📋 Team News: Chicago Fire

Chicago Fire manager Raphaël Wicky does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game thanks to a fully healthy squad available for selection.

It’s our opinion that Men in Red could use a 4-2-3-1 system for this game and select Bobby Shuttleworth, Miguel Ángel Navarro, Francisco Calvo, Mauricio Pineda, Boris Sekulic, Gastón Giménez, Álvaro Medrán, Fabian Herbers, Ignacio Aliseda, Przemyslaw Frankowski and Robert Beric.

📋 Team News: Columbus Crew

Due to a completely injury-free group available to choose from, Columbus Crew boss Caleb Porter has no fitness concerns to report coming into this clash.

We are inclined to think that The Crew appear most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup, starting the game with Eloy Room, Harrison Afful, Jonathan Mensah, Josh Williams, Milton Valenzuela, Sebastian Berhalter, Artur, Pedro Santos, Darlington Nagbe, Luis Díaz and Gyasi Zardes.

🔮 Prediction

In our view, Columbus Crew and Chicago Fire may both find scoring difficult here.

A draw is a real possibility, as a clear-cut winner doesn’t appear to be obvious. Our tip is therefore for a tight encounter with a 0-0 draw at the end of the 90.
