We're in the Windy City today, hoping to see Chicago blow through their visitors in one of the televised MLS games.

In the last three seasons, the Fire have won this fixture three times by a combined 10-1. This term, Ezra Hendrickson's men have won four of the last five at Soldier Field, where they've also managed clean sheets in 7/11 since the beginning of the campaign.

Gonzalo Pineda's Atlanta are a very ordinary W1-D2-L7 on the road this season. They've conceded twice on all of their last seven away days. That markedly inferior defence might be the difference between the two sides tonight and - at anything above even money - we'll take Chicago to extend their excellent record in this fixture.
