Chicago Fire did not do much to deserve a draw last round against Montreal. The team was outplayed and it seems Chicago will need time to get in terms with smooth football. The defense has been particularly sloppy, especially with high balls. Nevertheless, the attack of the team is decent with Oduro and Nyarko and these two will be the players, who will decide the season of Chicago.
Philladelphia made a decent match against Colorado, but only after the team has been left with a man in more. In fact Philladelphia does not know how to mount pressure, but here it will be sufficient for them to sit back and defend. Philly have a sloppy keeper and bad defense, and this will result in allowing too many chances for the home side.
Tip: Chicago - 0.5
