This Thursday sees Chicago go head to head with Cin at SeatGeek Stadium – Kick-off 3:00am GMT.

Both Chicago and Cin are on equal points going into this game, sitting in thirteenth and fourteenth positions in the League, with Chicago ahead on goal difference.

Chicago Fire face their opponents, equal on points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Whilst Chicago need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for Chicago after losing against Columbus Crew and Montréal would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Chicago need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded six losses in their last seven games. They currently stand thirteenth in the League, with four points having won one game, drawn one game, and lost six fixtures.

When Chicago host Cin, they will do so on the back of one victory and one draws on their own ground.

Chicago Fire will have 7 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Cincinnati face his opponents with equal points, it will likely be a thrilling encounter

A loss to Colorado Rapids home, and then New England Revolution at home is not good enough to retain a credible run of form in the Major League Soccer. Cin will see this as an opportunity to get their season back on track.

Cin need to get out of the losing habit, with five recorded in the last six games. With four points, they currently sit fourteenth in the League having won one game, drawn one game, and lost five meetings.

Cin have won one game, drawn one game, and lost two matches of their four League matches away from home this season.

A victory for Cincinnati would put them on 7 points.

Further, Chicago have been unable to beat Cin in their last one game with Cin at SeatGeek Stadium. Their most recent encounter in this competition was September 2020 and the score line ended up with a 0-0 draw.
