Chicago Fire vs Cincinnati Preview & Picks


Chicago Fire held the Philadelphia Union in a 2-2 draw in their opening game of the new MLS season. 

Cincinnati could not break Toronto down in their first outing of the new season as they had to settle for a point in a goalless draw. 

  • Both sides were held to draws in their opening matches 
  • The pair have drawn five of their last 13 meetings 

Head To Head


Cincinnati have won five of their last 13 meetings, with Chicago winning three times and the other five ending in draws.

Chicago Fire Form 


The Chicago Fire were unable to make the most out of leading twice in the match as they were pegged back by the Philadelphia Union in a 2-2 draw. 

It will irritate the Fire that their second goal came in the 82nd minute and they could not hold out in injury time as the Union scored a 93rd minute equaliser, with this seeing the points shared on the day. 

With a draw in their opening clash and a game against a strong Cincinnati to come, the Fire would likely settle for a point against a side that they have struggled against in the past. 

Cincinnati Form 


Cincinnati were very disappointing in their opening match of the season as they failed to take advantage of enjoying the better of the chances against Toronto. 

Despite taking 17 shots to Toronto's nine, Cincinnati could only hit the target five times. Their profligacy in front of goal denied them a win in their opening match, and it means they arrive for this one looking to generate some much-needed momentum on the field. 

While Cincinnati have won five of their last 13 against the Fire, they have also had to share the points in five of their last 13, and we believe it will be more of the same in this match. 

Verdict

We are backing both sides to hit the back of the net in this one as the points are shared.
