Minnesota United host Chicago Fire in an MLS clash at the Allianz Field on Wednesday evening.

Minnesota United are currently fifth in the Western Conference standings, but are in an iffy run of form. They have only won one of their last five games.

In their last game, Minnesota United played a dour 0-0 draw against MLS new-boys Nashville SC.

Chicago Fire, on their part are in very decent form. They have won three of their last five matches, including a 2-1 success over DC United in their last match.

The two sides have faced each other only three times in the past, with Minnesota United winning two of those games. Chicago Fire will have added incentive to win on Wedneday night, as they would tie up the head-to-head record against Minnesota United.

Minnesota United vs Chicago Fire Prediction

.Chicago Fire definitely have recent form on their side, having lost only won of their last five games. But over the course of the season, Minnesota United have been the side that has played the better football.

However, we are siding with recent form before overall pedigree, in predicting a narrow away win for Chicago Fire in this game.

Prediction - Minnesota United 1-2 Chicago Fire
