protocols) and Miguel Navarro (left knee) return to game action. Fabian Herbers (right hip) and Xheredan Shaqiri (left calf), however, missed their second straight game with injury. They each remain day-to-day.
