DC United vs Chicago Fire Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

DC United suffered a heavy home defeat, as they lost 4-0 to Philadelphia Union. The two teams were evenly poised for much of the game, even as Haris Medunjanin scored for Philadelphia after 39 minutes. Luciano Acosta’s sending off in the 55th minute changed the game, and the away team capitalised on the numerical advantage by scoring through Oguchi Onyewu, Fabrice Picault, and Fabian Herbers. Chicago Fire produced an excellent home performance to get a 4-1 win over the defending MLS Cup champions Seattle Sounders. Nemanja Nikolic continued his excellent form with a brace, while David Accam and Luis Solignac scored in between. Clint Dempsey scored the only goal for Seattle Sounders.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chicago Fire have an extremely poor record against DC United. In the head-to-head meetings between the two teams, Chicago Fire’s last win in a competitive game was back in 2013. In the last four meetings at the RFK stadium, DC United have grabbed a win. Yet, they have failed to score in four out of the six home games this season. Confidence is low amongst DC United, while Chicago Fire have scored in four out of the five away games. I would back a surprise Chicago Fire win. Games between these two teams have often been high-scoring. Chicago Fire have averaged a goal per game on the road. United have failed to score in the last two home matches. I would back a Chicago Fire 2-0 win.

Chicago Fire win – 13/5

Chicago Fire 2-0 win – 20/1

DC United Preview

DC United are once again showing signs of struggle at home, as the club has now failed to score in the last two games at the RFK stadium. In fact, DC United have failed to score in four out of the six home matches this season. The makeshift defence adopted against Philadelphia managed to hold its own until the red card for Luciano Acosta. It appears that at this moment in time, DC United would rather play away from home. The club has scored more away goals (5 goals) in just two matches than they have done at home in six games (4 goals). Luciano Acosta is the top scorer with three league goals.

DC United Team News

Nick DeLeon (groin), Patrick Nyarko (muscle), Robin Vincent (meniscus), Julian Buscher (leg), and Eric Klenofsky (ligament) are the players unavailable for DC United.

Chicago Fire Preview

Chicago Fire produced another stellar home performance to register a win over reigning MLS Cup holders Seattle Sounders. The club has managed four wins in the five home games. However, they are still winless in the five away matches and have taken just two points out of a possible 15 on the road. On the positive side, though, Chicago Fire have failed to score only once in the five away games. The biggest positive, though, is the form of Nemanja Nikolic, who has scored eight goals to become the joint MLS 2017 top scorer along with Erick Torres.

Chicago Fire Team News

Juninho (ankle), Patrick Doody (ill), and John Goossens (ankle) are the players unavailable for Chicago Fire.
