It would be fair to say that Chicago Fire have been struggling on their own patch of late, with eight of their previous ten MLS fixtures ending in defeat, and they are currently on a run of four games without a goal as well. Atlanta Utd had not been in great form on the road themselves prior their next match, but they had still only lost once in seven.
Chicago Fire have not been involved in too many thrillers recently, with seven of their previous nine MLS matches producing a maximum of two goals. This has also been the case in 13 of the last 18 Atlanta Utd away games at the top table of the MLS, so defences should be on top when the two teams lock horns with one another.
Over the course of their last 21 away matches in the MLS, Atlanta Utd have been involved in just five contests in which they have both scored and conceded during the same 91 minutes. What’s more, 13 of the previous 18 Chicago Fire games at this level have seen at least one of the two sides pitch a shutout, so it would come as a surprise to see both teams score.
Chicago Fire vs Atlanta Utd Prediction
Although promotion-chasing Chicago Fire have been renowned for playing some swashbuckling football this season, four of Chicago Fire previous five games at this level have actually produced under 2.5 goals. This has also been the case in six consecutive Atlanta Utd matches in the MLS, so expectations should be lowered ahead of this contest.
