Toronto FC vs Chicago Fire Prediction & Betting tips
In the American Major League Soccer this weekend at the BMO Field Stadium the duel between Toronto FC and Chicago Fire takes place. Both teams are to be found in the Eastern Conference. Last season, these teams separated 22 points in the final round. While Chicago landed on the last table, the team from Canada was able to rank third.
Toronto FC :
Toronto currently has seven points on the ninth place – the table situation is still not very promising at this time of the season, because with a victory they could already improve to fourth place. In the previous six league games Toronto lost only one defeat at Columbus Crew (1: 2), but they only booked a victory in Vancouver (2-0), otherwise there were four points against Salt Lake (0-0), Philadelphia Union (2-2), Kansas City (0-0), and Atlanta United (2-2). Last season, their Italian striker Sebastian Giovinco scored 22 goals in 37 competitive games – he is still a long way off, as he only scored one goal. Their most striking striker is Jozy Altidore with three goals, followed by Justin Morrow with two goals. All in all, Toronto is one of the better teams in the league, as with Altidore, Giovinco and Michael Bradley, they have three players in their team who have a lot of quality and experience. Coach Greg Vanney will be without goalkeeper Clint Irwin, Drew Moor and Ashtone Morgan in the third home game of the season.
Chicago Fire :
The guests from Chicago have won two games in a row for the first time in two years and are causing a stir in the MLS. Last season, they went down in a sound and sang, but this season, they can count on something – new entry Bastian Schweinsteiger has his share. The former German national player already scored two goals in three games and was most recently voted in the eleventh of the matchday. With eleven points from six games, Chicago Fire is now in third place behind the Columbus Crew (13 points) and Orlando City (12 points). So far, however, one does not want to think in Chicago, for it is first of all necessary to consolidate itself in the upper half of the table. In the current series, the team from Veljko Paunovic only lost one defeat in six games. In addition to three home wins against Salt Lake (2-0), Columbus Crew (1: 0) and New England Revolution (3-0), there was also a tie with Columbus Crew and home against Montreal Impact (2-2). In addition to Schweinsteiger, striker Nemanja Nikolics is also a hope-bearer. The 29-year-old already scored four goals in six games.
