Atlanta United FC vs D.C. United | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
There is plenty to look forward to in Major League Soccer this weekend and on Friday night Atlanta United welcome DC United to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Atlanta United have been enjoying a good season and come into this match, sitting top of the Eastern Conference. New York City FC sit behind them by just a single point, so they cannot afford any slip-ups if they want to maintain their place at the top of the table.
DC United sit bottom of the Eastern Conference but they have played only 15 games this season in comparison to Atlanta United’s 21 matches. A win could be enough to lift them off the bottom.
Atlanta United FC Form
Atlanta United are looking to get back to winning ways in this match following their 1-1 draw with Seattle Sounders last Sunday. The draw means Atlanta United have won one of their last 3 games, which was an away win at Philadelphia.
Home form in the MLS has been mixed and despite being undefeated in their last 4 matches, Atlanta United have won only two of their last 5 league games at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
However, one thing you can guarantee when Atlanta United play at home is goals and they have scored in every home MLS game this season. Both teams have scored in 4 of their last 5 home MLS matches.
D.C. United Form
DC United recorded just their third win of the season last week as they defeated Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1 at home.
That was their first win in 6 games in all competitions and DC United fans will be hoping it’s the start of a good run. However, away form in Major League soccer has been poor and DC United have won just one match of the road this season.
They have failed to win any of their last 5 away league games, but have picked up 3 draws at Los Angeles FC, Toronto and LA Galaxy. DC United have been very exciting to watch away from home, seeing over 3.5 goals in their last 3 away matches.
Head to Head
Atlanta United will be without the injured duo of Greg Garza and Darlington Nagbe for this game. Top goal scorer Josef Martinez should be fit to take his place up-front.
DC United could hand a full debut to Wayne Rooney, who came off the bench in the win over Vancouver Whitecaps. Taylor Kemp, Nicholas DeLeon, Chris Odoi-Atsem and Ulises Segura are all struggling with injury.
Atlanta United FC vs D.C. United Betting Tip: DC United to win
DC United will have a little more confidence following the win over Vancouver Whitecaps but their away form suggests they will struggle to win this game. Atlanta United are the favourites to pick up maximum points at 2/5 with Ladbrokes.
Both teams have been entertaining to watch when playing home and away respectively. We could see plenty of goals in this game and both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is 4/5 at William Hill.
Finally, Josef Martinez has been in excellent form this season and has 19 goals in 21 appearances. The Atlanta United striker is the top scorer in the MLS by some distance and can be backed at 2/1 to score the first goal with Ladbrokes.
