This is an indifferent match between two teams that have been eliminated from the playoff chase. Orlando City will now play host to Chicago on Sunday, in the final match of the season for both sides. The hosts have been really bad lately and are struggling mightily to get results. Chicago have been slightly better but not very stable.

Spread: Chicago Fire 0.0
Total: 3.25 Goals
Orlando City (9-14-10) looked really uninspired in their away match against FC Cincinnati, the worst team in the MLS. Their opponents took the lead and all Orlando could do was score a late equalizer for the final 1-1. Orlando have had another bad season, especially in the second half. Their loss against Cincinnati means that they have not won any of their last seven matches (0-3-4). They are still stuck at the penultimate spot of the Eastern Conference with 37 points. Orlando have not been very good at home either (6-7-3), winning just two of their last seven home matches in all competitions (2-3-2).
On the other hand, Chicago Fire (9-12-12) played for yet another draw, a 2-2 at home against Toronto FC. Their opponents took the lead at the start of the second half but Toronto overturned that lead with goals at the 68th and 77th minute. However, Toronto scored a late equalizer for the final 2-2. That was the third draw in their last four for Chicago Fire. And they have lost just once in their last six (2-1-3). But Chicago are left out of the playoff chase, sitting 8th with 39 points, six behind New England. Chicago have been awful on the road this season (1-10-5), scoring just 13 and conceding 27 goals. However, they did score in four of their last five away matches.
The two teams split the points in a 1-1 draw in Chicago earlier in the season, while Chicago had won each of the previous three against Orlando. Moreover, Chicago Fire have never lost in this venue over the years (1-0-3) and won here by 2-1 last season. This is an indifferent match for both sides, and this is one of the few venues that Chicago traditionally fare well. They could get a result here, but it is going to be an open match.
