Chicago started the first half well, with a goal from Durán just before half-time

Chicago continued to pile on the pressure in the second period and were rewarded, when Shaqiri found the net in the 64th minute. However, Inter refused to lie down and managed to pull back a goal from Higuaín in the 76th minute. Chicago in turn, then responded just before the full time increasing their lead with a second effort from Durán, leaving the final score at 3-1.

Substitutions for Chicago included Andre Reynolds Ii, Bornstein, Espinoza and Bezerra for Gutierrez, Pineda, Mueller and Durán, respectively. Inter brought on Bryce Duke, Jones and Lassiter, to replace Vassilev, Gibbs and Mota.
