Our football match prediction:
Chicago Fire were producing splendid showings in MLS at the start of the season, but they do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment. Veljko Paunovic’s men are on a three-game losing run in the league ahead of Sunday’s football match against Minnesota United and, no doubt, the Serbian tactician, who won the U-20 World Cup with the Eagles, is under big pressure. Chicago are eager to put an end to the negative trend in the Major League Soccer and we believe that the time has come for Veljko Paunovic’s troops to get back on course. Out-of-form Minnesota United arrive to town and the Loons are unlikely to spoil Chicago’s party at Toyota Park. The newcomers have been struggling at the back of late and you should know that they conceded six goals in back-to-back defeats to Seattle Sounders (0-4, 1-2).
Highlighted Player (Bastian Schweinsteiger):
After making a name for himself at Bayern Munich, Bastian Schweinsteiger moved to Manchester United in 2015 for a fee of €9 million. The German midfielder won eight Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich, but he has yet to win the Premier League trophy with Manchester United. However, winning the 2014 World Cup trophy with Germany is considered Bastian’s biggest success and it is well known that he won the bronze medal with die Manschaft at the 2006 and the 2010 World Cup finals. Schweinsteiger was born on 1 August, 1984 and he scored 45 goals in 342 appearances for Bayern Munich. The German international, though, failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign with Manchester United as he scored no more than one goal in 18 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit. Bastian Schweinsteiger netted once for Germany at the Euro 2016 finals and later in July he married Serbian tennis player Ana Ivanovic.
Highlighted Team (Minnesota United):
Based in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, Minnesota United are a professional soccer club that will compete in the Western Conference in the Major League Soccer from 2017. The Loons will make their MLS debut against Portland Timbers on March 4, 2017 and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the forthcoming season. Minnesota United are the sixth team to join MLS from a lower division and they will welcome their rivals at TCF Bank Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 52.525 and it was opened in September, 2009. Bill McGuire is the club’s owner and he is on a quest to turn Minnesota United into a top-table side in the Western Conference. Adrian Heath will be in charge of the club in the 2017 season and it has to be noted that the English tactician used to train the likes of Manchester City, Everton, Aston Villa and Espanyol in the past. You should know that the club was founded on March 25, 2015.
