Analysis of Chicago Fire

After a bad 2014 season, Chicago Fire is once again not doing well in the championship, since they are in the last position of the Supporters’ Shield. They have been irregular so far and have had a few negative series of results. But in the last 2 rounds they have won 4 of 6 possible points, so they now which to get a series of good results to climb a few places.
One of their problems has been their away matches, since they have only won 3 out of 24 possible points and have suffered an average of 1,88 goals per match, while having scored only 0,88 goals per match. In their stadium do usually do better with averages of 1,33 goals scored and 1 goal suffered per match. In their 9 matches at the Toyota Park, Chicago Fire didn’t suffer any goals in 4 and have won all the matches in which they haven’t suffered any goals. Therefore, in this match against Columbus Crew, which hasn’t had good away results but usually presents good offensive quality, it is important that Chicago presents a strong defence.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Johnson, P. Doody, E. Gehrig, L. Palmer, M. Polster, H. Shipp, C. Ritter, M. Magee, R. Cociş, M. Stephens, K. Igboananike.
Coach: V. Paunovic.

Analysis of Columbus Crew

Columbus Crew has done well so far, but has had a few negative moments. They had a series of 4 matches with no wins and visited Montreal Impact in the last round. They suffered 2 goals early on and were unable to come back. Their home record is almost as bad as Chicago’s, but their problems in away matches are impressive.
Columbus is one of the best offenses in the league, with an average of 2.1 goals scored per match, against only 0,66 goals scored in away matches. In away matches they have scored in 6 of their 9 matches. Their defence hasn’t done well too, with an average of 1,89 goals suffered per match. They have the best scorer of the league, Kei Kamara, and the assist leader, Ethan Finlay, but nevertheless they have been unable to get good away results. They now need their best players to be at a good level to get their first away win.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Clark, C. Barson, M. Parkhurst, T. Wahl, W. Francis, E. Finlay, W. Trapp, T. Tchani, Justin Meram, F. Higuaín, K. Kamara.
Coach: G. Berhalter.

Betting suggestion:

This will probably be a very balanced match. The away team is one of the best offenses of the league and faces a weak defence, so naturally they have good chances of scoring. But their defence is one of the worst, so they are likely to suffer goals as well. Therefore, the most likely scenario is a match with many goals.
