Philadelphia Union odds: -164 – 61.1%

Draw odds: +305 – 23.9%

Chicago Fire odds: +400 – 15.0%

According to the bookmakers’ odds, we have Philadelphiai Union down as the expected winners, with a staggering 61.1% chance of securing the three points at home against lackluster Chicago Fire. The visitors, on the other hand, still have a 15.0% win probability, so coach Jim Curtin better not underestimate his rival. Under 2.5 Goals is also a popular pick, as it stands an exactly 60.0% success chance.

Philadelphia Union vs Chicago Fire Lineups & Team News

Philadelphia Union

As we mentioned earlier in our Philadelphia Union vs Chicago Fire prediction, coach Curtin’s boys got pipped 0-2 by a superior Flamenco side a couple of weeks ago. However, this is not a result to feel ashamed of, as Flamenco is one of the superior Brazilian teams.

Predicted lineup – Blake (GK), Harriel, Elliott, Lowe, Mbaizo, Bedoya, Martinez, McGlynn, Gazdag, Uhre & Carranza

Chicago Fire

Despite losing 1-3 to Los Angeles in a pre-season friendly, Chicago Fire didn’t do that poorly overall. They managed to thrash Minnesota United 0-4 in their last match. Before that, coach Klopas’ players defeated Austin 0-1 and shared the spoils with New York Red Bulls via an attractive 2-2 at home.

Predicted lineup – Brady (GK), Aceves, Czichos, Teran, Dean, Doumbia, Navarro, Gutierrez, Shaqiri, Herbers & Koutsias

Player to Watch: Daniel Gazdag

Seeing as Daniel Gazdag was among the top goalscorers in Major League Soccer in the past two seasons, we believe that giving him a shoutout in our Philadelphia Union vs Chicago Fire prediction is the right call. Daniel Gazdag came in second place in the goalscorers’ chase in 2022, and he ended up in 6th last year. We believe he is the one player coach Curtin can’t go without, so we expect him to be among the starters for his manager.
