Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire Prediction
This season has been a total bust for the Chicago Fire team. None of their tactics or formations seemed to work. They fought valiantly at their homes. But their away record became their undoing. As the season comes to a close, they face another team on the road, and this time, it is none other than the toppers – Atlanta United.
The hosts have been nothing but magnificent at home. As they take charge for the MLS Quarter Finals, the home team will spare no chances to build confidence and momentum. Chicago will be dominated from the starting whistle itself. Expect goals on both halves and a win for the hosts by at least a two-goal margin.
