DC United vs Chicago Fire
Major League Soccer (USA)
Date: Thursday, 30 May 2019
Kick-Off 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: Audi Field (Washington).
Two entirely opposite philosophies will come across each other on Wednesday evening as DC United are looking to regain the confidence and return to winning ways against conference rivals Chicago Fire at Audi Field.
The hosts still top the Easter Conference standings in spite of being winless in three consecutive league affairs. They struggled for goals lately failing to find the back of the net on more than two occasions in last three games. The rock-solid defense was the fundamental basis of their superb start to the new season anyways, but they need to find the attacking form as soon as possible if they are to challenge the regular season title.
DC United vs Chicago Fire: Head-to-head
It’s all tied at 22 wins apiece as teams head into their 64th head to head encounter.
Just one of past four H2H meetings between the two outfits saw both teams scoring.
Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they last met each other in late-October last year.
DC United vs Chicago Fire: Prediction
Chicago Fire have one of the deadliest attacking lines in the entire league with the likes of experienced MLS veterans Charles Sapong and Nemanja Nikolic leading the line. They have an equal share in 10 of team’s 21 goals so far in the season and will no doubts be the main threat to DC United’s goal on Wednesday.
However, DC United have a predator of their own in the like of Wayne Rooney. The former Manchester United star notched eight goals so far in the season. DC’s is problem is huge reliance on the experienced English forward.
Rooney should have plenty of room to deliver up front past the struggling defense of Chicago’s, though. The visitors shipped four goals in the previous away fixture against San Jose Earthquakes. You can have Rooney to score anytime at the odds of 1.72 here.
