Sunday’s football game at Soldier Field pits together Chicago Fire and Philadelphia Union, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Chicago Fire are stuck at the bottom of the standings, with the team losing each of their previous three league fixtures.
Philadelphia Union proved their worth in the hard-fought 1-0 win over Columbus, and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Sunday.
In their last meeting in the Major League Soccer Philadelphia defeated Chicago 2-0, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered. All Fontana, Ilson, de Vries, and Ranjitsingh have been struggling with injuries of late for the away team.
Real Salt Lake will look to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Seattle Sounders when they take on Houston Dynamo at Rio Tinto Stadium.
The start of the new season has been a mixed bag for Real Salt Lake, who sit in the seventh place in the standings ahead of the visit of Houston.
A man to watch in the home team will be Slovakia midfielder Albert Rusnak, who opened his goalscoring account in the defeat to Seattle.
The Dynamo, on the other hand, are only one point clear of Real Salt Lake in the Western Conference.
Houston aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and seeing that both sides will go for a win in Sunday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Argentina attacker Maximiliano Urruti is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
