Seattle Sounders vs Chicago Fire Preview and Prediction

2014 U.S. Open Cup semifinals started 22nd week of our MLS Predictions, and we are trying to capitalize on them. On Tuesday evening in hot Texas, our favorite FC Dallas lost to Philadelphia Union in penalty kicks, after 1-1 in regulation. Tonight in other semifinal,the Sounders facing Chicago Fire, and host team has high hopes to reach another U.S. Open Cup final.

The Sounders are my favorites to win, and I’m not expecting many goals in this one.

*Keep in mind I’m only around 42 % in my accuracy this season, but I have been there before. I’m not blaming my self for my predictions, but the players, and sometimes referees, most of the time is their fault.:)

However, despite poor start of the campaign, I’m confident trough the season, I should be able to get back to over 50%, but obvious goal is to cross 54% as earlier as possible.

SEATTLE SOUNDERS vs CHICAGO FIRE 10.30 PM

The winner of tonight’s game will play the final away at PPL Park in Philadelphia vs Union, team that last night eliminated heavy favorite FC Dallas, in penalty kicks.
Both teams have won 7 U.S. Open Cups combine, with Fire having 4, and Sounders 3 trophies, so the higher pressure is on Seattle team.

Sigi Schmid’ side is currently on the top of the Western Conference, despite the fact they are not playing well lately. They won their last game vs Houston Dynamo 2-0, but game was played on terrible pitch. Final score could be little misleading. Dynamo did not converted penalty, Sounders scored first goal on deflected shot, and second from the penalty spot, but team from Houston played decent game, and had enough chances to pull better result.
The Chicago Fire obviously getting their confidence back, after priceless home victory over powerful Red Bulls.

Defensively is was one of the best game by Fire, this season. Defensive duo Bakary Soumare and Jeff Larentowicz, together with goalie Sean Johnson, all had great game vs Red Bulls last Saturday..

 

I don’t expect many goals in that game, but Sounders should be able to score game-winner and advance to the final.
