Chicago Fire vs Seattle Sounders Prediction & Betting tips
In the major American sports leagues, basketball will soon fly through the trap, puck through the ice rinks and baseball through the air. For a few days now, football had started in major league soccer. As part of the MLS is back tournament, a winner will be determined from the original 26 teams until August 11.
Of the franchises that were actually planned, two had to withdraw due to positive tests in the area, which is why there were shifts in the grouping. For example, Bastian Schweinsteiger’s ex-club, Chicago Fire, has been moved to Group B. There will be a game of Chicago Fire vs. Tuesday afternoon. Seattle Sounders. According to the odds of the best bookmakers, a balanced match can be assumed.
This assessment of the betting providers is surprising in that Seattle is the reigning US champion. The team of coach Brian Schmetzer could basically be held together and is therefore aiming for another deep run in the tournament. A few days ago, the start at 0-0 against St. Jose was not as desired.
This may also be the main reason why a corresponding tip on guest success is so highly quoted between the Chicago Fire and the Seattle Sounders. In any case, it cannot be due to the special strength of the men from “Windy City”, especially since some top performers were replaced before the start of the season.
The Chicago Fire are still looking for success. Shareholder Joe Mansueto’s franchise has failed to reach the playoffs in seven of the past nine seasons. Last year the team with Bastian Schweinsteiger, as eighth of the Eastern Conference, already failed in the regular season.
Since Fire also had to accept a large personal bloodletting and with the former Hamburg Bundesliga professional Raphael Wicky a new head coach was also installed at the end of 2019, it is currently not clear where the red and whites really stand. Of course, this makes it all the more difficult to place a suitable tip between Chicago Fire and Seattle Sounders.
The only clue is the two completed and now canceled matches from before the forced break. At that time, the Illinois men in transition only got one point from the games against the Seattle Sounders (1: 2) and New England Revolution (1: 1).
We don’t quite understand where the bookmakers take the confidence that after such a long break in the first competitive game since March, Chicago will suddenly harmonize in football. It may be due to the promising newcomers like Robert Beric, Gaston Gimenez or Ignacio Aliseda, who all have to get used to physical American football.
The Seattle Sounders did it again! Similar to 2016, the franchise from the US state of Washington was able to grab the title in Major League Soccer in 2019. Set at number two, the Sounders reached the grand final in the conference games against Real Salt Lake and Los Angeles FC, which was ultimately won 3-1 against Toronto.
If we look at the betting odds for the overall winner of the MLS is back tournament before the Chicago Fire game against the Seattle Sounders, the Schmetzer-Elf, together with Los Angeles FC and Atlanta United, is once again one of the favorites for the trophy.
In this respect, it is quite surprising that the prediction of the away win between the Chicago Fire and the Seattle Sounders is considered to be about as likely as the success of the underdog we have identified. Possibly this has to do with the first appearance of the master, who had to be satisfied with a 0: 0 against the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday and revealed a lot of sand in the gearbox.
Nevertheless, we attest the sounders enough quality and above all experience to strike back with a threesome on Wednesday afternoon. The fact that Seattle was able to gather some practice after the long break is, in our opinion, a clear advantage over the Fire, which so far only operated at the training ground.
