Montreal Impact vs Chicago Fire Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Montreal Impact’s incredible winning run came to an end with a 3-1 loss against Eastern Conference table leaders Toronto FC. Sebastien Giovinco provided the lead with a splendid free kick in the 41st minute, while Jozy Altidore doubled their advantage in the 52nd minute. Montreal Impact were not able to find a way past Toronto goalkeeper Alexander Bono until deep into injury time when Ignacio Piatti scored. However, the joy was short lived as Toronto managed a goal at the other end through Giovinco. Chicago Fire fell to a fourth consecutive defeat, as Minnesota United grabbed a 2-1 win at the Toyota Park. Goals from Abu Danladi provided Minnesota with a significant advantage before half-time, while David Accam scored the 77th minute goal that only turned out to be a consolation for the home team.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Montreal Impact have the better record over Chicago Fire in the recent six games between the two clubs, as Montreal have been able to come out with four wins compared to just one from Chicago Fire. The international break should not pose much of an issue for Chicago Fire, but the club are seriously at a disadvantage since this game is on the road. Chicago have only managed two wins from 13 away matches. I would back a victory for Montreal Impact. Ignacio Piatti has three goals in six matches against Chicago Fire. He has scored these three goals in the last three matches against this opponent. Piatti has scored at least once in the last five matches without exception. I would back this game to see Piatti score anytime in the game.

Montreal Impact win – 1/1

Ignacio Piatti to score anytime – 13/10

Montreal Impact Preview

Montreal Impact have been a team transformed in the last few weeks, as the club have been able to ride on the form of players like Ignacio Piatti and Blerim Dzemaili. Even after the defeat against Toronto, Montreal still have a strong record with four wins in the last five matches. Crucially, the chunk of 10 victories have come at the TCF Bank stadium for Montreal. On the road, the club has only two wins in 12 matches. Ignacio Piatti is the Montreal’s leading scorer in 2017 with 15 league goals.

Montreal Impact Team News

Thomas de Villardi (Achilles tendon), Marc Burch (hernia), Vadim Demidov (knee), Bernardo Anor (leg), Sam Cronin (unknown), Justin Davis (foot), Christian Ramirez (hamstring), and Bashkim Kadrii (personal reasons) are unavailable for the game.

Chicago Fire Preview

The form in the early part of the campaign has well and truly deserted Chicago Fire, who have slipped to fourth in the Eastern conference – behind Columbus Crew. The threat of being overtaken by New York Red Bulls – and even Atlanta United – is now quite serious for Chicago Fire, who have managed 10 out of their 12 victories this season at the Toyota Park. Nemanja Nikolic may be the top scorer at Chicago Fire so far with 16 league goals, but David Accam has been fast catching him up.

Chicago Fire Team News

Dax McCarty is away on international duty. Chicago Fire will be without Jorge Bava (elbow), Diogo Meira (thigh), Christian Dean (foot), John Goossens (ankle), Daniel Johnson (ligament), and Brandon Vincent (thigh) due to injury.
