One of the most exciting matches of the US Open Cup eight-finals is going to be contested between Atlanta United and Chicago Fire.
The hosts are the top placed side in the Eastern Conference and they are performing very well lately. They haven’t lost in the last five occasions in all competitions and Josef Martinez and the lads have been the most efficient side in their group. They have been playing pretty secure at home pitch where they’ve lost just two times.
Chicago Fire are fighting for the place in the MLS playoffs and they have the same number of points as Orlando City, however they’ve been in a much better form than their rivals. Veljko Paunovic’s side tied a streak of four matches without a defeat and they have improved their productivity lately. In the previous round of this competition, the visitors eliminated Columbus Crew at away ground.
Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire: Head-to-head
These two sides faced each other three times so far in their history and we haven’t seen a draw in their encounters. The hosts managed to book two victories while Chicago Fire celebrated in the third. Their matches have been pretty efficient so far.
Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire: Prediction
Atlanta United are favourites in this one however they won’t have an easy job. They tied two wins when playing in front of the home crowd and they might be closer to the victory in this one as well.
The visitors have been involved in high scoring matches lately and in their last seven clashes the crowd was able to see both teams scoring at least once. The hosts could be able to follow that pace and provide another efficient clash.
