Competition – MLS

Stadium – Toyota Park

Date: 23rd August

Kick-off time – 23:59 GMT

These two teams face each other off the back of league losses last Sunday and they will both be looking to get back to winning ways at Toyota Park.

Chicago Fire’s loss to Montreal Impact at the weekend was their 8 consecutive loss and their fans will be frustrated even further if they fail to get all three points from this game.

Atlanta United beat Columbus Crew at the weekend in a game where Martinez scored for the 27th time this season, and the visitors will be looking to heap more misery on Fire by the end of 90 minutes here.

Chicago Fire are really struggling with game management as evidenced by their stoppage time loss againt Montreal in their last game.

Higuain has been in fine form in terms of dictating play from midfield for the visitors and he will be used against their struggling host here.

Fire have lost their last 8 games on the spin, while the visitors have three wins from their last four league games.

Chicago Fire has the better head to head record with 28 wins and 18 losses from 64 meetings over the years.
