The Chicago Fire need a win after losing four of their last six matches. The Chicago Fire have pitched four shutouts and allowed two or more goals in 10 of their matches. Sean Johnson has come away with 31 saves and has allowed four goals in his last three starts. Offensively, the Chicago Fire have scored 20 goals in 19 matches and have two goals in their last three matches. David Accam leads Chicago with five goals, Harry Shipp has five assists and Kennedy Igboananike has 32 shot attempts. The Chicago Fire are 2-3-0 on their home field in their last five MLS matches.
New England beat Chicago in a matchup earlier this season, 2-0. New England has won the last two meetings, but the Fire are 2-2-1 in the last five matches overall. The last four matchups have not produced more than two goals.
Both of these squads are in lousy form, and I wouldn’t be surprised by the outcome on either side. However, both have continued to struggle on the offensive end and the last four matches between them haven’t produced many goals. Give me the under.
