Atlanta United vs Montreal Impact, Saturday’s match for the Major League Soccer at the Mercedes-Benz in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
Atlanta will host, in its Mercedes Benz stadium, Montreal in a new Major League Soccer (MLS) game.
Atlanta arrives at this game with three games less than its rival and in the fourth position of its conference. They arrive after a midweek loss against Toronto. In their favor, they have not conceded goals in their last five MLS matches.
Atlanta will not have its protagonist in the attack, Josef Martinez, since he has not yet returned from his appointments with the Venezuelan team in the Copa America. In addition, Atlanta has up to four injured players: Bello, Villalba, Kratz and Barco.
It occupies an impressive second position of its conference. Their performance throughout the season has been somewhat uneven. They suffered very crazy defeats (like 7-1 against Sporting KC, 3-0 against Philadelphia and Orlando City).
Their inconsistency is also evident in the difference of goals: they conceded 29 and scored 23. They conceded goals in their last five games. A victory could put them in the first place of the conference.
Their attack focuses on what Saphir Taider can do. The competition at the national level has greatly affected the team, which will not feature Brault-Guillard, Piette, Lovitz, Browne and Azira, all focused on their national teams. Also has injured: Bayiha and Piatti.
Both teams have many losses in their starting XI due to the international commitments of many players.
We’re going to bet Atlanta will impose its home game and the least-scoring team, along with Los Angeles, from all MLS teams with just 14 goals conceded.
