Chicago Fire vs Colorado Rapids | Recap | April 20, 2019

Nicolas Gaitan contributed his first two MLS assists in his second start, Aleksandar Katai scored his long awaited first goal of the season and the Chicago Fire piled onto the Colorado Rapids' miserable start in a 4-1 victory at SeatGeek Stadium on Saturday.

C.J. Sapong tapped in his fourth goal of the season, Nemanja Nikolic added his third in as many games, and Djordje Mihailovic got his first as the Fire pushed their own unbeaten run to four games while sending the Rapids to a sixth straight defeat.

Kei Kamara scored his team-leading fifth of the season for visiting Colorado, remaining a bright spot for a side that has yet to win this season through eight matches. The Rapids' Jack Price was sent off in the 86th minute for a tackle from behind, following a video review.
