Puebla vs Chicago Fire Lineups & Team News

Puebla

The Group E game between Puebla and Minnesota United was among the more puzzling Leagues Cup ones this season. Coach Eduardo Arce’s boys had a solid 63.0% possession and 14 shots at target. You’d expect them to at least chip a point away from their rivals. However, Adrian Heath’s side took home a vital 0-4 win, which only proves our Puebla vs Chicago Fire predictions have merit.

Predicted lineup – Rodriguez (GK), De Buen, Orona. G. Silva, Gustavo, Aguilar, Juarez, Angulo, Mancuello, Martinez & Roblez

Chicago Fire

Unlike their Mexican rivals, coach Klopas’ troops took advantage of the few good chances they had against Minnesota United, as a massive come-from-behind 2-3 victory at Allianz Field was recorded earlier last week. We believe that our Puebla vs Chicago Fire prediction will succeed if the US side doesn’t drastically drop their guard down.

Predicted lineup – Richey (GK), Navarro, Czichos, Teran, Souquet, Herbers, Gimenez, Torres, Gutierrez, Haile-Selassie & Przybylko

Player to Watch: Xherdan Shaqiri

Former Liverpool superstar Xherdan Shaqiri is enjoying some of the best days of his stay at Soldier Field. The Swiss international has been at his lethal best recently, and we expect him to do well on the 1st of August to prove our Puebla vs Chicago Fire predictions right.

Xherdan’s contribution in the win over Minnesota United didn’t go unnoticed. He bagged a 70th-minute penalty for his team, which motivated his partners in crime to pull a remarkable comeback. Surely, Shaqiri would want to top his display from last week, right?
