Los Angeles FC vs Chicago Fire Match Preview
Los Angeles have seen another tough away day as Seattle Sounders held them to a 1-1 draw last week, now hosting Chicago Fire for their Sunday’s clash in search of another return to the winning ways at Banc of California Stadium in need of points to build on their top spot in Western Conference.
LAFC have been furious and based their success on fine performances in front of the home fans, which will have them just as motivated now. They’ve been scoring numbers of goals too as they beat Sporting KC (2-1), Portland Timbers (4-1), Real Salt Lake (2-1), Cincinnati (2-0), and Seattle Sounders (4-1) along the way.
Chicago Fire sit just outside the Eastern Conference top 7 but they’ve seen disappointing displays and narrow losses at both New York City (1-0) and Montreal Impact (1-0) last week, struggling to convert their chances with an early goal conceded at Yankee Stadium and a late one at Stade Saputo.
Men in Red have thus seen their four-match unbeaten streak ended and Veljko Paunovic will be desperate to rediscover their fine form in the final third, as Charles Sapong and Nemanja Nikolic led the side to eight goals in four outings beforehand.
We do feel the visitors will put on a great challenge in Los Angeles but we don’t see them putting a dent in LAFC’s perfect run here early on, as we now go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/5 with bet365.
Indeed, we’ve seen Los Angeles FC scoring and conceding numbers of goals and this promises another exciting contest at Banc of California Stadium, as we now also back it with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with William Hill.
