Columbus Crew vs Chicago Fire Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Columbus Crew have lost only one game at the MAPFRE Stadium since July 2017. Chicago Fire came in with a strong performance against Montreal but that was to be expected from Veljko Paunovic’s team at the Toyota Park. However, it is a different story with regard to the club’s away games and their head-to-head record against Crew. Chicago have just one away win this season, while they have been on the losing side in four out of the six visits to MAPFRE Stadium. I would opt for a Columbus Crew win.

Gyasi Zardes has been able to score just once in five games against Chicago Fire, but the 26-year-old has been enjoying a fine start to his Columbus Crew career after scoring six goals in 11 games. Zardes is the top scorer at Crew by a significant margin and he has scored the last five of his goals at home. I would go with Zardes to score anytime.

Columbus Crew win – 11/20

Zardes to score anytime – 20/21
