Atlanta United vs New York Red Bulls
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals- 1/1!
Will Atlanta United give their play-off hopes a much-needed boost?
At the weekend, the Five Stripes could only draw 2-2 with FC Cincinnati; Thiago Almada and Andrew Gutman on target at TQL Stadium.
A week earlier, Gutman’s stunning 95th minute strike had seen Atlanta snatch a victory against Seattle.
Nevertheless, Gonzalo Pineda’s team have only won three of their last 14, so are now second bottom of the east.
Up in fourth is where one will find New York Red Bulls.
Gerhard Struber’s side though were beaten 1-0 by Orlando in New Jersey on Saturday, the same side that had dumped them out the U.S. Open Cup last month.
So, RBNY have actually only won one of their last six in MLS, derailing their challenge at the top of the Eastern Conference.
Nevertheless, having beaten Atlanta 2-1 at Red Bull Arena less than seven weeks ago, New York will fancy their chances of a win at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
