Nashville SC vs Chicago Fire 7/17/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Two teams in really good shape will face off on Saturday in the MLS when Nashville SC will play host to Chicago. This will be Nashville’s fifth consecutive match at home and they will look to keep their unbeaten streak alive. Chicago are coming off back to back wins at home but they have been really bad on the road this season and this is not going to be an easy match.  

Nashville SC (4 wins, 1 loss, 7 draws) played a really good match at home against Atlanta United last week but could not get all 3 points. They had to come back from an early goal to pull even at the 14th minute, and they took the lead at the 49th. However, their opponents pulled even at the 59th minute in their 2nd and last shot on target for the final 2-2. Nashville are now undefeated in their last 4 matches (2 wins, 2 draws, all at home) but kept just one clean sheet in that span. They are now sitting at the 5th spot of the Eastern Conference with 19 points, scoring 16 and conceding 13 goals in the process. They have the best home record in the Conference with 4 wins and 5 draws in 9 matches, scoring 14 goals and conceding 9 in the process, while also keeping 4 clean sheets.  

Chicago Fire (3 wins, 7 losses, 2 draws) conceded the first goal in their home match against Orlando City but managed to pull even at the end of the first half. They went on to score two more goals in the second half and emerged victorious by 3-1. That was their 2nd consecutive win and they are now undefeated in their last 3. Chicago Fire are sitting at the 12th spot of the Eastern Conference with 11 points, scoring 13 and conceding 18 goals in the process. They have been horrible on the road so far, losing all 4 of their matches and scoring just a single goal in the process. Last season they didn’t win any of their 11 away matches (7 losses, 5 draws) and they are traditionally really weak on the road.  

Nashville SC vs Chicago Fire. The two teams have met just once in the past, in a 1-1 draw last season. Nashville are unbeaten at home and they have been great so far, while Chicago have lost all 4 away matches and are historically terrible on the road. Taking the home team to cover the spread here.
