The Chicago Fire look to continue their recent upturn in fortune on the lakefront this weekend against Eastern Conference rivals Atlanta United.
The Fire enter Saturday’s match on a three-game winning streak, their longest of the season.
With playoff spots still up for grabs, a win will push Chicago closer to contention in the MLS standings after a horrific start to the campaign. Coach Ezra Hendrickson’s team has climbed within two points of the top seven, a spot they must reach to secure a postseason berth.
On the flip side, Atlanta has gone 1-1-1 over their last three, including a loss to the LA Galaxy last time out. The visitors rank 12th in the Eastern Conference with 24 points through 21 games.
The last seven meetings between these two sides have resulted in wins for the home club. Saturday’s contest will take place at Soldier Field, where the Fire are expected to pick all three points in front of their home fans.
