Our prediction for this MLS match:
CenturyLink Field will host Sunday’s football game between Seattle Sounders and Chicago Fire, who face each other in the opening match of the season. Seattle Sounders are on a quest to defend their trophy, but the game against Raphael Wicky’s troops will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Peru international Manuel Ruidiaz, who scored 15 goals in the MLS last term, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Chicago Fire continue life without Serbian tactician Veljko Paunovic. New boss Raphael Wicky is on a quest to bring glory days back to Soldier Field, and seeing that Chicago were producing fine performances in pre-season, we predict that they are going to share the spoils with Portland Timbers in the opening match of the season. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Spanish midfielder Medran, who played for La Liga sides Valencia and Getafe in the past.
