I need to burn off my fats and I was wondering which one would burn more fat?

Do whichever you enjoy more. Cycling would probably help you burn more calories but whats the point if you hate it so you end up stopping in a week.

Also perhaps you might be interested in circuit training that is probably one of the best ways if you have a decent base.

Running does burn more fat then cycling. Also, it would help in soccer because in soccer you are running not cycling. Plus, I enjoy running more :)

Well i might be wrong, but cycling builds ur thigh muscles more then running, but running helps more with cardio, so if i were you i would do both one on one day and another on the next.

Yes, running burns more calories for the same duration of activity. The thing is though you can easily cycle for much longer than you can run, and thats why I said cycling would burn more calories.
