This is the first match ever between Charlotte FC and the Chicago Fire. Charlotte plays extremely well at home and has taken points in four of the last five matches played at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. Look for a low-scoring contest as the Chicago Fire have had clean sheets in three of the last four matches played. The Fire are unbeaten in each of their last four and will remain that way with a draw on the road Saturday. Final Score Prediction, Draw 1-1.
