Chicago Fire to bounce back with win over Real Salt Lake

Chicago Fire find themselves fourth from bottom in the Eastern Conference prior to this Saturday evening’s date with Real Salt Lake at their SeatGeek Stadium, having had to endure a four-match sequence without a win in the MLS.

A 1-1 draw with New York City and a 3-3 draw with DC United have been in between defeats away from home at San Jose Earthquakes 4-1 and a 2-0 loss at Atlanta United, so Saturday night’s hosts, Chicago Fire, will be keen to bounce back with a win in this encounter.

Chicago Fire do possess a pretty solid home record though as they’ve suffered just 1 defeat from their first 8 home matches of the season, that being a 4-2 loss to Seattle Sounders earlier in the piece back in mid-March.

The hosts have gained victories over New York Red Bulls, Colorado Rapids, New England Revolution and Minnesota United to date while midfielder Katai (3 goals) along with forwards Sapong (6 goals) and Nikolic (5 goals) look the most likely to notch for Chicago Fire.

Real Salt Lake sit in 7th spot on the Western Conference ladder but they come into this Saturday night clash in Chicago having suffered back-to-back defeats to Montreal Impact and New York Red Bulls, both of which were away from home.

The visitors face another tricky road trip to Chicago this weekend where they’ll be looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot, but most of Real Salt Lake’s success this season has been achieved on home turf at their Rio Tinto Stadium.

From Real Salt Lake’s 6 wins in the MLS this season, 4 have been achieved in Utah, while away from home, the visitors have tended to struggle, losing 3 of their last 4 matches on their travels in recent times.

Losing at LA Galaxy, Montreal Impact and New York Red Bulls is not ideal preparation for another road trip to Chicago this weekend, and neither is gaining 1 clean sheet from their last 14 away matches a good sign either.

In the last meeting on home turf at their SeatGeek Stadium, Chicago Fire recorded a 2-0 win over Real Salt Lake, and we could see a similar result unfold here this Saturday evening.
