Chicago Fire and Inter Miami remain within range of a playoff spot finish and that should be the goal of both teams in the remaining games of the season. Chicago Fire are 11th on the Eastern Conference table with 37 points, while Inter Miami CF are 13th with 33 points. A good result for either side would be of a great advantage to the team for qualification for the playoffs. But with the current state of both teams at the moment, which team will take that chance?Grab Your Signup Bonus
Chicago Fire finally got back to winning ways against New York Red Bulls in their last game. The game was tight at both ends and Georgios Koutsias' goal was the only thing that separated both sides. Hassan Ndam got a red card in the 62nd minute, leaving The Red Bulls to play the game with only 10 men.
While the last win was a sigh of relief, Chicago Fire will be looking for another win to help them push for a Playoff spot. Their recent results have been very poor as they have managed to win only 1 of their last 7 league games.
Chicago Fire had already beaten Inter Miami 3-2 in the first fixture back in March. Chris Mueller, Carlos Teran and Kei Kamara were the goalscorers in that match.
- First to concede in 5/7 games.
- Less than 10.5 corners in 6/6 games.
Inter Miami CF
Inter Miami FC have struggled recently since the injury of star player Lionel Messi. And with his return still unknown, the team will have to find another means of motivation to get the desired results.
Inter Miami remain just 3 points away from the playoff zone and they need to get back to winning ways if they hope to finish in that position. They had back-to-back draws in their last 2 games against Orlando City SC and New York City, with both games ending in a 1-1 draw.
Inter Miami face a tough test from Chicago Fire in this game because Chicago Fire are also in the battle for Playoffs and they need the win to get into that spot. Inter Miami have lost the last 2 games against Chicago Fire. The most recent was the 3-2 defeat on their home ground. Franco Negri and Nicolas Stefanelli scored Inter's 2 goals but that wasn't enough as they conceded 3 goals.
