MLS expert Luke Beaumont (@LBBeaumont) bagged four winners from five selections in Major League Soccer last week. Here’s his favourite fancy from Sunday night’s action.
Orlando City v Chicago Fire | Monday 00:30
This match, alongside New England v Toronto, will be one of the most entertaining matches of the weekend. Both sides are flying high in the Eastern Conference with Chicago Fire sitting second and Orlando City in third.
Orlando had previously been on a rugged run without a win but put an end to that form midweek with a 2-0 victory over D.C. United at the Orlando City Stadium. They will be hoping to make it back-to-back home wins against Chicago here.
Chicago Fire will provide a huge test for the hosts as they are unbeaten in their last five, winning four. They’re well worthy of their current standing in the Eastern Conference.
I fancy this game to have plenty of chances for both sides, but I’m not too sure if there will be goals in this one. I just know that it will be entertaining. I also wouldn’t fancy picking a winner in this meeting as it is virtually impossible to call with a great degree of certainty.
There’s going to be a different approach for this selection, and it’s going to include corners. The reasoning for this is, there will be plenty of chances at either end of the pitch and I believe this will end with a great amount of corners.
