Charlotte FC have won eight of 11 MLS home games. Chicago Fire are aiming to win back-to-back MLS away games for the first time since October 2013.
Will Charlotte FC’s remarkable form at Bank of America Stadium continue?
On Wednesday night, Queen City easily swatted aside D.C. United 3-0 with Karol Świderski and Quinn McNeill both on target.
This means they’ve now won eight of 11 home games so far this season, the joint-best record for an expansion club, alongside Atlanta (2017) and Chicago (1998).
This victory saw Christian Lattanzio’s team leap above the play-off line, so will they stay there?
Chicago Fire meantime had been the east’s biggest climbers before last weekend’s goalless draw with Atlanta United rather halted their progress.
Nevertheless, the Fire have now kept 11 clean sheets in their last 15 home matches, equaling the best record across a 15-match period in MLS history.
Also, Ezra Hendrickson’s side have now taken 16 points from their last nine games, but they’ve now fallen below the play-off places.
Will Charlotte continue to be formidable in North Carolina?
