Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 1st June 2019
Kick-off at 23.00 UK/ 00.00 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta).
Atlanta may be suffering a slight loss of form in overall ties, but they are definitely having a great time at home. Their last home game saw the hosts defeating Orlando with a 1-0 scoreline. The home team took the lead early on and showed great character in holding on to it till the very end.
Chicago, meanwhile, is entirely clueless on the road. Their last trip saw them conceding four goals in a row by San Jose before the desperate visitors were able to put in a consolation goal. Their humiliation becomes even more apparent when it is noted that all four goals were scored by a single player, Chris Wondolowski.

Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire Prediction
Atlanta won their last three home ties in a row. The team was unbeaten in 19 of their last 20 home fixtures and won 14 of these as well. The team also managed to keep seven clean sheets in their last ten attempts at home.
On the other hand, Chicago is winless in their last six away ties and was so in 18 of their last 20 as well.
Going on, Atlanta has two games in hand, and if they manage to record a win in at least one, they could take a podium spot, and two wins out of two will take them to the pole spot. There’ll be no shortage of motivation in the Atlanta camp for sure.
Count in the home advantage, and it’s almost a given that the hosts will have a great time in this tie.
