Chicago Fire vs Real Salt Lake
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 23rd June 2019
Kick off at 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: SeatGeek Stadium (Bridgeview).
Real Salt Lake will be making the trip to the SeatGeek Stadium on Sunday where they take on Chicago Fire, hoping to bring an end to their dismal three-match losing streak.
The latter have not been faring much better either, and are also without a win in their previous three matches. Their last match in the league was against Atlanta United who sealed the win through a brace from Josef Martinez.
In comparison, Mike Petke’s side slumped to a much more bitter loss. Their recent league fixture against New York City Bulls, saw them picking the ball out of the net four times while failing to find a single consolation goal throughout the ninety minutes. His side have conceded more than they have scored this season already and it isn’t helping them go back to winning ways.
With nineteen points they are currently seventh in the table while their counterparts are ninth in the Eastern Conference with eighteen points.

Chicago Fire vs Real Salt Lake Prediction
It is quite evident from the recent results that both the teams are going through a bit of a rough patch. However, it is likely that the Chicago Fire will find the win on Sunday, albeit by a slender margin.
The visitors have been at the receiving end of six goals in their last two matches in the league and have found the back of the net just once. Their run of form is certainly not something that they will be looking to when they take on Veljko Paunovic’s side.
Prior to the latter’s recent loss, the squad put on a much better performance and held DC United to a 3-3 draw.
Both the teams are likely to find the back of the net in their clash on Sunday while the win is likely to swing in favor of the home team.
