For Real Salt Lake it is all about their home form and if their league status was based just on home games they would be top of the conference. They have won 26 points from a possible 33 and have scored on average 2 goals a game at home.

Chicago Fire are in 8th place in the Eastern conference and are in the middle of a nightmare patch of form. They have lost 5 games in a row and put their play-off hopes in jeopardy.

On the road they have won just 2 games from 11 and come into this game having lost 3 matches in a row. On average they are conceding 2 goals a game.

  • 4 of the last 8 games have seen both teams to score.
  • Real Salt Lake are undefeated at home in their last 3 games.

Real Salt Lake vs Chicago Fire: Prediction

Both teams have poor form but there is something in the water or lake with the home side who have been superb in front of their home fans.

Given that they are facing a club who have such a poor record away from home and a poor recent form we have to go for the home side to get the win here.

We should expect to see some goals too and for smaller stakes we will back the correct score market.
