Gerardo Martino’s boys are currently the overall major league leaders with 48 points. Their relets efforts to scoop the 3 points in almost every match has propelled them on top of the league. With an improved team form, they remain as an indomitable force in the league.
Moreover, Atlanta are undefeated in the last five league fixtures. To be precise, they are on a 5 home match unbeaten streak, which they will surely not be willing to break. In the last five league matches, they have been able to find the back of their opponent’s nets.
Columbus Crew will be on the road for this seemingly hard matchup against the league giants. Even is the chances of getting a win in this match are low, they will put up a strong fight. Notably, they are also in high spirits after 3 consecutive league matches.
After winning against New York Red Bulls, a team of the caliber of Atlanta Fc, Columbus Crew should not be taken for a joke. They are lethal and always strike when their opponents least expect.

Atlanta United vs Columbus Crew: Prediction
Atlanta is the favorites to emerge the winners in this matchup. Even though their opponents in this match are capable of pulling off some lethal stuns, this encounter is highly likely to be for the home side.
If at all the home side will get into the match knowing that the visitors are dangerous, they will exploit every chance they get to ensure they scoop the 3 points.
On the other hand, Columbus Crew will not give up easily and will strive to get something from this matchup, even if it means netting a single goal.
