Chicago Fire vs New York City Match Preview
New York City are an MLS rarity in that their away record is better than their home results this season, and that makes them look a good bet to win at Chicago Fire.
Home victories and goalfests are the usual betting staples in MLS but New York City are bucking the trend on both counts – they have won their last three away matches 2-0.
Although the team from the Big Apple are a little off the pace in the Eastern Conference standings, they have up to three games in hand on all of the teams above them and suffered only one defeat in 2019.
Domenec Torrent’s side have collected 13 points from the last 15 available to them and certainly been making hay in the first half of a run of four consecutive road trips, which will be followed by four straight games at the Yankee Stadium in the Bronx which is their home.
Chicago Fire will be happy with their form at the SeatGeek Stadium having scored 11 goals in winning their last three fixtures there, albeit the quality of opposition was not on New York City’s level.
Therefore, we will back the club nicknamed the Pigeons to again produce their successful formula on their travels and show they have what it takes to be true contenders come the business end of the MLS campaign.
