Match preview

New York City FC’s downturn in form continues.

On Wednesday night, the champions suffered a shock 3-1 home defeat to Charlotte FC in New Jersey.

This is just the fourth time in MLS history that an expansion club have beaten the reigning MLS Cup champions.

More importantly, that’s now three successive defeats for NYCFC, also beaten by Columbus Crew and Inter Miami, both 3-2 and both on the road.

So, Nick Cushing’s team have slipped down to third in the Eastern Conference, six points below leaders Philadelphia.

Chicago Fire meantime were resurgent between 13 July and 6 August, accumulating 13 points out of a possible 15.

However, Ezra Hendrickson’s team came crashing back down to earth last weekend, demolished 4-1 by Philadelphia at Subaru Park.

So, despite their fabulous recent form, the Fire are back down in 12th, three points below the play-off line.

Who will claim a much-needed win at Solider Field?
