Chicago Fire vs Toronto FC Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

Chicago Fire suffered yet another away defeat, as the club lost 3-0 against Montreal Impact. The home team made an excellent start with Ignacio Piatti’s sixth minute goal. Matteo Mancosu doubled their advantage with a penalty in the 37th minute, while Piatti scored with a brilliant long-range effort just a minute later. Toronto returned to form at the BMO Field with a 4-1 win over Portland Timbers. It was a brilliant attacking performance from the home team with Sebastian Giovinco having a role in all the goals scored by Justin Morrow (2), Victor Vasquez, and Marco Delgado. Diego Valeri was able to score a late consolation for Portland. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Toronto have won the last five games against Chicago Fire, while they were also successful in the last visit to the Toyota Park. Even though Chicago Fire are unbeaten at home this season, confidence is extremely low after four defeats in the last five. Toronto are unbeaten in the last three on the road. I would go with a draw. Sebastian Giovinco has five goals in his five games against Chicago Fire. He has failed to score against this opponent only once since coming to the MLS in 2015. Even though Giovinco has scored only two goals in his last five league matches, he is a great pick to score at any time in the game.

Draw – 11/10

Sebastian Giovinco to score anytime – 6/4

Chicago Fire Preview

The last few weeks have been extremely tough for Chicago Fire, as the club has suffered four defeats in the last five games. The troubles begun as soon as the club have started receiving more of the away matches. The 2017 MLS fixtures panned out in such a way that Chicago played majority of their early league matches at home. The club has been on the road in four out of the last five league matches and have lost all of their away games. Chicago have slipped out of the top two places and are now down to third in the table. Nemanja Nikolic remains the club’s top scorer with 16 league goals.

Chicago Fire Team News

Chicago Fire come into the game still without Jorge Bava (elbow) and John Goossens (ankle) due to injury.

Toronto FC Preview

The last few weeks have seen Toronto recover from a surprise defeat against FC Dallas. However, the team is still far from their best, as they have picked up only two wins in the last five league matches. Sebastian Giovinco continues to pull the strings for Toronto, as he has been having a major impact on the club’s play – despite not being prolific in front of goal. The club’s biggest boost is the home form with four wins in the last five. On the road, though, Toronto have just one win in the last five. Sebastian Giovinco has 11 league goals, but he also has six assists to his name.

Toronto FC Team News

Nick Hagglund (ligament) and Steven Beitashour (pancreatitis) are the players unavailable for Toronto FC.
