DC United vs Chicago Fire Match Preview
Wayne Rooney goes up against his former Manchester United team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger, whose Chicago Fire team are doing little to inspire confidence when they go away from home.
Away points are traditionally more difficult to collect in MLS, possibly due to the amount of travelling involved, but Chicago are making a worse job of it than any other side this year.
Two points collected from a possible 18 on the road so far is a poor return and a lack of goals scored has been the problem, the Fire having drawn a blank on three of their last four trips.
In fairness, they did well to draw 0-0 away to MLS Cup favourites Los Angeles FC, but it is purely down to their much superior home form that Schweinsteiger and Co are still in touch with those chasing the play-off places in the Eastern Conference.
They most definitely include DC United, even though the club captained by former England skipper Rooney have gone off the boil a little themselves recently by failing to win their last three games – all of which were away from home.
At Audi Field, however, United have kept four clean sheets out of seven and, given Chicago’s struggles when they leave the Windy City, another victory should come their way here.
