Chicago Fire slump to a 2-1 home defeat to Real Salt Lake, who score through Alvaro Saborio and Luke Mulholland.
Real Salt Lake have hung on to claim a narrow 2-1 win away at Chicago Fire in the MLS.
The away side took the lead against the run of play as Alvaro Saborio blasted a fine effort past Sean Johnson from the edge of the box.
Chicago's Lovel Palmer almost equalised on the brink of half time, but his well-struck effort from inside the box found the side-netting.
However, they were caught on the break in the early stages of the second half as Devon Sandoval squared the ball for Luke Mulholland to tap in.
Chicago's pressure finally paid off late on as they earned a penalty, which Jeff Larentowicz coolly converted, but they could not find a second as they suffered defeat.
