Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United Betting Tips & Picks

How will life after coach Ezra Hendrickson be on Chicago Fire and will Atlanta United earn another valuable win at Solider Field on the 21st of May? Find out the answer to this question in our Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United predictions!

Atlanta United to Win

As we stated earlier, coach Ezra Hendrickson and Chicago Fire parted ways. The manager didn’t live up to the expectations and was dismissed by the team’s board last week. Now, it’s up to caretaker manager Frank Klopas to fill in Hendrickson’s shoes and see what the former manager had to deal with.

We highly doubt that there will be a spike in momentum due to the new manager and our Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United predictions should be safe as long as the visitors don’t make any unexpected errors.

Coach Gonzalo Pineda has a tremendous 2-1-0 record versus Chicago Fire and we’re sure he’d like to keep it that way. A quick review of the Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United head-to-head record also tells us that the visitors have a small but valuable lead with five victories, one draw, and four losses.

BTTS – No

Our second Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United prediction is also targeting a sturdy display from the visitors. Atlanta United’s backline has been lacking consistency recently and it’s time for Gonzalo Pineda’s players to earn a long-awaited clean sheet.

What better opportunity to do so than a match versus lackluster Chicago Fire? With coach Ezra Hendrickson gone and no one to take the blame, it’ll be interesting to see how Chicago Fire will cope with the pressure versus Atlanta United. Not one of the last three matches between the two teams at Soldier Field ended with both teams bagging goals so this one shouldn’t either.

Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United Lineups & Team News

Chicago Fire

Coach Ezra Hendrickson was expectedly sacked last week after the horrible run of games Chicago Fire had but it’s not right to put all the blame on the manager. The players’ conduct must swiftly change if the home team wants to prove our Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United predictions wrong this week.

Predicted lineup – Brady (GK), Navarro, Pineda, Czichos, Souquet, Torres, Navarro, Gutierrez, Shaqiri, Haile-Selassie & Kamara

Atlanta United

Atlanta United’s games in the 2023 MLS campaign have been one of the most pleasant to watch. How could they not be when coach Gonzalo Pineda’s boys simultaneously scored and conceded 21 goals this season? We hope to see more of the same from the club on the 21st of May.

Predicted lineup – Westerbg (GK), Gutman, Purata, Robinson, Lennon, Sejdic, Ibarra, Etienne, Almada, Araujo & Giakoumakis

Player to Watch: Thiago Almada

Not featuring Thiago Almada in our Chicago Fire vs Atlanta United predictions would’ve been a mistake we couldn’t live with. The 22-year-old has been in remarkable shape this season and it’s no wonder why he’s the top assists provider in MLS with five to his name already.

However, he’s no one-trick pony as he’s also the best finisher at coach Gonzalo Pineda’s disposal. Yes, Almada bagged five for Atlanta United already and he’s surely taking MLS by storm this season!

If the Argentine’s momentum doesn’t drop, we might see him featured in the Argentine team for the World Cup in a couple of years where he’ll have the chance of teaming up with childhood hero Lionel Messi.
