Will Chicago Fire’s sudden upturn in form continue?

Last weekend, Ezra Hendrickson’s side won again, this time beating Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1 at BC Place.

Xherdan Shaqiri breaking the deadlock in trademark fashion with Rafael Czichos and then Chris Mueller spectacularly both also netting.

This is the Fire’s first-ever victory in the Pacific Northwest, coming at the 28th attempt.

Almost more surprisingly, that’s now Chicago’s third successive victory, following wins over Toronto and Seattle.

The Fire last won three successive games in July 2017, but this resurgence has seen them climb from bottom up to ninth in the east.

Will Chicago’s improbable play-off push continue?

Atlanta United meanwhile kick off in the Windy City now two points and three places below their hosts.

Gonzalo Pineda’s team were beaten again last Sunday, going down 2-0 against LA Galaxy in California.

So, the Five Stripes have only won two of their last 12, last winning on the road on 2 April.

Thus, this isn’t often the case, but a home win seems likely at Solider Field.
