Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Two teams, desperate to return to the Eastern Conference playoff race, will be called the on Saturday New York Red Bulls host Chicago Fire from the Red Bull Arena.

New York are currently five points behind in the playoff pursuit, while Chicago have suffered consecutive one-goal defeats.


Prediction for this match

The New York Red Bulls finally picked up three points last week after falling short on several tight issues.

Their 1-0 win over Columbus Crew ended a winless streak of seven games that included four defeats by a single goal in the previous five games.

The high pressure system of Gerhard Struber was a hit-and-miss for this team all season and has proven to be a complicated system that his young group has to master consistently.

They are clearly at their best at the Red Bull Arena, winning five times at home this year and conceding no goals in the last two games in a row.

Another shutout on Saturday would be the 200th in their regular season history as they are currently fifth in league history in that division.

Not only is this weekend the final regular season clash between Chicago and New York, but Struber knows it’s a crucial game in the playoff race as the Red Bulls have two games on the three teams they need to get into one Playoff positions come to Columbus, Atlanta United and DC United.

The Fire beat Orlando City in most statistical categories last week, with the exception of the main one, the scoreboard, where they lost 1-0.

For the second time in their last three games, they have had more shots on goal than their opponents, but they continue to struggle to prevent goals. That season they conceded 18 away and only scored five.

It was a frustrating campaign for Raphael Wicky and his team, who take part in every game but don’t seem to find that little extra for three points.

Chicago have usually been able to control the pace of their games with sharp passes and ball movements, but they seem to have at least one lack of concentration that has resulted in them mostly missing out.

With 15 games remaining, their current road trip could decide whether or not they reach the playoffs this year, with the next four games being played away from home.

A year ago this team was just one game away from a post-season post and with seven points to catch up and five teams to go, they could hardly face another long setback like the one they had earlier this season Afford.
