Match preview

Can Columbus Crew cling onto their place in the play-offs?

On Wednesday night, Luis Díaz was the only scorer as the Black and Gold beat Inter Miami 1-0 at Field.

So, it’s been a generally very good week for Caleb Porter’s men after Steven Moreira’s 96th minute equaliser in last weekend’s Hell is Real Derby.

Overall, the Crew have only lost one of their last 14 MLS matches, leaving them sixth in the Eastern Conference.

Chicago Fire meantime are not in such a healthy positition.

The 1998 MLS Cup winners have not qualified for the play-offs since 2017 and that’s not going to change on Decision Day this year either.

Ezra Hendrickson’s side had lost three in a row before, at least, breaking that streak thanks to a goalless draw in Foxborough against New England in mid-week.

Nevertheless, with just six games to go, the Fire are five points below the play-off line, needing a huge upturn to gatecrash the post-season party.

Thus, a home win in Ohio seems the most likely outcome.
