New England Revolution vs Chicago Fire Prediction

Both sides have seen better days in the league and are heading into this tie in pretty poor form. The chances of the Chicago Fire making the playoffs are slim, but the team will be determined to make a change after three consecutive losses.

New England Revolution still have a shot at making the playoffs, but they must win this and other games of comparable difficulty in order to be considered. They have no history of head-to-head. They’ve won 27 matches each and drawn 14 others.

A draw won’t do either side any favors, so a win is a must. The New England Revolution will want to win this game more than ever and they haven’t lost against the Chicago Fire for quite some time. A wager on them seems like a good bet.

Previous Meetings

Despite sharing a long history, the two sides haven’t wasted one another all year. In late October 2013, the last meeting was held between these two sides. It ended in a draw of 2-2. New England led twice in the second period, but Chicago Fire responded quickly on both occasions. Gustavo Bou and Wilfrid Kaptoum were the New England scorers, while Alvaro Medran (Chicago Fire) did the same.

Chicago Fire were mostly worth their two goals despite only having 43 percent of the possession because of their 10 shots on target, of which five were on target. New England Revolution had only two goals and one on target.

New England Revolution Lose More Points

New England Revolution couldn’t stop their slide following a 2-1 defeat to the LA Galaxy team that was looking out of sorts prior to the match. New England made a disastrous start to the match, conceding twice in the 15 minutes. New England will be well aware that catch-up is never ideal and weren’t able to turn an 82nd minute goal from Carles Gill into a comeback. Even though the game ended in defeat, Gustavo Bou’s return to the match after suffering an injury and Gil scoring a goal were positives.

Bou’s Return Should Be a Big Addition

Gustavo Bou had been out with a leg injury for six week but remained New England Revolution’s top goalscorer along with Adam Buksa, who recently left the club for Ligue 1 side Lens. The team has been lacking their support, but they will feel hopeful going into next season. Bou had scored seven goals from 12 matches before his long break. To make it into the playoffs, they’ll need to have him hit them at an equal rate.

Gil’s Goal Will Be Another Positive

It’s been difficult for Gil, who has to take almost all of the attacking burden in recent weeks, but the goal on the weekend showed that he remains one of the best players in the MLS when he gets a little help. He now has six assists for the season. Bou already has eight assists. He will gladly be responsible for providing the service to Bou If Bou is able to get to grips quickly, then there are no reasons why they shouldn’t share in New England’s qualifying hopes. They now have all of the roster’s strength with Bou’s arrival.

Chicago Fire Loses Another Half-Side Chicago Fire was already up against New York City FC, Philadelphia Union, and it wasn’t going to be easy to play against CF Montreal. After Romell Quioto and Ismael Cone scored two goals in five minutes, the game against CF Montreal was called off. After Kone’s two yellow card dismissals in the first period, Chicago Fire was disappointed not to get anything from this fixture.

Poor Finishing Has Cost the Side

No team has scored fewer goals this season than Chicago Fire with their 28 and their top goalscorer Kacper Przybylko has only scored five goals so far, which gives a pretty clear indication as to what the problems have been for this team.

The underlying numbers suggest that they have underperformed with an expected goals value of 35.2, which isn’t very high either. They don’t appear to be able to solve this problem for next year, but they will need to upgrade for the season.

Xherdan Shaqiri has made a promise

The Champions League winner, who played for European titans such as Liverpool and Bayern Munich, is someone the side should build around in the next seasons. He is an incredibly creative player and his six assists, which is an average assists value of 6.6, are proof. Four goals have also been scored by him. Chicago Fire could be a very competitive team if they can find a central point who is able to take his through balls, crosses and score. They’re not likely to be able to overcome the fragile New England Revolution at this time, which will be buoyed in part by their return of their main goal scorer.

Injuries and Suspensions

Center-back Wyatt Omsberg has been out with a foot surgery since late June and won’t be available for this fixture.
