Player to watch: Hugo Cuypers

As we mentioned earlier in our professional Chicago Fire vs New York City predictions, Xherdan Shaqiri will not take part in this event. This leaves Cuypers as the key man for coach Klopas. The striker is the leading finisher for his team in 2024, with nine goals since the start of the season.

Second player to watch: Hannes Wolf

Left winger Wolf can be problematic for Chicago Fire. He scored four goals and supplied his New York City teammates with five assists since the start of the campaign.
