Chicago Fire vs New York City FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 25th May 2019
Kick-off at 20.30 UK/ 21.30 CET
Venue: SeatGeek Stadium (Bridgeview).
Chicago fails to perform once they are away from home. Just the last match-day, they lost to San Jose, falling prey to a 1-4 scoreline. But, on the other hand, they have delivered good wins at home on a consistent basis.
As of now, the team is 9th on the table, but a surplus of just two points will see them jump at least four spots higher.
New York has three games in hand, and if utilized well, they could find themselves at the top of the table. Along with Philadelphia, City is the only team in the conference to avoid a loss in the last five match-days.

Chicago Fire vs New York City FC Prediction
City won four of their last five games and was unbeaten in 11 of their last 12. On the road, they won the last three in a row and scored two or more goals in five of their last six attempts. The team has also put great numbers against Chicago in h2h ties.
They recorded five of the last six such wins and found the back of the net against Fire in eight of the last nine encounters.
Considering City has the pole position within sight with their three games in hand, count on them to deliver a masterful performance. But be aware that Chicago has the home status, and that City has never kept a clean sheet at this venue.
Moreover, six of the last nine h2h clashes and 100% of every encounter at this venue had goals from both teams. As such, expect the same to happen this Saturday.
