Orlando City vs Chicago Fire
2018 MAjor League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 27th May 2018
Kick off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Orlando City Stadium (Orlando).

Orlando City need to recover quickly after losing 2 games in a row and dropping to 5th place. Orlando were on brilliant form and had put a winning run of 3 games together but defeats against Atlanta United and Toronto have raised eyebrows. The club are still in a strong position though but they will want to turn around their form ahead of this game.

From the 7 games played at home so far Orlando have won 4, and what is encouraging for them is that they are averaging over 2 goals a game when playing at home.

Chicago Fire have got off to a slow start and are in 11th place on 11 points and are 8 points behind their hosts. They have lost 6 of their 11 games played so far and lost 3 of their past 4 games. It has not been a good last couple of weeks for them with back to back losses which included conceding 3 goals in each game.

From 4 away games they have only won once, although this was significant given that it came against a better side than them in New York Red Bulls. This was one bright spark in their season so far but overall Chicago Fire have been poor.

Orlando City vs Chicago Fire Prediction

Chicago Fire have a decent record when coming here and perhaps we are seeing a period of discontent with the home side so we will take on the Fire to win this game but on the handicap to cover our bet. Chicago should at least be able to score a goal which would justify our chances of winning this one.
