The Chicago Fire are one of the few teams to not have registered a win in 2021 yet. And they now get a tough match-up on Saturday, as they will play host to Inter Miami. Inter Miami looked empty with the temporary absences of the Higuain brothers, but they are both back and ready to roll.
Inter Miami almost suffered an upset in their away match against FC Cincinnati, but eventually got the three points. They took a two-goal lead in the first half but their opponents somehow clawed their way back into the match. However, Gonzalo Higuain scored his second goal of the night at the 85th minute for the final 3-2 win.
That was just their second win in the season, but they missed the Higuain brothers in a couple of matches and that really weakened them. One key stat for Inter Miami is the fact that they have only kept 1 clean sheet in 6 matches so far, conceding twice in three occasions already.
Inter Miami are sitting at the 7th spot of the Eastern Conference with 8 points, scoring 8 goals and conceding 9 in the process. Oddly enough, they have been better on the road (2 wins, 1 draw) than they have been at home (2 losses, 1 draw).
Chicago are coming into this match after a slim 1-0 loss on the road against DC United. There is something wrong with their offense, but the rest of the squad still looks numb after 5 matches. They did look solid in the 2-2 draw against New England in the premiere, but have struggled ever since.
Chicago have not kept a single clean sheet so far, and they’ve failed to score in each of their last 3 matches. In their 2 matches at home so far, Chicago conceded exactly 2 goals in each match. They are sitting at the 13th spot of the Eastern Conference with 1 point, scoring 3 goals and conceding 10 so far.
Last season they were quite unimpressive, especially towards the end of the regular season. They went win-less in their last 6 matches and eventually dropped out of the playoff spots, finishing at the 11th spot with 23 points (5 wins, 10 losses, 8 draws).
Free Inter Miami vs Chicago Fire MLS Prediction: Play the over.
There’s clearly something wrong with Chicago Fire, and my estimate is that it’s a temporary mental thing. But until they snap out of it (if they ever), I am not trusting them.
Inter Miami have looked great when fully healthy and could potentially challenge Chicago for all three points here. However, I am taking the Over 2.75 Goals here.
4* Free MLS Betting Pick:
Chicago’s offense is not as bad as their recent results suggest, and they are due for an outburst. Inter Miami have a lot of quality up front but their back-line as always a liability.
