New York City FC vs Chicago Fire Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

New York City failed to win a second consecutive game, as they could only muster a 2-2 draw with Toronto FC. Ashtone Morgan came up with the opening goal after just 11 minutes, but David Villa helped equalise just before the break. New York took the lead through Maximiliano Moralez in the second half, but a late penalty from Victor Vasquez prevented a win for New York. Chicago Fire managed a 2-2 draw with Portland Timbers just before the international break. Fanendo Adi’s early penalty was cancelled out by Arturo Alvarez, while a second-half goal from Brandon Vincent was cancelled out by Portland’s Sebastian Blanco. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Chicago Fire are winless in the last four meetings with New York City, but the current Chicago team is a completely different outfit. Confidence is buzzing through their veins, but the team has only managed two wins in the last five away matches. The remaining three have finished as stalemates. New York City have also managed just three wins in the last five home games. While they are unbeaten in the last five at home, the opposition have drawn two of these matches. I would back a draw. New York City have not kept a clean sheet in the last nine home matches, while Chicago have failed to score only once in the last seven away games. I would back both teams to score.

Draw – 12/5

Both teams to score – 1/2

New York City FC Preview

New York City were on song only a few weeks ago, but the team are now waiting for the first win of July. The club are winless in the last two matches, and Patrick Vieira will be disappointed with losing points late in the game. New York City have conceded late goals in the last two matches, while they have also allowed the opposition to score five goals in these two games. On a positive note, New York City remain unbeaten at home, but there have been no clean sheets in the last nine home games for New York City. David Villa is the club’s top scorer with 13 league goals.

New York City FC Team News

Rodney Wallace (adductor), Miguel Camargo (wound), and Khiry Shelton (muscle) are the players unavailable for New York City manager Patrick Vieira.

Chicago Fire Preview

Chicago Fire appeared capable of running away with the title, but the opposition have been able to hit the brakes at a crucial time. The failure to win the match against Portland Timbers saw Chicago Fire’s four-game winning run coming to a halt. The club, though, remain unbeaten in the last 11 league matches. Chicago’s last defeat was against New York Red Bulls towards the end of April. A huge factor behind this incredible run of form has been Nemanja Nikolic’s goals. The forward is the top scorer in the division with 16 league goals.

Chicago Fire Team News

John Goossens (ankle) and Jorge Bava (elbow) are the players unavailable for Chicago Fire due to injury, while Dax McCarty is called up for the national team action.
