Chicago Fire to Win

The Fire were held to a 2-2 draw by the New England Revolution in the security of their home surroundings. Since then, they have lost fixtures on the road. On the contrary, Philadelphia Union have played all three of their fixtures at home, suffering defeat in two and drawing one. Travelling, fatigue and the number 1 tag is weighing heavily on Union, which puts Fire in a prime position to claim the points on offer.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Barring their defeats to New York-based outfits, the Red Bulls and City, respectively, both Chicago Fire and Philadelphia Union have seen over three goals in their competitive outings. Union were also held to a 1-1 draw at home by Atlanta United in the CONCACAF Champions League in midweek. With both sides showing a tendency to concede goals and also get on the scoreboard themselves, expect the Over 2.5 come to fruition.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

In their most recent MLS home fixture, Chicago Fire conceded two and scored an equal number. Philadelphia have only been on the road once, claiming an impressive 0-3 victory against Atlanta United in the CONCACAF Champions League. With both sides needing points to rejuvenate their ailing season, goals are expected on either side of the pitch.

Chicago Fire vs Philadelphia Union Fixture Preview

Chicago Fire

Raphaël Wicky took over from Veljko Paunovic and did not have the best of times in the dugout. During his reign, Chicago have slumped down the points table and finished the last campaign eleventh in the Eastern Conference. They need to arrest their decline or Paunovic will be looking for employment elsewhere. The Chicago faithful will hope the squad manages to turn around their fortunes and all eyes will be on Luka Stojanovic, who has two goals from his three outings this season.

Philadelphia Union

It has been a remarkable fall from grace for Philadelphia Union. The reigning Eastern Conference champions and the number 1 side in MLS for the preceding year, is struck in bottom table obscurity. While they have progressed in the CONCACAF Champions League, much more is expected from then in the league. The reason for their dismal performances can be attributed to their profligate attack, which has only managed to hit the back of the net once. Jamiro Gregory Monteiro Alvangera and it is hoped more of his teammates will join the one-man bandwagon.
