Heading into today around evening time’s Chicago Fire-San Jose Earthquakes coordinate (7 p.m. CT, FS1, TUDN), the Fire are not just the top picks to win their gathering—they’re currently among the top choices to win the whole MLS is Back Tournament, as indicated by FiveThirtyEight.
At the present time, the details site is giving the Fire a 54 percent opportunity to win Group B, and a six percent opportunity to win the competition—which is behind just LAFC, Philadelphia Union, Toronto FC and Minnesota United.
In the event that the Fire beat San Jose, they will secure up a spot in the knockout round, and they’ll be viewing the result of the night’s other match, Seattle-Vancouver (9:30 p.m. CT, FS1, TUDN), to see whether they’ve won the gathering through and through.
To complete first in Group B, the Fire would require a success against San Jose, and they’d need a Sounders win or an attract the subsequent match. For San Jose, it’s significantly more straightforward. The Quakes will complete on Group B with a success over Chicago.
A draw today around evening time would see the Quakes finish the gathering stage with five focuses. The Fire would have four focuses with one game left to play (Thursday versus Vancouver, 8 a.m. CT, ESPN), which means a gathering win would in any case be in Chicago’s grasp.
