TFC Prediction League: Round Seven (vs. Chicago Fire)

Bastian Schweinsteiger comes to Toronto to take on Michael Bradley and the Reds.

MLS: Columbus Crew SC at Chicago Fire Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Toronto FC are back at home on Friday night for one of those rare games in which Sebastian Giovinco is not the biggest soccer name in town.

Bastian Schweinsteiger, of course, is coming north of the border with the Chicago Fire, who look a much-improved side this year and have picked up 11 points from their first six games - good for third in the Eastern Conference.

Unsurprisingly, though, given Chicago have finished second last, last and last in the East over the past three seasons, Toronto have enjoyed more success in this matchup of late. The Fire have only beaten TFC once in the past three seasons, with Toronto taking all three of the 2016 meetings.

Chicago are a different beast this year, however, with Schweinsteiger, Dax McCarty and Juninho forming a vastly experienced midfield. Up front, Nemanja Nikolic has four MLS goals to his name already.

As always, leave your score prediction in the comments and we’ll do the rest - you’ll get two points for the correct result and one apiece for the number of goals the two teams score.

Mike Whaley was spot on for the second week in a row against Columbus to jump four points clear at the top of the table, so put your money on whatever he’s predicting this week. JohnnyHandsome also got it right to boost himself up into the chasing pack.
