Football Form Labs think we could be in for a tight affair on Sunday night.
Chicago Fire v Orlando City - Sunday 21.00, Sky Sports 3
Chicago are struggling at the bottom of the Eastern Conference having won only four of their 21 matches this season, while Orlando aren’t faring much better as they’re just eight points better off having played an extra game.
However, Fire’s problems have largely been on the road as they’ve lost their last nine away games, but at Toyota Park they’re unbeaten in six, with three 1-0 wins in their last five. Orlando, meanwhile, have failed to win on the road since they beat City in their opening away game, losing five of their last nine. They have however managed draws in their last three trips to fellow bottom-half sides Columbus, Vancouver and New England.
Indeed, these two drew 1-1 when they met at Orlando earlier in the season and we think another stalemate could be in the offing here. Chicago certainly look on the short side at around 2.1 for a team that hasn’t won much all season and we wouldn’t put anyone off backing Orlando or Draw on the Double Chance, but we’re sticking with the stalemate at a tempting 3.4.
