Draw

Heinze saw his Atlanta team fail to score in the opening game. Since taking over in January, Heinze has been in charge of three games in all competitions and Atlanta have scored only two goals. The offensive approach from the team is likely to help cancel out the push from Chicago Fire, who were offensively brilliant in their opening match against New England.

Both teams to score – yes

Chicago Fire have the capability to find the back of the net with some amazing moves. The team set the pitch on fire in the game against New England before being pegged back in the second-half. This is a fixture which has consistently produced goals with Chicago beating a slight edge of 10-7 in the last six meetings.

Total goals over 2.5

The attacking prowess of Atlanta and Chicago are excellent and this should produce an entertaining match which has goals from both teams. Chicago were quite effervescent against New England Revolution in the first match and could have easily scored more than two goals. Even though Atlanta drew a blank against Orlando, Gabriel Heinze is just getting warmed up in his role.

Atlanta Utd vs Chicago Fire: Team News and Analysis

Atlanta Utd

Atlanta’s fortunes can only improve after a mediocre outing against Orlando in the opening game. The return of players like Josef Martinez can help Atlanta in the offensive any of the pitch, where they seemed to lack the additional bit of quality. After a disappointing campaign in which the team failed to reach the play-offs, Atlanta need to remain solid in the first few matches.

Chicago Fire

A repeat of the 2020 season could be a nightmare for Chicago Fire, who were unable to maintain good performances over the entire 90 minutes. The opening game against New England Revolution witnessed more of the same, as Chicago opened the game brilliantly but then later lost the opportunity to take three points. Chicago Fire will be without Carlos Terán, Elliot Collier, Fabian Herbers, Kenneth Kronholm, and Stanislav Ivanov.
