Chicago Fire vs Cincinnati
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Wednesday, 25 August 2020
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 1:30 CET
Venue: Soldier Field (Chicago).
Chicago Fire will have time to snap out of their losing streak in the schedule lately when they face FC Cincinnati in yet another clash in the new edition of MLS. The host is on a three-game losing streak in the campaign, following a 3-0 home loss on the road against Columbus Crew last time out in the schedule.
FC Cincinnati started the season with a slightly better note than the home team. They are three points ahead of the latter in the table with a three-game unbeaten streak in the league. Jeff Berding’s boys will visit after a goalless draw at home against DC United in the last league clash. It is likely to see the visitors make the host work for the three points from the game.

Chicago Fire vs Cincinnati Prediction
Most of their h2h meetings have resulted in draws, and they have never scored over three goals in any of their clashes since 2017. In the last three h2h matches in 2019, Cincinnati is the only team with a win at this venue; where both teams have scored in both fixtures held here.
In the current league season, both teams haven’t averaged over 1 goal in the table. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter. Besides, it will not also be unlikely to see both teams in the scoresheet by the final whistle.
