FC Cincinnati – Chicago Fire Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 19:30

There were some nervy late moments, but FC Cincinnati (4-13-2) held on for a 3-2 win over the Houston Dynamo Saturday at Nippert Stadium, ending a six-match losing streak. Victor Ulloa made it 3-0 in the 61st minute, but the MLS expansion side had to sweat out the three points after a Romell Quioto penalty kick and Nick Hagglund own goal twominutes apart late. Kekuta Manneh opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark andRashawn Dally followed with his first MLS goal nine minutes later to double FC Cincinnati's lead.

Cristian Martinez is a Columbus Crew midfielder who was born in Panama City on February 6, 1997. The Panama footballer found the net for Columbus on his MLS debut on June 1, 2016, becoming the youngest goal scorer in the club history. Martinez began his senior career in 2012 at local club Chorrillo, but after four years he was sent on loan to MLS club Columbus Crew.

So far this year he is averaging 64 minutes per appearance. He has totaled 2,351 minutes and holds an average of 81 minutes per appearance. The 30-year-old from the United States has scored 12 goals this season which has him sitting in 5th in the East among forwards and 10th among all players in the league. Sapong is another player to keep an eye on for the squad from Chicago. C. Over the course of that time, the 31-year-old has netted 12 goals and has had an assist on 0 goals. Regarding shots on target, Nikolic has earned 20 which is 45th in professional soccer and 10th in the Eastern Conference among forwards. Nikolic has started 23 contests for the year and has totaled 16 fouls in the process. J. Nemanja Nikolic is a great player to watch for the Fire. Up to now for the season, he has produced 27 shots on target which has him sitting in 3rd in the East among forwards. The forward from Hungary has played in 28 contests for the year and has played a total of 1,803 minutes.

Cincinnati did well to beat Houston Dynamo on home soil in their last league fixture, but seeing that they were hammered by Minnesota United in their last away game, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Sapong, who scored a brace in the triumph over Atlanta. A man to keep an eye on in Veljko Paunovics team will be C.J. Seeing that Chicago Fire play host to newcomers Cincinnati at their SeatGeek Stadium, they will not have a better chance than this to regain a much-needed confidence.

Match Preview: Chicago Fire

Veljko Paunovics troops produce much better performances at home than on the travels and the fact that they rolled over Atlanta United 5-1 in their last home fixture is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Sundays football game. Chicago Fire suffered their eighth defeat of the season at the weekend, with the team losing to Sporting Kansas City on the road.

Weaknesses: While it might be easy to blast this Cincy side in this column, we must take into account that Atlanta United and LAFC are statistical anomalies in the expansion category. The fact remains that making the jump to MLS has not traditionally gone well for most clubs. Without being overly harsh, lets see where Cincy might struggle on Saturday. Torontos nine-year playoff absence, Montreals woeful beginnings, and Orlandos continuing mess have been the norm.

Nijkamp spent seven years heading up the technical side of PEC Zwolle in the Eredivisie and has promised to rebuild the sporting foundations of the club moving forward. However, with Cincy losing six of its seven matches since Nijkamps hiring, the project seems to have a long-term trajectory and the new GM will have his work cut out for him. Lets see whats in store for the Men in Red. Will the visitors build some momentum after their win against Houston this weekend, or will the hosts manage to stay among the sides battling for seventh in the East? The club also made significant changes to its front office, hiring Gerard Nijkamp as the General Manager of the club in May.

Moreover, Cruzs mentality seemed infectious as Cincy won over 65% of its duels last Saturday. Should he feature against the Fire, Katai, Gaitan, and Mihailovic will have to think on their toes. Speed, size, and passing ability are in Cruzs locker and he played a crucial role in stifling any Houston productivity in the midfield while also serving as a key transition pivot on two of Cincys goals. Similarly, opting for Cruz instead of Victor Ulloa allowed Damets side to pressure quickly, constantly, and effectively.

Series Matchup at Fire

Lamah and Mattocks have shown flashes of brilliance but have shown why they were made available by their previous clubs. Lastly, Kendall Waston has validated criticism of his contract holdout at Vancouver by playing in a way that indicates he is merely along for the ride as he collects a sizable paycheck. Adding the likes of Kendall Waston, Fanendo Adi, Darren Mattocks, Roland Lamah and Kenny Saief as DPs, TAM players, and higher budget charge players caused some head scratching at the time but have turned out to be disastrous in hindsight. Adi, Cincys highest paid player, has yet to score an MLS goal for his side despite being signed as the cornerstone DP forward for the club. Kenny Saiefs locker room ego, lack of work rate, and conflict inducing nature earned him an early loan termination.
