New York Red Bulls vs Chicago Fire
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 29 June 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Harrison).
Along with the lowest-placed Cincinnati, Chicago is the only team in the competition to stay winless in the last five match-days.
As season passes on, their chances to make the playoffs are slowly slipping away. For now, they are three points away from the mix, and if the team fails to get their act together somewhere in the recent future, a disappointing campaign lies ahead for them.
Opponents Red Bulls, on the other hand, saw their unbeaten run come to an end the last day. It was within reason though, as they were taking on the toppers of Eastern Conference, Philadelphia Union. But still, the manner in which they lost could be considered as a minor blotch.
The Bulls, on the road, had raced to a two-goal lead and held the scoreline till the hour-mark, but the hosts made a valiant comeback after that with three unanswered goals, to take the three points and the win.

They also let in two or more goals in four of their last six battles, and importantly, on the road, they are winless in the last nine trips, and in 22 of the last 24 as well. They conceded two or more goals in the last four away ties while failing to score in four of their last seven.
