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.
