Chicago Fire vs DC United Predictions
Chicago Fire are struggling to compete again in the Eastern Conference of the Major League Soccer standings. Despite possessing some star turns in their squad including striker CJ Sarpong and former Manchester United and Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, the Fire only managed to finish 10th in their side of the table last term and they sit in the same position at this stage of the 2019 campaign with 23 games played.
Boss Veljko Paunovic must be worrying for his future if he cannot start to produce some better results from his team than they have managed of late. The Fire have picked up just one draw and four defeats in their last five matches in all competitions and indeed they’ve failed to win their last three home games in front of the SeatGeek Stadium faithful. Can they bounce back with a win here at 8/11 with Bet365?
DC United were one of the stories of the season in the 2018 Major League Soccer campaign as Wayne Rooney’s arrival in the USA sparked an excellent run that saw them rise into the play-offs in the late stages of the season. With the momentum from that spell of form behind them, and in their first full campaign at their new purpose-built arena, DCU had high hopes for the 2019 term and they’ve lived up to them so far.
As things stand,Ben Olsen’s charges sit in third place in the Eastern Conference table, just four points behind the current leaders Philadelphia Union, but recent form has been shaky at best, particularly away from home where the men from the capital have picked up just one win in their last seven matches. Can they turn that poor road form around to put the pressure on the top two spots with a win here at 10/3 with Ladbrokes.
This time around though we’re backing a share of the spoils. The last two Major League Soccer meetings between these two elder statesmen of the league have ended in ties and indeed 19 of the previous meetings between the two have ended level. DCU are the better side on paper and in the better form, but home advantage counts for more in MLS than in other leagues and that’s why we fancy the Fire to hold them to a draw at 3/1 with PaddyPower.
Another fixture of Major League Soccer is high-scoring games but we’re backing this one to go against the grain. DCU have failed to score in two of their last three matches away from home in the league, while the Fire have only managed to score three times in their last five fixtures in all competitions. That’s why we’re backing under 2.5 goals to be scored in this one at odds of 13/10 with Bet365.
