New England Revolution will look to secure their first victory of this season when they welcome Chicago Fire on Saturday night. The visitors also started the new campaign with a loss away from home.
Squad from Boston was unsuccessful against Illinois’ representative in the last five official matches, winning just one encounter.
Bookies are slightly favoring the home team with 2.10 odds to win this match. Team Fire stood bravely against the reigning champions last weekend though, and they have the quality to compete with the best.

New England Revolution vs Chicago Fire Prediction
The Revolution have started the new 2020 campaign last weekend in Montreal and started perfectly with an early goal. But after that, they gave up on possession in midfield and conceded twice and lost the match.
Team from Boston was inconsistent during the pre-season period too, winning two and losing two out of five matches total. We don’t see any value in backing them to win this match.
In our opinion, Chicago are slightly better on form. They had a great match against the champions Seattle in Washington last Sunday and lost the game in stoppage time after having a lead. This is why draw or away win is our first pick here.
The last six matches between these opponents either had three goals plus or ended with both teams scoring at least once.
