FC Cincinnati vs Chicago Fire
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 3 September 2020
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Nippert Stadium.
The Orange and Blue are one of the newest teams in the league, and are not yet considered to be on the level where they are expected to have a fighting chance against the veterans here.
In fact, they had finished dead-last in overall standings in the whole of MLS, and had scored the least number of goals, as well as had conceded the most.
Meanwhile, Raphael Wicky’s men have had a terrible start to their season this time around. They have lost a considerable number of games so far, and are desperately trying to get their campaign on track.
However, one thing that gives them hope is that, they had dominatingly defeated this same opponent four days back, and will hope to repeat the feat this Thursday as well – which would give them an extra three points on the board.
Cincinnati vs Chicago Fire: Head-to-head (h2h)

- At this stadium, the hosts are still searching for their first win, as well as their first goal.
- The latest encounter at this venue had ended in a goalless draw.
Cincinnati vs Chicago Fire: Prediction
Jaap Stam’s men are one of the weakest and most inexperienced teams in the whole competition. Staying true to this statement, they had finished bottom-most in the whole league the last season.
On top of that, they had also lost to this same opponent just four days back, and that too for a huge scoreline of 3-0. Moreover, they have also not scored against this rival in the past two meetings.
Finally, Chicago Fire are desperate for a win, and they will give their 100% on the pitch to secure the three points.
