Atlanta United vs Chicago Fire Match Preview
Atlanta United host Chicago Fire just days after doing the same for Minnesota United in search of a return to the winning ways after two consecutive losses, where New York Red Bulls (1-0) and Real Salt Lake (2-1) both secured the points in very narrow occasions.
Five Stripes have indeed been a very tough side to score against but it was good for nothing over the past two weeks, which will have Frank de Boer searching for a cure and a way to lift his men’s team spirits ahead of the Saturday’s clash – where a winning streak in front of the home fans surely comes in good.
Chicago Fire have struggled for pick-me-ups lately too and now have two tough away days on their hands, looking to bounce from a 4-1 loss at SJ Earthquakes and a 1-1 home draw against New York City on their trips to DC United and Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Men in Red have struggled for points on the road and this will feel even more worrying, as the loss at the Earthquakes was their third in four trips and just a goalless draw at Los Angeles FC has to serve as a boost to their confidence. They’ve struggled to score goals and we don’t see them ending the streak mainly for it.
We’ll thus Atlanta United to secure all three points and going for a Home win really feels like buying money for old rope at 8/15 with bet365, already seeing many big hitters lumping as Five Stripes look very good in front of the home fans.
However, we don’t see many goals between the sides and with the hope we’ll see a clean sheet as well as a narrow occasion, we’re now also backing Under 2.5 Goals FT at 6/5 with bet365 – which seems like great value as both sides enjoy such clashes lately.
