Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire
USA – MLS
Date: Saturday, 7 May 2022
Kick-off at 23:00 UK / 24:00 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Both teams lost the last 2 league fixtures and they will be hoping to change the scenery here. On this Saturday, Atlanta United is set to host Chicago Fire at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Atlanta United is at the 8th spot on the standing with 11 points from 9 games. They won 3 times in the league while drew twice and lost on 4 other occasions. The hosts are unbeaten in 18 of their last 21 home matches in Major League Soccer and they need only 2 more points to get into the Play Off spot.

Atlanta will be hoping to bounce back here following the 2-1 MLS losing effort in their last game against Montreal Impact. The Five Stripes haven’t won in a month since beating DC United by 1-0, losing thrice and drawing once in their next four outings.

On the other hand, Chicago Fire resides below at the 13th position on the table with 10 points. Of the 9 matches played, they won thrice while lost on 5 other occasions. Things have not been going that well in front of goal for Chicago recently, with the side failing to score in 4 of the last 5 games.

The Illinois outfit have won only twice in the 2022 campaign so far, both victories coming in back to back games against DC United and Sporting Kansas in March. They lost the previous league fixture by 1-2 over New York red Bulls.

Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire Prediction

Both teams are desperate for a victory as they’re currently going through a dry spell.

Atlanta United has enjoyed playing at home recently, with the side currently unbeaten in 4 games. They are on an unbeaten run of 11 home games in their Major League Soccer participation.

Meanwhile, Chicago Fire have won just 3 of their last 20 away matches in MLS. They even fired blanks in 6 games this season and that is 67% of matches.

Considering the excellent home performance, we feel that a win for Atlanta United is up for cards.
