Philadelphia Union vs Chicago Fire Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Philadelphia are unbeaten in three games coming into this match. Chicago Fire may have picked up two wins in the last four games, but Veljko Paunovic has a huge injury list. Philadelphia also have home advantage, which saw them get back-to-back wins over Chicago Fire at the Talen Energy Stadium. Chicago required two stunning strikes in order to overcome Orlando in the recent match and it may be difficult for the visitors to repeat the same in this midweek match. Philadelphia have won back-to-back home games and I would back a third consecutive home victory for the Union.

Both teams have sufficient attacking power in their line-ups to expect goals at both ends. In fact, the last meeting between the two clubs to produce less than 2.5 goals was back in April 2016. There is unlikely to be a change in trend. A decent price is also available to back my pick of over 2.5 goals in the match.
