Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 10th June 2017
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Park, Illinois.
Chicago Fire come into this game after drawing a nervy 0-0 match over Orlando. The club have been in superb form winning 4 of their last 5 games and are in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference. They have a 5 point safety gap to fall out of the play-offs and they will feel another two wins will be needed at least to feel more comfortable.
At home in Toyota Park, Chicago Fire are unbeaten. From 7 games they have won 6 games and drawn 1. Atlanta United are in 8th position but are just two points shy of finding a play-off position. Recent form has been patchy, the club’s two back to back wins over Houston Dynamo and New York City came back to Earth when they lost 3-1 to Vancouver Whitecaps last week.
Atlanta have not won in their last 3 games away from home and from a possible 24 points they have earned just 9.

Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United: Prediction
The form is with the home side and it’s difficult to go against them. Chicago have been superb at home and will want their revenge over Atlanta who destroyed them earlier in the season. We will go for a home win and we also feel that both teams will be able to score as Chicago Fire do not have the best defence.
