Chicago Fire vs Montreal Impact
Date: Thursday, 10 May 2018
Kick-Off at 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: Toyota Park, Bridgeview.
Chicago Fire finally have an easier fixture ahead of them after playing the likes of New York RB, Toronto and Atlanta United in last three rounds. They are about to play host to Montreal Impact on Wednesday evening at Toyota Park.
The visitors from Canada lost three on the bounce on the road, proving out to be super vulnerable at the back allowing 11 goals in the process. Montreal did manage to clinch the victory at the weekend, but their defensive line once again revealed plenty of holes allowing two goals in a 4-2 victory over New England.
The team led by Veljko Paunovic will thus have a nice chance to return on the winning ways in front of the home fans where they lost last two ties to LA Galaxy and Atlanta United.
Chicago Fire vs Montreal Impact: Head-to-head
Montreal Impact lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of the 18th clash with Men in Red.
At home, Chicago won three and drew two of eight meetings with the Impact.
One of these losses came in the pre-season when Remi Garde’s squad took a1-2 victory in February this year.
Chicago Fire vs Montreal Impact: Prediction
Last year’s league’s top scorer Nemanja Nikolic should have plenty of room to add to his fine five-goal tally past the struggling defense of Montreal’s here. The Hungarian striker bagged three goals in last five games and backing him as the anytime goalscorer looks to be a solid option at the 1.72 odds.
Remi Garde’s troops shipped as many as 18 goals in last five league matches, meaning Chicago Fire to score two or more goals should really be a banker at the 1.57 odds. Also, since Chicago’s defensive line has also been anything but meticulous at the start of the season, the value is nice in going for the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS bet at the odds of 1.80.
