Thursday Major League Soccer action from SeatGeek Stadium, as Chicago take on Revs.

Leaders Revs are currently 10·places higher than their opponents Chicago, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and eleventh positions respectively.

Chicago Fire’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 20 points this season

A loss to Montréal away, and then D.C. United at away is not good enough to retain a credible run of form in the Major League Soccer. Chicago will see this as an opportunity to get their season back on track.

Suffering five losses in six meetings is a terrible run of form for any club, Raphael Wicky’s Chicago will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. With 20 points, they are established in eleventh in the League.

When Chicago host Revs, they will do so on the back of five wins and four darts on their own ground.

Victory for Chicago Fire would take their points tally to 23 so far this season.

New England Revolution go into this fixture, keen to defend their lead in the Major League Soccer

Following a 1-1 draw against Columbus Crew, Revs will be hoping for more.

League leaders Revs keep finding ways to win, having secured 14 victories in their last 20 matches is astonishing this season. With 49 points, they currently sit top of the League.

Revs’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Chicago. In the 13 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won seven fixtures, drawn three meetings, and lost three matches.

As League leaders every game is crucial, so a victory would ensure that New England Revolution stay top, whilst maintaining pressure on their rivals.
