Chicago Fire vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Toyota Park.
Chicago are the most pleasant shock of the first part of the season in Major League Soccer.
The Fire will be looking to grab their seventh consecutive win on the home pitch this Saturday when they host Orlando City at Toyota Park.
Veljko Paunovic is doing miracles with the weakest team from the last term of MLS.
The Serbian manager currently holds the second position on the East having won as many as 31 points in 16 matches of the new season. This is the same amount of points Chicago won in the entire last season (34 games).
Paunovic can be proud of his defensive line which allowed only a single goal in last four matches.
The Lions still hold the high 4th position in the Eastern Conference standings in spite of being winless in last four matches in all competitions.
Jason Kreis decided to mix up his lineup for the US Open clash with Miami which is why the lower division outfit claimed a 1-3 win on the road seven days ago.
The team’s confidence is somewhat improved after a 1-1 draw with the reigning champions Seattle Sounders on Wednesday.
Chicago Fire vs Orlando City: Head to head
Four of the last five head to head encounters between the two teams ended without a winner.
This includes a goalless draw at Camping World Stadium earlier in the month.
Chicago Fire vs Orlando City: Prediction
Even though Chicago Fire are winless in last five meetings with Orlando, we have no other option but to back them to pick up the victory.
The hosts are among the best defensive teams in the competition (3rd defnse in the league at the moment) and we’d not be surprised to see them keeping a clean sheet against the Lions.
