Chicago Fire vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 16th September 2018
Kick off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Park (Bridgeview).
Chicago Fire are bottom of the Eastern conference and have no chance to make the play offs. Their recent form is poor having lost 4 games from their last 5, and they drew their last game against Colombus Crew which was even a surprise.
Chicago have won just 6 matches this season and lost 15 and at home they have the worst record in the conference with 4 wins. We have to go back to July for their last home victory.
Orlando City are just one place above Chicago and on the same points of 24 so these teams have their own personal battle of who might finish last in the conference and this game could go a long way to determining that outcome.
Orlando City have picked up just 2 points from their last possible 15 and their form is just as poor as Chicago’s, Orlando have the worst away record in the conference where from 39 points they have won just 6. They have not drawn any games on the road so far and have conceded 35 goals which is the most in the conference.

Chicago Fire v Orlando City : Prediction
Both sides are in very poor form and we don’t expect the match to start off brightly. But we will go for Chicago to get the win based on their last game, the fact they are at home and that they have a decent record at home v Orlando. The motivation will be to be lifted out of last spot in the conference. We expect goals to follow in the 2nd half and this will be our other selection for this match.
