Soldier Field Soldier Field, Chicago, USA
Over 3 Goals (-109)
Chicago failed to keep the momentum after their recent mini-run and are now win-less in their last two. They will remain at home for their next assignment, where they will play host to Toronto on Saturday. Toronto are also coming off a couple of mediocre results, as they failed to win in their first two matches at the BMO Field.
Chicago Fire (3-8-3) will surely be feeling frustrated about their 2-2 home draw against DC United. They were leading by 2 goals till the 82nd minute but conceded twice in a 5-minute span and eventually split the points. They have now won just 2 of their last 8 (2-4-2), keeping just a single clean sheet in that span. Chicago are now sitting at the 12th spot of the Eastern Conference with 12 points scoring 16 and conceding 25 goals in the process. They have been slightly better at home (3-3-3), scoring 14 and conceding 12 goals, scoring 2 or more in each of their last 4 there.
Toronto (2-8-4) are coming off their second consecutive 1-1 draw at home, this time against the Red Bulls. Their opponents took the lead at the start of the second half but Toronto pulled even at the 62nd minute for the final 1-1. They have won just 1 of their last 10 matches (1-6-3), failing to keep a single clean sheet in that span. Toronto are still sitting at the 13th spot of the Eastern Conference with 10 points, scoring 18 and conceding 31 goals so far, which is still the worst defense. Moreover, they have a 1-6-1 record on the road, scoring 10 and conceding 22 goals in the process.
Free Soccer Pick:
The two teams haven’t met since 2019, where they exchanged a couple of 2-2 draws. Toronto have been great in this match-up in recent years, going unbeaten in their last 11 against Chicago (7-0-4). That means they are unbeaten in their last 4 trips to this venue (3-0-1) and have only lost once here since 2013 (3-1-3). Given the offensive prowess of the two teams, I am taking the Over 3 Goals here.
