Bastian Schweinsteiger lifted Chicago Fire to a much-needed MLS win, while Orlando City were thrashed on Saturday.
Schweinsteiger side-footed in a Matt Polster cutback in the 59th minute to help the Fire to a 1-0 win over Montreal Impact at Stade Saputo.
Deian Boldor had been sent off for Montreal just after half-time, and Chicago made the most of their numerical advantage.
The win saw the Fire end a four-match losing run, and they sit third in the Eastern Conference.

Orlando have also been in bad form and it continued as they were crushed 4-0 by the New England Revolution.
Kei Kamara scored a hat-trick and Teal Bunbury sealed New England’s win, as Orlando’s winless league run was extended to eight matches.
