Sunday’s clash at Gillette Stadium- sees twelfth placed Chicago, travel to first-placed Revs in the Major League Soccer.

New England Revolution will try to defend their lead in the Major League Soccer

Revs will be hoping to increase their row, after victories over both Montréal and Orlando City.

League leaders Revs keep finding ways to win, having secured 12 victories in their last 15 matches is astonishing this season. They currently sit in first place, top of the League, having accrued 62 points points so far this season having won 19 meetings, drawn five fixtures, and lost four games.

Given Chicago’s form at this time, it will be a significant challenge for them to overturn Revs’s home record. They have won 11 matches, drawn two meetings, and lost one game so far this season. The prospects of a positive result for Chicago are concerning for the visitors.

A victory for New England Revolution would be a huge boost, giving them the chance to stay on top of the table and put additional pressure to their closest rivals.

Chicago Fire have 27 points to their name, going into this tie

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what Chicago need now, after their loss to Toronto FC at BMO Field.

Chicago need to get out of the losing habit, with six recorded in the last nine matches. Their position is twelfth in the League, and they have 27 points having won seven meetings, drawn six meetings, and lost 15 fixtures.

It must be a worrying prospect for Chicago to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured one win and one draw to the home team.

Victory for Chicago Fire would take their points tally to 30 so far this season.

New England Revolution v Chicago Fire – Head-to-Heads.

When these two sides meet, a draw is never usually the expected outcome. In the past 81 matches, Chicago have won 34 victories and Revs 31 victories. September 2021 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and Chicago Fire took all three points winning 2-3. As we can see both teams have scored in their last match and it’s rated at 64.1% that they both get on the scoresheet once more at Gillette Stadium.

Its a 70.42 percent win probability for Revs in this game.
