Next Thursday at 3:00am GMT, on matchday 36 of the Major League Soccer, we will see Chicago play NYC at SeatGeek Stadium.

NYC (third), travel to SeatGeek Stadium with high expectations, as they take on twelfth placed Chicago.

Chicago Fire have so far accrued 23 points in this season of the Major League Soccer

If Chicago’s season is to maintain on track, they must put their recent poor form to an end in this game. In their last two outings, they lost 2-0 at Montréal and 3-0 at D.C. United.

League success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so five losses in six fixtures would not make this a successful season for Chicago. With 23 points, they currently sit twelfth in the League having won six fixtures, drawn five fixtures, and lost 14 games.

Playing at home, Chicago have won five meetings, drawn four matches, and lost four matches.

Chicago Fire will have 26 points if they manage to secure a victory.

New York’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 39 points this season

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of New York Red Bulls for Ronny Deila’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

They currently sit in third place, with a total of 39 points having won 11 meetings, drawn six matches, and lost nine games.

NYC now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won three games, drawn four fixtures, and lost six meetings matches on the road.

New York will have 42 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
