Basement club Chicago Fire will host Toronto at Soldier Field for their Eastern Conference matchup on Thursday as they try to avoid suffering a third straight MLS loss.
The home club has so far this season won three of its five league home games, while the visitors are one of three MLS teams that have yet to win away from home, drawing three and losing five of their eight away games.
Chicago lost 3-2 to Columbus Crew last weekend at home after blowing a two-goal lead. This was the team’s tenth MLS loss of the year.
The visitors led by two goals at halftime thanks to goals from Rafael Czichos and Chris Mueller, but Derrick Etienne scored twice in the second half and Cucho Hernandez scored the game-winning goal to give the visitors the victory.
Ezra Hendrickson’s team has only 17 points after 19 games and is currently nine points out of the playoff spots.
Chicago has kept seven clean sheets so far this season, which is only surpassed by New York City FC and Philadelphia Union. This is a more encouraging development, as they have earned 13 of their 17 points without conceding a goal. It might be difficult to stop Toronto on Thursday, though, since the Fire have lost each of their last 18 competitive games against them.
Toronto’s winless streak now stands at three games after last weekend’s 2-2 draw at home against the San Jose Earthquakes, which came after back-to-back losses to the Columbus Crew and Seattle Sounders.
Deandre Kerr and Jonathan Osorio’s goals gave the Reds a 2-1 lead going into second-half stoppage time, but Jack Skahan’s goal in the 92nd minute forced a draw between the two teams. Goals were given up in each of Bob Bradley’s team’s 19 games, and at least two goals were let up in 12 of those contests. They are still the only MLS team without a single clean sheet this year as a result.
Toronto is currently ranked 12th in the Eastern Conference, seven points behind Cincinnati, who are currently ranked seventh and hold the final playoff position, and two points ahead of their opponents on Thursday, Chicago.
The Reds have a good record versus Chicago; in their last 14 encounters, they have gone undefeated, winning 11 games and drawing three.
Goals are anticipated on Thursday since in 16 of the past 18 meetings between these two teams, goals have been scored.
Although Toronto is giving up goals like it’s going out of style so far this season, we believe that they have the firepower in attack to outscore their opponents and secure all three points. Toronto has a far better record than Chicago.
