Next Sunday at 9:30pm GMT, on matchday 47 of the MLS, we will see Chicago play Revs at SeatGeek Stadium.

With a League position of tenth, Revs will be two places higher than struggling Chicago, when they visit SeatGeek Stadium.

Chicago Fire have 38 points to their name, going into this tie

A loss to Cincinnati away, and then Charlotte FC at home is not good enough to retain a credible run of form in the MLS. Chicago will see this as an opportunity to get their season back on track.

Also, Chicago have now lost five of their last nine fixtures, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Ezra Hendrickson. Now they have 0 matches won, 0 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in twelfth place, with a total of 38 points.

When Chicago host Revs, they will do so on the back of six wins, four darts, and six defeats on their own ground.

Victory for Chicago Fire would take their points tally to 41 so far this season.

New England Revolution arrive at this meeting, having secured 41 points so far this season

It was three points secured for Revs in their last fixture, beating Atlanta United 2-1 at Gillette Stadium.

Also, suffering five losses in eight meetings is a terrible run of form for any club, Bruce Arena’s Revs will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. They currently stand tenth in the League, with 41 points for a total of 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

Revs’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Chicago. In the 16 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three matches, drawn five fixtures, and lost eight meetings.

A win in this fixture would take New England Revolution’s points to 44 in the League.

Regarding their historical duels Chicago and Revs have faced each other 83 times in the past, with the balance of wins sitting in Chicago’s favour (34 – 31). Also, SeatGeek Stadium has proven to be something of a fortress for Chicago, where they have won all last two meetings. The last time both teams met in this competition was September 2022 and the score line ended up with a 0-0 draw.
