USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 14 July 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: SeatGeek Stadium (Bridgeview).

Cincinnati registered a rare win the last day, and might be brimming with confidence. They were on a losing run and rallied at their home to post a 3-2 win over Houston Dynamo.

At present, they are placed dead-last in the table and has conceded the most number of goals in the competition. Their away record has been an absolute disaster, with them on an active streak of five losses in that setting.

Same is the case for Chicago with their away form, but the team has the home advantage for this game, where they managed to do anything worthy of their time in the MLS. The team has lost just a single home-tie till point and recorded wins in five of their total ten appearances there.

Considering their game in hand, a win in this game would place them as the best home squad in the conference.

As things stand, await an easy home win this Sunday in the Major League Soccer.
