Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on Soldier Field when Chicago Fire and Philadelphia Union face each other in the Major League Soccer on Saturday evening. Chicago Fire have been anything but impressive at the start of the season, with the team collecting one point in total from the first three league fixtures of the season. All Herbers, Ivanov, and Kronholm have been struggling with injuries at the start of the season, and the trio is unlikely to feature against Philadelphia.
The U’s, on the other hand, are eyeing their first win of the season as well. Considering that both sides are likely to go for a victory in Saturday’s clash, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Venezuela midfielder is sidelined through suspension for the visiting team as he was sent off in the 2-0 loss to New York City.
