New York Red Bulls vs Chicago Fire FC – On Wednesday evening, the Chicago Fire will travel to Harrison to face the New York Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena, where the league’s worst offense will face the East’s joint-best defense.
The New York Red Bulls have a fantastic chance to win their first game at home in the current MLS season. As strange as it may sound, the club managed by Austrian coach Gerhard Struber is yet to win a game at home this season.
The New York Red Bulls are on a roll right now, having gone seven games without losing in all competitions. With ten men on the pitch on Saturday evening, they showed courage and character to come from behind and earn a 1-1 draw away against another in-form team,
Philadelphia Union. In their last five games across all competitions, the New York Red Bulls have only conceded three goals. Last week, they thrashed DC United 0-3 on the road in the US Open Cup’s last 32 rounds.
As a result, we must see the hosts as huge favorites against the Chicago Fire, who haven’t been pulling down any trees recently. The visitors come to Harrison on a five-game losing streak in all competitions. The run includes a devastating US Open Cup loss against Union Omaha in the final 64 round.
