Sporting Kansas City vs Chicago Fire Lineups & Team News

Sporting Kansas City

After a poor start to the season, Sporting KC quickly picked up the pace and now, we see the team ranking 10th with five victories, five draws, and nine losses. If our Sporting Kansas City vs Chicago Fire predictions succeed, we might just see coach Vermes’ players reach the 8th spot.

Predicted lineup – McIntosh (GK), Leibold, Voloder, Rosero, Davis, Thommy, Walter, Radoja, Salloi, Russell & Pulido

Chicago Fire

With barely a two-point gap separating Chicago Fire and Inter Miami, coach Klopas’ boys are in danger of sinking to the bottom if Inter Miami somehow manage to defeat Philadelphia Union. Coach Ezra Hendrickson was sacked so he can no longer take the blame for Chicago Fire’s misfortune so it would be interesting to see how the team will cope with the pressure at Children’s Mercy Park.

Predicted lineup – Richey (GK), Souquet, Czichos, Pineda, M. Navarro, Gimenez, F. Navarro, Haile-Selassie, Shaqiri & Kamara

Player to Watch: Xherdan Shaqiri

The 31-year-old Swiss is the player to watch in our Sporting Kansas City vs Chicago Fire prediction this week for numerous reasons. First of all, he’s one of the most recognizable names in MLS. Shaqiri is a former Liverpool star and he had quite a few good moments in the English Premier League.

Second of all, with Victor Bezerra, Chris Mueller, Chris Brady, Carlos Tevan, and Miguel Navarro out injured, all eyes will be on Xherdan Shaqiri with anticipation that he might make a difference for the visitors on matchday 21.
