Chicago Fire vs Seattle Sounders
Major League Soccer 2017
Date: 14th May 2017, Sunday
Kick-off at 2:00 UK / 3:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Park (Bridgeview).
Chicago Fire had the perfect opportunity to bag their away win of the season when they traveled to LA Galaxy last week. But they squandered a two-goal lead and ended up sharing the spoils. Their away record so far read 2 draws and 3 losses from 5 matches. But the highlight is the 11 goals conceded in the last four road games.
Coming back to the home turf, Chicago will be full of confidence. They picked up 3 wins and a draw from the 4 matches so far scoring a healthy 8 goals keeping 3 clean sheets.
Seattle Sounders fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat at home to Toronto FC last weekend. They haven’t started the season well and managed just 2 wins from the 9 matches so far. Away form has been decent for MLS standards as they managed a win and 2 draws from 5 matches, while suffering defeats in 2. It is pretty clear that they need to improve the home form in-order to push for the play-offs,

Chicago Fire vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction
Seattle is searching for some inspiration to turn around their fortunes. On another day, Chicago Fire could have been a perfect opponent, but right now they are facing a team who had made the home turf a fortress. However, we must not turn a blind eye to the h2h record and this is the main reason we think Sounders could get at least a point from this fixture.
