Reason For Portland Timbers vs Chicago Fire Predictions

Both Portland Timbers and Chicago Fire picked up three points at the weekend and head into Thursday’s encounter in decent form, and judging by their head to head record over the last few seasons, we are expecting a very tight match with little, if anything, separating the pair at the final whistle.

All of the stats point towards the pair playing out a sixth stalemate in ten meetings, with both teams to get on the scoreboard. Five of the pairs’ nine previous encounters have ended in draws, which include each of the duo’s last three meetings. All of the pairs previous draws have either ended 1-1 or 2-2, which is one of the reasons we’re convinced both teams will score on Thursday.

Both teams have scored in six of the last seven matches between the two clubs, and there have only been two occasions when one of the sides have failed to score in their previous nine meetings. Both teams have also scored in four of Portland Timbers’ last six matches, with Thursday’s hosts only failing to score in one of those six games.

The form of both teams suggests we’re likely to have another draw on our hands this Thursday as both teams have only lost two of their last six matches. Portland Timbers’ two defeats both arrived away from home against Minnesota United, while Chicago Fire’s two losses came in July and the visitors are yet to taste defeat in August.

We’re confident that Thursday’s match will end in another draw between Portland Timbers and Chicago Fire and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1. Both teams head into the match in decent form and have proven difficult to beat of late, and this fixture has a history of producing draws and another on Thursday would make it four on the run between the pair. We are yet to have a goalless draw and there have only been two occasions in the nine previous encounters between these two clubs that one side has failed to score, so expect goals at both ends of the pitch and a competitive ninety minutes from Thursday’s match.
