A struggling Chicago Fire side hope to turn their fortunes around as they face Columbus Crewe in MLS this weekend.
Chicago Fire currently sit 14th in MLS's Easter Conference with four wins, eight draws and five losses from sixteen games this season.
Chicago have had a miserable time in MLS so far this season having failed to get going in the Eastern Conference as they sit second from bottom in the standings with the joint-least wins in the East.
They're coming into this game out of form, too, having failed to win any of their last four matches, the most recent of which was a 1-4 defeat at home to Houston Dynamo.
The loss to Houston was a damning one on their ow patch given the scoreline and it makes a second loss on the bounce, a run they'll be desperate to halt here.
They can at least take some inspiration from their home form having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five games on home soil, a run that shows they clearly demonstrate promise in front of their own crowd.
Chicago need a result here and while the odds are against them three points is not impossible.
Columbus Crew currently sit 5th in MLS's Easter Conference with seven wins, three draws and six losses from sixteen games this season.
It's been a good, if not inconsistent, campaign thus far for a Columbus side that has displayed plenty of potential in the opening months of the season.
They enter this game amidst a mixed run of form on the whole having won two and lost three of their last five matches, the most recent of which was a 4-2 win over Charlotte.
The win over Charlotte marked their second victory on the trot, a run that has put to bed the misery of the three-match losing streak that preceded this recent two-game run.
However, both of those wins came on home soil but it's away from home where their troubles arise and they enter this game having won just one and four of their last five games on the road, also losing their last three on the bounce.
Their recent head-to-head record against Chicago is encouraging, however, with Columbus having won two and drawn one of their last four meetings with The Fire.
They should, then, be confident of a result here despite their poor away form.
For our Chicago vs. Columbus prediction, we're going for a 2-2 draw.
