Wednesday evening at Solider Field Charlotte FC will look to capture their third straight victory taking on the Chicago Fire. The two combatants in this fixture have previously met four times, with the Crowns owning the head-to-head battle-winning on three occasions. Currently, in the Eastern Conference table, Charlotte is in sixth place with 17 points, while the Fire is in 14th place with 10 points.

Charlotte FC last weekend had to grind one out to get on the scoresheet defeating Nashville SC 1-0 at home. Patrick Agyemang broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute, sifting one past the keeper with a left-footed strike hitting the corner. CLTFC got some revenge by defeating Nashville SC with a clean sheet victory as they clashed earlier in the campaign.

Meanwhile Chicago Fire FC they’re coming off a 3-1 defeat on the road against St. Louis City SC. The defeat last weekend extended the Fire’s winless run to five. The Fire did break their goalless run finding the back of the net for the first time since April 6th. Belgian Hugo Cuypers buried one in the 46th minute with a left-footed shot from very close range.

Chicago Fire FC vs. Charlotte FC Betting Predictions

Chicago Fire Preview

Hugo Cuypers joined the Fire for a club-record fee as a designated player from KAA Gent in the winter transfer window. At 26, the Belgian is off to a leisurely start to his MLS career. Through 12 matches Cuypers has registered three goals on 23 total shots taken. With his marker last weekend, Hugo terminated his goalless run at six matches.

The youthful talented winger Brain Gutierrez made his 99th MLS appearance last weekend. The 20-year-old American is tied with Hugo Cuypers for the team lead in goals with three. In 698 minutes played in 2024, Gutierrez has accumulated 20 shots with six hitting the target.

Charlotte FC Preview

Arguably the man of the match last weekend was the Crowns goalkeeper Kristijan Kahlina. The 31-year-old made two stops, collecting his second straight clean sheet, adding to his 2024 total of four. Through 12 starts this campaign, the 31-year-old currently possesses a 69 percent save percentage.

Midfielder Brandt Bronico appeared in the starting 11 for the first time this year. The 28-year-old last weekend played a total of 89 minutes, the most since last season's playoff performance back in October. Bronico's lone shot attempt was blocked while finishing with a 73 percent passing completion rate going 19-for-26.

Chicago Fire FC vs. Charlotte FC - My Pick

This midweek contest features two sides who scuffle their way to getting on the scoresheet. Chicago is averaging one goal per game while Charlotte is not fairing any better averaging just shy of a goal per match. Through five away fixtures the numbers are bleak on offence as CLTFC has only bagged three road goals.

On the other hand, the Fire has just lacked that quality to get on the scoreboard in recent times. Solider Field hasn’t been the home fortress that Chicago was hoping for as they have been left off the tally sheet in their last three home affairs. The under 2.5 goals have hit only four times for games involving the Fire. Facing Charlotte though we lean towards this encounter going under as 75 percent of the games that involve the Crowns have gone under the 2.5 goal mark.
