Source: Nazarit to get two-game suspension


Chicago Fire forward Cristian Nazarit will be suspended for two matches, according to a source.

The MLS Disciplinary Committee is expected to suspend the Colombian forward for Chicago's matches against Real Salt Lake on Wednesday and the New York Red Bulls on Sunday.

Nazarit was issued a yellow card in the 59th minute during the Fire's 1-1 draw against the New England Revolution. Nazarit hit a Revs player with his arm, then when he was shown a yellow, reacted with shock toward the booking.

On Tuesday, the committee officially suspended Salt Lake's Jean Alexandre for one match for a reckless tackle during RSL's 1-1 draw against D.C. United on Saturday.

The Fire (2-4-9) and Salt Lake (6-3-4) kick off at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Toyota Park.
