Draw odds: +240 – 25%

Chicago Fire odds: +250 – 24.5%

Priced at +102, a Minnesota United win has a 50.5% likelihood, which means the team is considered by the bookies as the expected winner ahead of this Leagues Cup showdown. Chicago Fire have a measly 24.5% win probability at +250, but we believe the visitors aren’t to be ignored. That’s why our Over 2.5 Goals betting tip for Minnesota United vs Chicago Fire is so highly recommended – it has a massive 48.78% chance of becoming a success.

Minnesota United vs Chicago Fire Lineups & Team News

Minnesota United

Former Norwich star Teemu Pukki joined Minnesota United’s ranks a few weeks ago and already made his debut with the Minnesota jersey in the game against Puebla. Sure, he didn’t make much of an impact, but his team still thrashed Puebla 4-0.

Predicted lineup – Clair (GK), Dibassy, Valentin, Taylor, Kallman, Trapp, Ariaga, Dotson, Reynoso, Hlongwane & Pukki

Chicago Fire

The below-mentioned starters were the ones who pipped Toronto 1-0 at Soldier Field on the 16th of July. Perhaps the Canucks were a bit better with their 52.0% possession, but the truth is that coach Klopas’ boys had five times as many shots on target as their rivals. With that piece of information in mind, we have hopes that our Minnesota United vs Chicago Fire predictions will succeed.

Predicted lineup – Brady (GK), Dean, Pineda, Czichos, Navarro, Herbers, Gimenez, Haile-Selassie, Shaqiri, Gutierrez & Koutsias

Player to Watch: Xherdan Shaqiri

At the age of 31, Xherdan Shaqiri is getting closer and closer to the end of his professional career. However, the Swiss is currently enjoying the best MLS days he’s had so far and it’d be unwise to rule out the possibility of an away team win on Friday.

Our Minnesota United vs Chicago Fire predictions rely heavily on Shaqiri to deliver a solid display against coach Adrian Heath’s boys. So far this season, 31-year-old Shaqiri scored three and assisted thrice. We believe there’s plenty more where that came from and a solid display in the Leagues Cup tournament is exactly what coach Frank Klopas wants from his star player.
