Competition: Leagues Cup

Market: Chicago Fire win

Odds: 13/10 @ BetUS

Looking to clinch back-to-back Leagues Cup victories in the early hours of Tuesday, a high-flying Chicago will travel to the Estadio Cuauhtemoc when they meet Puebla.

Starting with the hosts, opening their Leagues Cup adventure with a nightmare display last week as they slumped to a 4-0 drumming at the hands of Minnesota, Puebla find themselves in the midst of a public struggle. Coming under a huge amount of scrutiny since opening the 2023 Liga MX campaign earlier in the month, Los Camoteros will be more than aware that they face a tough examination in the early hours of Tuesday. Heading into the month Leagues Cup interval with a routine 3-0 defeat against Club America on July 16th, Eduardo Arce’s men have now lost each of their last three straight appearances across all competitions by an aggregate score of 10-2. Gaining a reputation for their glaring issues at the back, it should also be noted that Puebla have recorded just a single win from any of their last nine competitive showdowns continuing on from last season.

As for the visitors, while Puebla might find themselves in the midst of an extended struggle, Chicago should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Opening their Leagues Cup adventure with an action-packed 3-2 win away at Minnesota last week, the Fire are enjoying what has quickly become their brightest run of the 2023 campaign. Heading into the month interval with another eye-catching performance as they clinched a 1-0 victory at home against Toronto, interim boss Frank Klopas has seen his high-flying squad gain a string of plaudits. With their continued purple patch underlined by a 3-0 romp against Montreal on July 13th, Chicago will be confident of making another statement here. Winning each of their last four appearances across all formats, Tuesday’s guests have also impressed with their new-found defensive resolve. In fact, on what has been a staggering run, Chicago have not shipped a single strike in almost 400 minutes of action.
