The NY Red Bulls are coming off a big win over another team that’s hoping to make the playoffs this season. The team in question is DC United, which hosted the game with the Red Bulls last weekend on its turf in Washington but still ended up losing 5-3.
Six days later, the Red Bulls are coming back to Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ, where they’ve been playing well this season. In fact, six of the eight wins the New Yorkers recorded in 2023 happened on their turf. Still, they are without a single win at home since August, but this shouldn’t worry them much as Chicago Fire is also without a win on the road for a long time.
In fact, Chicago is 0-1-4 in the last five away matches. The last time this team won an MLS game on the road was in June when we saw the Fire beat Sporting KC 1-0 in Kansas.
New York Red Bulls vs. Chicago Fire Prediction
The big win over DC United has certainly given a massive morale boost to the Red Bulls. Even if that wasn’t the case, they’d still be on the front foot against Chicago Fire as Saturday’s game is played on their turf. They’re going to dominate the game, but will they be able to turn that dominance into goals? We think they will. In fact, we think they’re going to score at least a couple of goals.
